The world came to a standstill in the early months of 2020 when the Covid-19 virus started spreading to different corners of the planet.  Most countries closed their borders and went under lockdown to control the spread of the virus. Although the threat of the virus still lingers, countries around the world have started adapting to the new normal and have began to open the doors to tourists. Dubai is one among these countries. The Dubai Government has left no stone unturned to make sure the tourists get to enjoy all the popular attractions of the city, including the legendary Dubai desert safari.

Dubai Desert Safari

Desert Safari in Dubai is considered one of the best things do in the city. In fact, it is akin to blasphemy to leave Dubai without checking out the desert safari. While there are several types of desert safaris, the most popular is the evening desert safari. Filled with adventure, entertainment and great food, it promises a memorable evening in the vast desert dunes of Dubai.

What to Expect during Desert Safari?

One of the best things about Dubai desert safari is that it takes you away from the hustle bustle of the main city. You would be driven into the desert, on the outskirts of the city, in a comfortable 4×4 vehicle. From the moment you reach the desert, you would get to enjoy some adrenaline-filling and entertaining activities.

Dune Bashing: Dune bashing is the most thrilling and the first thing that you would do during the desert safari. The tires of your SUV would be deflated before you head to 45-minutes of adrenaline-rushing dune bashing session over the ever-shifting dunes of the desert. The dune bashing session is safe and is always done by a professionally trained driver.

Desert Camp Adventures: After dune bashing, the SUV snakes its way to the desert camp, where more adventures would be awaiting you. Here, you get to try camel riding, sand boarding and quad biking. You do not need to have any specific skills to enjoy these activities. All you need to do is listen to the instructors carefully while trying any of the activities.

Sunset Photography: While the activities at the desert camp are quite thrilling, do not forget to take time to appreciate the raw and mysterious beauty of the desert. The sunset at the desert is completely surreal, and you would not be able to put your camera down.

Desert Camp Activities: Inside the Bedouin-style decorated desert camp, you would get to indulge in some more interesting desert camp activities. You would get to dress up in traditional Arab clothes and get your photos clicked, get your hands painted with henna and even smoke a shisha.

Entertainment Activities: As the sun goes down and the camp is filled with beautiful lights, your eyes would be treated with some marvelous entertainment programs. You would get to see two lively dance performances by a belly dancer and Tanoura dancer during the desert safari. Both dances are equally intriguing and entertaining.

Desert Dining: Before you head back to the city, you would be treated with a delicious buffet dinner, complete with BBQ, main course as well as dessert. The desert safari dinner usually includes traditional and international dishes. It also caters to both vegetarians and non-vegetarians.
