We’ve all heard stories about mysterious deserts like Aladdin, Sinbad, Alibaba, and Arabian Nights. When you visit desert Safari Dubai Deals, it’s easy to see where many writers got their ideas and how the desert helped feed their imaginations. Only the Sahara Desert in North Africa is bigger. The desert is both huge and harsh, and it serves as a constant reminder of how powerful and all-encompassing nature is. This makes Dubai so exciting: its determination to stay alive despite the harshness of desert life. On the tour day, our guide, Osama, picked us up at our hotel.
Osama helped us load our stuff into the 4WD Land Cruiser. Most of the time, the drivers listen to English-language radio stations. Before we got to the safari area, we stopped at a gas station for a few minutes so Osama could let some air out of the tyres of the 4WD. This was very important for the dune drive that was about to happen. This was like a small rest stop, where we went to the bathroom or bought some water.
On The Way Towards Desert Safari
Finally, it was time to leave the dunes, so Osama put his foot down hard on the gas. We started to glide quickly over the dunes, making me feel like I had butterflies in my stomach, but in a good way. For one thing, you get to feel the desert’s excitement without the usual discomfort. All of the 4x4s have air conditioning and are usually quite comfortable. You can’t help but have the silliest grin on your face as you drive over the dunes and feel the car’s wheels slide and drift under you. It’s thrilling and exciting, and with our trusted driver, we felt very safe.
Now is an excellent time to say that you probably shouldn’t eat a big meal before going dune bashing, and if you get car sick easily, you might want to take some Dramamine first. But this experience was a solid 10/10 for me. I didn’t particularly appreciate riding camels as much as the other things. The camels smell very sharp and pungent, and sitting on them is so painful that you can feel it the next day. Also, the weather in the desert never changes. You can also go on a camel safari in places other than Dubai, so if it’s not something you want to do, I think you can skip it. But if riding a camel has always been on your list of things to do, go for it. Just don’t come back and say we didn’t tell you.
Things to Do in Desert Safari
If you like having more power and being in charge, you might want to try driving an ATV or dune buggy. For safety, everyone on tour will have to wear a helmet. Stay close to the Bedouin camp, of course, because if you go too far away, it might be hard to find your way back. I have never heard of anyone getting lost, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. I didn’t do this activity because I didn’t think eating a lot of sand would be fun. But my partner did it and had a great time!
I didn’t think the campsite would be so big. And when I say “tent,” I mean more like wooden buildings than actual tents. Since you’re in the desert, you shouldn’t expect it to have the same amenities as a standard hotel room. We had to share a bathroom, and there were no mirrors in the rooms. The tents are set up in an excellent horseshoe shape around the main arena.

Enjoy BBQ with Some Entertainment Shows
There are also many salads, such as potato salad, tabouli, baba ghanoush, and fruit salad, so vegetarians will be just as happy as meat-eaters. We had a few choices for meat, like Shish Tawook and spiced grilled chicken. You could also choose beef or fish. If you wanted something more substantial to drink with your barbecue, they also sold alcoholic drinks. What would an Arabic desert safari be without some shisha pipe smoking? The following day, after a delicious gourmet breakfast, we left our overnight desert safari to return to our hotel in Dubai.
