No vacation in the Arabian Peninsula or short visit to the UAE would be complete without going on a desert safari. If you are looking for a great adventure, do not miss driving over the sand dunes and crossing over the impressive landscape.
There are various tourism companies in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah that offer different Desert Safaris packages for any budget, from standard tours to tailor made offers. It is your choice when and how you would like to explore the secrets of the desert and whether you want to be more adventurous or to enjoy lunch or dinner as part of your Arabian Desert experience. There is for sure an option for everyone, you just have to check the options.
Morning safaris are the perfect choice if you are looking for adventure, you are in a rush and you are mostly interested in dune bashing and desert camps visiting, where you can try Quad biking, sand skiing or go on camel rides. This is particularly recommended for young travelers and not the best option for families with little children.
Evening safaris options are the most complex packages, usually including dune driving and dune bashing, various stops that allow you to take amazing photos of the sunset in the desert, camel rides, camel farm visiting, belly dance and traditional costumes shows around the campfire, henna painting, going to shisha bars, enjoying traditional Arabic coffee and dates and even adding a picnic lunch option. This is a great choice if you are not in a hurry and is also a very family-friendly option, with great activities even for children.
Dining in the desert is perfect for the ones who are not interested in sports, for elderly people and for persons that have a medical problem that does not allow them to go dune bashing. If you choose to go just for dinner, you will be directly taken to the desert camp site to enjoy Arabic coffee and dates and have a barbeque buffet dinner by the campfire. The dining option can be added to evening safaris as well or it can be chosen just by itself.
In UAE, overnight desert safaris are also available, for groups of 6 or more people, which include everything that is included in the other types of safaris and also the chance to experience the night in the desert, by staying overnight in the camp and watching the stars. Sleeping bags and blankets are also provided, as well as breakfast in the morning.
Most of the options of desert safaris include pick up and drop off at the hotel, as well as unlimited water, soft drinks, tea and coffee during the entire journey.
Also, Desert Safaris UAE have great offers for large groups, for example cruise lines, handling everything from the meet and assist service to transfers to and from the port.
If you feel that none of the already existing packages suits your needs or interests, travel consultants will assist you and design special options taking in consideration your personal preference and budget, in order to make sure every client is satisfied and has the best possible experience in the Arabian Desert.
