What is the Desert Safari Dubai Tour?

Desert safari tours are a very popular tourist activity in UAE, and in fact, currently, in 2024, it still ranks at no.2 spot, according to Tripadvisor. A desert safari tour is a mix of a lot of activities that combine action, adventure, and a relaxing experience all in one.

Let’s discuss some of the activities you can enjoy here. 

What Does Desert Safari in Dubai include?

As mentioned, the Desert Safari Dubai tour offers plenty of activities that suit everyone’s taste. Here is a complete list of them:

  • Dune Bashing

The most popular safari activity is dune bashing rides, which are the very essence of desert safari tours. People want to experience desert safari and admire the beauty they possess, and nothing can do that better than a dune-bashing tour.

There, an experienced driver takes you for a thrilling and invigorating ride in a 4×4 vehicle like Landcruiser or Prado, driving through the sand at high speed while you are seated at the back with a seat belt. By waving your hand outside the window, you will get to see the beauty of the desert and take pictures that are worth remembering. It is a kid-friendly ride and even your children can come along for the ride.

  • Quad Biking

Following the dune bashing, your new adventure begins with either Quad bikes or ATVs. They are 4-wheel motorbikes with strong engines, light suspension systems, and large tires for driving in the desert.

It is like dune bashing but even more thrilling and dangerous, as quad bikes are open vehicles that need to be driven with great caution to prevent accidents. You don’t need to panic if you are a novice; your tour guide will help you learn how to ride the quad bike in no time.

  • Sandboarding 

Next up is sandboarding; you might see from its name that it is similar to snowboarding but done in a completely different environment. You glide down from a tall sand dune (200m height) on a hard wooden board while trying to maintain your balance. It sure is an exciting and fun activity to enjoy that one must never miss here. 

  • Camel Riding 

As mentioned, desert safaris also offer cultural experiences one can enjoy in the desert, and camel riding is one such activity. Camels have been an integral part of Bedouin culture, and when riding on them, one can experience how the locals used to travel in the past on a slow and bumpy journey. 

  • Campsite Refreshment and Entertainment 

How can one come for the best desert safari Dubai tour and miss the entertainment shows and performances at the Bedouin campsite? After you are done with your safari activities, you go and relax at the campsite and energize your body by drinking water, tea, coffee, or shisha while enjoying amazing and tantalizing performances from locals on a slow musical rhythm.  

The most popular dance performances are Tanoura dance, Belly dance, and Fire shows that are sure to leave you breathless. Evening and Overnight safari packages offer campsite entertainment; bear that in mind. 

  • Delicious BBQ Dinner 

The desert safari tour also offers a range of BBQ and local dishes one can savor to fill one’s hungry appetite. These dishes include lamb chops, Kebabs on skewers, shawarmas, and several other delicacies. This range of dining options fills all the hunger you have gathered from the thrilling safari activities earlier.  

There are also vegetarian items available for those who don’t like eating meat or similar dishes.
