Desert Safaris

A city that emerged from the rolling dunes over decades, a visit to Dubai isn’t complete without a trip to the spectacular UAE desert. A classic desert safari experience usually involves some 4WD action up and down the undulating sand dunes for a thrill-a-minute ride complete with photogenic sunset, followed by a relaxed evening spent at a local desert camp where activities include sand boarding, camel riding and henna painting before a delicious barbecue dinner and live music and dance entertainment. Visitors can choose to deviate from the usual experience with options such as a sunrise trip out to Big Red, Dubai’s tallest sand dune, overnight stays in an authentic Bedouin camp, stargazing tours under a dark velvet sky, or a drive through a private conservation area in a vintage Jeep.
