OVERNIGHT DESERT SAFARI
Ask any seasoned traveler, and they will tell you that there is nothing like spending the night in the Arabian Desert. In the open, with no artificial lights or man-made structures to obscure the view, you’ll feel like you can see the entirety of the universe stretching out before you, with seemingly millions of stars and other heavenly bodies visible. Once experienced, it is something that you will remember for the rest of your life.
Our Overnight Desert Safari Tour gives you the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a night under the desert skies of Dubai. The tour starts when we pick you up from your hotel or residence and head out to the desert in one of our special safari vehicles. Upon arrival at the camp you will be treated to traditional refreshments in the form of fresh fruits and Arabic sweets.
Once you’ve settled in, you’ll enjoy a wide variety of fun activities such as Dune Bashing, sand skiing and sand boarding. There will also be photo opportunities to take your picture in traditional Arab garb. As the day quiets down and before night falls, you’ll get the unparalleled opportunity to ride a camel. Supper will consist of a barbecue dinner with a live belly dance performance to entertain you. Overnight coffee and tea will also be available. For your comfort, sleeping bags and blankets are provided. And in the morning, before we take you back to your residence or hotel, breakfast will be served along with tea and coffee.
There is no minimum people required for this package, even 1 person can do this. The best is if you have a group of 6 people in which you get a complete car for your group and don’t have to share it with other guests. Please note as the desert safari is an adventure activity we do not recommend children below 3 years, pregnant women and older adults especially with back problems. But we can arrange private car that can take you directly to the camp so that you may enjoy other activities in the camp. We also have car seats for children.
Our drivers are professional and licensed drivers and are trained in first aid. Our cars are fitted with roll cage to protect the occupants from being injured in an accident, particularly in the event of a roll-over in the desert which is very rare. Plus there are seat belts for every passenger. We use 4×4 Land Cruisers for our safari. Also from the moment you are in our cars you are insured. All our cars and the passengers are covered under insurance.
One must get a camera when going to a desert safari in Dubai as the views are breath-taking and awesome. Also one should wear comfortable clothes and avoid jewelry or expensive watch and cell phones as there is no signal at the camps. Do try the Arabic coffee at the camp and shake your belly with our belly dancer!
A very popular part of the desert safari. You get to ski from the highest dunes on a ski board, everyone can do it, as if you fall the soft sand is there to catch you. A thrilling experience and one that everyone should do a desert safari. We recommend you to book the red dune safari to enjoy sand-skiing the best.
Another popular activity in the desert is the camel trek. Enjoy the sunset while you are on the highest dune going towards the camp where you have drinks and dinner waiting for you.
QUAD BIKES/DUNE BUGGIES
We offer two types of quad bikes for both adults and children. Larger quad bikes are 350cc and more powerful and smaller ones are 150cc and recommended for children. Quad bikes can be driven in a designated area outside the camp and cannot be taken into the desert for safety reasons.
Dune buggies on the other hand can seat two people and can be taken into the desert. Our instructor will lead the convoy and you will be provided with safety gear and instructions before the ride. This option is recommended for the thrill-seekers.
