A desert safari in Dubai is an opportunity to see the Arabian Peninsula’s unforgettable landscape and hear about the nomadic people who once lived there. Although seeing the vast, otherworldly desert is definitely the highlight of the journey, you’ll also have a lot of fun on dune drives and trying adventure sports like sandboarding.
MORNING OR EVENING DESERT SAFARI?
A typical Dubai jeep safari itinerary will include activities such as fun desert sports, demonstrations of Arabic cooking, dancing, and possibly falconry, all of which will give you a taste of nomadic life in the desert. Safaris in the desert can take place either in the morning or in the evening. Morning and evening excursions can be customised to include anything from Arabic bread-making to Saluki dog racing to hot air ballooning. The lowest sun produces extraordinary light that makes the sand golden and rose-pink, making these the coolest times of the day as well as the most magical in the desert.
Morning desert safaris
A typical morning safari could include a camel ride, sandboarding, and dune-bashing, as well as photo opportunities and time spent spotting gazelles and Arabian oryx. If you’re low on time, a morning desert safari is ideal. Most morning desert safaris begin at 9 a.m. and last 2 to 3.5 hours, giving you time to do other things later in the day.
Evening desert safaris
Driving to a Bedouin-style camp, watching a mesmerising dance performance, stargazing, attempting henna painting, and eating Middle Eastern cuisine are all part of a typical evening safari. Evening desert safaris usually begin at 3 or 4 p.m. and offer the opportunity to see a spectacular desert sunset. Some even allow you to spend the night in the desert.
