Five Things To Do To Make Your Dubai Desert Safari Better
Here are five things to do to make your Dubai Desert Safari better:
Embark on a desert safari
Ride the dunes
Take a backseat (unless you prefer to sit at the front of your four-wheeled drive) and hold on tight as an experienced driver whips you around the sand dunes, teetering on the edge of seemingly sheer drops, before dipping down sandy slopes and back up again. There are a couple of stops for sunset photos before you are safely whisked away to a traditional-style Bedouin camp, where an Arabic buffet dinner awaits.
Rev up for quad biking
An off-road adventure
Direct your taxi driver to Dubai’s most famous sand dune, Big Red, where you can hop on a quad bike and navigate the sandy landscape yourself. Available to hire by the half hour, the quad bikes are speedy and a helmet must be worn while riding. Follow the natural trail of the dunes, kicking sand in the face of your fellow riders as you hurtle and bounce over Dubai’s most iconic patch of sand.
Sandy slippery slides
This is one for true adrenaline-seekers. Strap this snowboard-like contraption to your feet and glide down the dunes just as you would at the slopes of Ski Dubai. While it is possible to rent a sand board at Big Red, there are a number of companies – such as Dream Explorer Dubai – that offer the full experience.
A royal desert experience
Hit the sand in style
Dubai-based luxe tour operators Evening Desert Safarioffers a number of desert safaris in Series 1 Landrovers through the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, where you can spot native wildlife and Arabian Oryx. For a truly exclusive treat, embark on the private astronomy tour, which will enlighten you on Arabian astronomy and bring you up-close-and-personal with nocturnal desert creatures (aided by a professional guide of course).
Stay overnight in the desert
An oasis of comfort
If camping is not really your thing, Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa in Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve takes glamping to another level, with luxury tented-style villas, each featuring its own private infinity pool.
It is a place for relaxation rather than risk-taking, with a number of chilled activities on offer, the highlight being the sunset camel rides over the rolling dunes, where you can enjoy a beverage as you take in the uninterrupted views. Ask for a villa overlooking one of the natural oases, where you can watch gazelles and Arabian Oryx stop in for a drink.
