Desert Safari Rides – What are they?

In Dubai, one of the most popular activities, or should I say trips during the day are the desert rides. These activities gained so much popularity among the visitors and some travelers even come all the way across just to enjoy the beautiful moments of the desert rides. Some people just like to enjoy the moment worth remembering while others are interested in getting a glimpse of how Bedouin life was like before the large city became a hot spot for tourism.

There’s no doubt that deserts are extremely exciting, intriguing and tons of fun. And, to be honest, not everyone had the chance to visit one before. The ability to relax and take a look at an ecosystem that doesn’t exist in your country is just a few of the reasons why so many people want to visit a desert. However, not many people know what they should be expecting from one when they make their booking for a Desert Safari Dubai trip. That’s why we’re here to provide a few tips!

What should I be expecting from a Desert Safari Ride?

Although the moment feels really adventurous and exciting, some visitors might feel a bit scared or intimidated from the ride itself. We’re here to ensure you that there’s nothing to be afraid of since all of the drivers are experienced and have been doing this for a very long time. It will feel like you’re literally “flying over” the dunes while being in the 4×4 vehicle but trust me, after a few minutes it will start to feel like you are flying far up in the clouds.

Usually, the booking process is fairly easy and almost every hotel in Dubai has already established some kind of partnership with companies that offer such rides through the dunes. A simple, few-words-long google search will give you all the needed results from the local options available at the moment. Most of the companies will probably pick you up from the doorstep of your hotel. This will usually cost a bit more but it shouldn’t be too much. After a quick ride, all of the participants will come near the desert where they group up and make a small break until the drivers make the required vehicle checks. This is done to ensure maximum safety and performance. Upon arriving at the Bedouin camp you can choose to do whatever you want from a big variety of fun activities such as riding camels, smoking hookah or even trying on the national United Arab Emirates national dress. It’s up to you!
