Reasons Why You Should Go On A Dubai Desert Safari

A desert is a place of mystery, romance, and — in the case of Dubai — spectacular luxury. There are several different ways to experience the desert in Dubai; however, one of the most unique and memorable experiences is a Dubai desert safari.

These excursions take visitors to some of the most remote parts of the Emirates and give them a chance to see its natural beauty.

A Dubai desert safari sounds like an adventurous activity, but it’s as scary as it seems. If you’ve never been on one before, here are 10 reasons why you should go on a new updated version of that activity.

You’ll get the best views of Dubai at night

The desert sun is hot, and it’s not exactly the most pleasant light to appreciate in the city at night. On a desert safari, you’ll have the opportunity to see the city in all its nighttime glory. 

While you’ll have to stay on the tour bus for most of the time, you’ll still get a chance to see the Burj Khalifa in all its glory. Going on a desert safari at night is very different compared to the daytime experience: it’s more romantic, and you can appreciate the architecture more.

It’s an opportunity to see Dubai in all its natural beauty

Apart from being a great place to see Dubai’s nighttime glory, a desert safari is also a great way to appreciate Dubai’s natural beauty. As you drive through the desert, you’ll be able to see how it looks in its natural state, far away from the city’s hustle and bustle.

Having driven through the desert in Dubai and Abu Dhabi many times, I know that it is an experience you should not miss out on. Deserts are generally very beautiful, and the UAE happens to have one of the most beautiful deserts in the world.

At Dubai Desert Safari you can go dune bashing

Dune bashing is when you drive your 4X4 vehicle at high speed across a series of dunes. It’s an activity that’s unique to the desert and is the perfect way to see all its natural beauty up close.

However, if you aren’t one for adventure, fret not: the guides will make sure that you stick to the easier routes. Dune bashing is made even more thrilling thanks to the desert winds.

They’re strong and can easily cause you to lose control of your vehicle if you’re going too fast, so you have to be careful. Dune bashing is one of the best ways to experience the desert in all its natural beauty.

Dubai Desert Safari is a great place to stargaze

If you’re interested in stargazing, then you have to go on a desert safari. There’s no better place to see the night sky than out in the desert. The desert’s very dry climate and lack of light pollution make it the perfect place to stargaze. You’ll get to see more stars in the desert than in any other place in Dubai. 

You can choose to go out on a night desert safari, which is a bit more expensive but well worth it if you’re interested in stargazing. The guides are knowledgeable and will be able to point out the major constellations and stars. 

If you want to make sure that you don’t miss out on any of the action, bring a blanket and a pair of binoculars. If you don’t have binoculars, you can ask the guide for help.

You’ll get to see the falaj (water channels) in action

The desert is not exactly the lushest of places, so water is scarce. For that reason, many of the desert’s settlements rely on falaj.

Falaj is an ancient water channel that has been used in the Middle East for thousands of years. The best place to see the falaj in action is at the Al Wad Resort and Spa. This is one of the most beautiful spots in Dubai.

You’ll be able to see the falaj in action and how they’re used to irrigate the desert. If you’re lucky, you might even get to see a flash flood. During the summer months, flash floods are common.

If you’re lucky, you might even get to see a water fight between the locals and the tourists.

Desert cuisine is something you should try once in your life

While you can always eat fancy food while in Dubai, you shouldn’t miss out on trying desert cuisine. As you go on the desert safari, you’ll stop at a local oasis, where you can sample some of the local delicacies.

Try the pancakes made from coarse-grained flour and stuffed with dates, cheese, and almonds; or the freshly baked bread known as showbiz. You can also try a tea made from herbs like mint and thyme.

If you’re up for something more adventurous, you can try roasted scorpions, camel meat, or Bedouin coffee. If you’re ever in Dubai, you should make sure that you try desert cuisine. It’s a very authentic way of experiencing the culture, and you’ll get to taste food that you won’t get to try anywhere else.

The experience is simply unforgettable

When you try to put everything that a desert safari entails into words, it’s very difficult. There are many different types of desert safaris, but they all have one thing in common: they’re unforgettable.

A desert safari is one of the most unique experiences you’ll ever have the chance to take part in, and it’s something that you should put on your bucket list. It’s a trip that you’ll cherish for the rest of your life, and you won’t regret going on it.

Going on a Dubai Desert Safari will give you a sense of pride and accomplishment

One of the best feelings in the world is when you have done something and you feel proud of your accomplishments. A desert safari is a perfect activity for individuals who are looking for a challenge and something to brag about to their friends and family.

It’s an experience that not many people get to do. It’s an activity that will test your mental and physical strength as you’ll be traveling to some of the most remote parts of the UAE. If you can complete the desert safari, it’ll give you a sense of pride and accomplishment, and you’ll have a great story to tell. Most importantly, it’ll be a memory that you can cherish for the rest of your life.
