Desert Safaris are the pinnacle of adventure and pleasure.
Even though Dubai as a city is known for its luxurious lifestyle and pompousness but in reality, there is much more to see beyond the high skyscrapers that reside there. Right outside the city, there is a land of sand which packs enthralling adventures and fun things to do.
Tourists are attracted to desert because of the beautiful landscape that it offers. You’re bound to fall in love with the sceneries that you are going to come across, even on your way to desert there are a number of scenic sights that are a delight to watch.
The Desert Adventures
Evening desert safari is the best way to witness the true charms of desert and understand the Bedouin culture. Desert does not require lush green grass or fancy buildings to attract tourists. The adventures that make up most of your desert safari are as follows:
High Sand Dunes
Some of the most thrilling adventures are the ones that take place on the sand dunes of Arabian Desert. Dune Bashing for instance, is the marvelous journey that keeps your heart rate high through the entire journey. In this session of mounting over the high dunes, the driver makes sudden turns in a 4X4 SUV. If you want to double-up the fun, you can simply sit in the front.
You’ll see the sand spreading all over the windshield of the car, as the driver smashes through the high dunes. One thing you have to be careful about while booking for the session of dune bashing is the tour operators. Not all the tour operators offer dune bashing, instead they take you on a dune driving trip because they believe the fragile ecosystem is damaged by the former.
Another adventure that holds high value in the eyes of Arabs is camel trekking Dubai. Camels were used as a means of transport in the old days and now, tourists are fascinated by the idea of climbing high on the back of these huge animals. Travel to the furthest corners of Arabian Desert while having a bumpy camel ride.
The best thing about dunes is that it gives you a lot to take back home. Keep your camera ever ready to take breath taking pictures of yourself with the sun.
In evening desert safari, if you’re lucky enough you are going to catch a glimpse of sun falling below the horizon. This is the moment when the sunset becomes a great layout for your pictures.
Learn about the culture of Bedouin people from them. Apart from the outdoor activities there goes an indoor entertainment in the Bedouin-style camps. Falconry is one of them, where you can witness the majestic Falcon hunt on its prey. Henna painting sessions are also available for the women of the family to enjoy.
At the end of your desert safari, a freshly prepared BBQ buffet is served to you. Sit and relax while the spectacular belly dancers put on a show as a live Arabic music goes on in the background. Be amazed by the professional dancers who keep up with the fast pace of Arabic music.
