Dubai desert safari

Posted by on December 15, 2013

We did several excursions in Dubai. The most popular Dubai excursion is the desert safari. Most tourists go to the desert for half or a full day. It even is possible to stay overnight. We went half day.

Several organizations in Dubai offer desert safaris. We booked at Travco Travel. First they bring you to a collection of shops in the desert. There it’s possible to buy some souvenirs and in the shops the owner tells you a cap is necessary in the desert. This isn’t true, it’s swindle and the price they ask is too high. It’s advised not to eat shortly before the desert safari. Then it starts and for about two hours the 4×4 jeeps race through the desert. First high speed over flat but a bumpy surface. Later over the ridges of the sand dunes. It feels like sitting for two hours in a rollercoaster. Halfway the trip stops shortly for a moment to take photos of the beautiful desert. Later again to offer the possibility to slide down the sand dunes. There also are short stops when someone needs to puke. Finally we arrived at a camp in the desert where we had buffet dinner, a belly dancer show and the possibility to sit on a camel. After dinner the jeep goes on low speed back to the highway and brings you back to the hotel. Wonderful day!
