You’ll be able to see why Dubai is known as the “city of wonders” when you join an overnight desert safari. It’s one of the best things to do in Dubai, and you’ll be blown away by the natural, wide open desert landscape that’s so different from the cityscape around it.
You can do a regular overnight desert safari in Dubai where you get to see the sunset and enjoy activities like camel riding, quad biking, dune bashing, and sand boarding, or you can go all out and spend the night in a tented camp with an Arabian style barbecue dinner and dance shows. You’ll be able to stay in your own Bedouin-style tent that comes with a Nawar (Bedouin) style bed, blankets, pillows, and even a bathroom inside the tent.
The great thing about this option is that you’ll be able to really relax and unwind in your own private tent, and just sit back as the sun goes down over the vast sand dunes around you. And when the lights go out, you’ll be able to really experience the magic of the Arabian desert as you star gaze and take in the stunning view.
There are also a few extra activities that you can choose to add to your tour if you want to spice it up a little, including a falcon experience where you get to interact with trained falcons and learn about their hunting skills. Or, if you’re feeling super adventurous, you can rise before the sun to do a hot air balloon ride over the desert. That’s a once in a lifetime opportunity that will truly leave you with a magical experience!
Obviously, the night-stay option will be a bit more expensive than the normal day trip, but it’s so worth it if you can spare the expense. It’s the most immersive and memorable option that you can do in Dubai, and it’ll really give you an idea of what it was like when Dubai was a small desert settlement!
Then, the next morning, you can wake up to a delicious Arabian breakfast and trek out on a sunrise camel ride in the heart of the desert. You’ll be able to spot Arabian oryx and gazelles on your wildlife drive before you head back to the city, and you’ll have a full, unforgettable desert experience that you’ll always remember!
