A trip to Dubai for the very first time is incomplete without a Desert Safari experience. ISO 2008:9001 Certified Tours and Desert Safari Company Oasis Palm Dubai is a good place to start if you are looking for an adventurous safari in the desert of Dubai.
From their branded Safari vehicles and experienced drivers, they also own a camp in their name. You know you are in relatively safe hands as most desert safari tour companies outsource their vehicles.
Besides the general Dune bashing, dinner and belly dancing (Belly Dancing is not available during the Holy month of Ramadan), they also offer Quad biking. That is by far one of my favorite activities during Desert Safaris. Its fun, shows that you have a sense of adventure and it’s a unique sport to the desert – a must do!
The bikes, generally known as Quad Bikes are not included in package of their Safari. However, it is available on their camp site, if guests opt for it. It’s strictly for 18 years and above of age. For your safety info, each Quad Bike is equipped with a full roll cage, bucket seats and full safety harnesses.
Needless to mention, an additional payment is applicable. The ride usually lasts about 15 minutes for AED 120 but it depends on you to take it on rent for certain duration of time. Beware! It’s addictive.
I want to point out here that you have a Morning Desert Safari and an Overnight desert Safari as well.
The Morning Desert Dubai is perfect for the early birds who love to start exploring early in the am. The morning Safari takes you to witness pretty much the same things that a regular Desert Safari would, except you start real early, so you may get a glimpse of the rising sun and the scenic Dubai desert. If you are lucky, you may spot some animals on the way too, who start early as well!
In an Overnight Desert Safari, you will drive through the desert along Al Awir road (a famous path through the desert in Dubai). You have an overnight stay at a desert camp site, sleeping bags, blankets and a sunrise breakfast.
All the Safrais include:
