These days Dubai might be better known for its jaw-dropping skylines and lavish attractions, but its golden desert remains as unmissable as ever. Here's how to make the most of your safari visit.
With gazelles, wildcats, monitor lizards to be seen, the Dubai desert can match any savannah for wildlife sightings. Try a falconry experience for the ultimate in animal close-ups.
Camel rides make for a great hands-on Dubai Desert Tour. Most desert safaris include a short ride, but you can definitely opt for a tour with extended riding time.
Budget safaris (meals included) are available, but it's worth it to spend a little more if possible. You'll get authentic, local cuisine and hospitality that makes you feel like a VIP.
Thrill-seekers are spoilt for choice with the dune-bashing, quad-biking, sand-skiing, and dune-buggy rides offered on various safari tours. Not for the faint-hearted!
Can't handle the heat? Experience the desert by night. The evening tours offer breathtaking beauty and a unique stargazing experience.
With Dubai's rapid expansion, the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve was founded to protect the natural landscape and endemic wildlife from overspill. It is located in the southeastern corner of the Emirate of Dubai and covers 87 squared miles of land. Some safaris are allowed to take you out to these pristine dunes.
Dubai summer temperatures average at 106ºF (41ºC), and often get a lot higher than that. Temperatures are more comfortable between December and March, but you might have to contend with irregular spurts of rain.
In some places it's possible to camp, but unless you're extremely experienced, we wouldn't recommend it without being accompanied by a knowledgeable guide. Fortunately, there are several overnight camping safaris available.
What can you really expect on a safari tour? More than you may realize! This is your chance to drive over dunes and participate in a variety of traditional desert activities: camel riding, sandboarding, trying shisha, authentic cuisine, henna tattoos, and local entertainment.

What People Are Saying About Dubai
Fantastic from beginning to end! Driver was brilliant, so accommodating and such a pleasant man. The activities were great value for money, to say we left the hotel at 3pm, did not arrive back until approx. 9.30pm, went dune bashing, sand boarding, camel riding, falcon experience plus henna painting and copious amounts of food and soft drinks. Bar was available too where alcohol could be purchased if you wished. All for £60, what a bargain! Would most definitely recommend!!!
The pick-up was done on time and the tour & safari were amazing. We appreciated the belly and tanoura dance and also the buffet dinner. City tour guide did a good job and was always looking for us. Overall very good experience.
An unforgettable experience. It is not known what is better, driving on the dunes, sunset or riding camels ... worth every penny!
Our driver was fantastic. He made the trip enjoyable in every way. The food and service was great...Thank you for this memorable experience...
Only downside first, spent approx 1hr20mins collecting other passengers, but once we started the city tour was excellent, very knowledgeable guide. Pointed out many of the major features with free time in the Gold Souk. If you want gold, so much choice! Dropped back at our hotel then collected in 4x4 for dune bashing. Very good driver with a stop for sand boarding. Then onto a desert camp, well organised with welcome Arabic coffee and sweets. Meal was surprisingly good, and although estimate 2500 people, there were 3 separate serving areas and not long queues. Would recommend to all except pregnant or bad backs.
