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
This was a perfect day spent in the desert. Our driver Daniel was very friendly and nice, his driving skills are awesome. This was the best part of our Dubai trip!
We enjoyed every moment of the trip, like the driving in the dunes, playing in the sand, having dinner in the tent, riding the camel, watching the sun set and at the end a beautiful show in the tent.
Great guide, trip, bbq etc.... a really good day out that we thoroughly enjoyed.
That tour combines a lot of different activities and is definitely worth to do! It was easy booking on the web, perfectly organised with a pick-up from the hotel in Dubai. We took part as a family of four being well hosted by our driver. After a small trip into the desert we did a great dune ride in a 4WD car, stopped by sand dune boarding and watching the sun set which was a real experience. Finally we entered a desert camp with lot of fun as camel rides, Falcons, henna paints, Shisha, lots of tasty food and a show program including belly dancing. The trip ended with a nice final tour through the desert at night finally being moved back to the hotel. It was perfectly organised, a very friendly driver and lots of fun. We never felt unsafe.
Very good price performance relationship. The whole thing seemed a bit rushed though. We were back at around 9 o'clock.
