Desert safari Dubai

Dubai Desert Safari - A day with family and friends

In the UAE I enjoyed the most is desert Safari. During winter this is the best option for an outing. It is one of the best outing options for UAE residents. For the tourist, it is a wonderful experience to spend an evening in the desert.
We went two times for Desert safari. once in December and after two years again in February. During December it was cold after sunset but this year when I went in February, it was much cold even at 4 pm in the desert.

There are different desert safari spots throughout the UAE. Desert safari Abu Dhabi, desert safari Dubai or desert safari Sharjah.
I personally could not enjoy the dune bashing as I have motion sickness but my family enjoyed a lot. Especially the kids above 3 years will feel more excited. But for pregnant women it is dangerous. So please if are pregnant skip the dune bashing. There are a lot more things to enjoy also.

Desert safari cost
Per head AED 70 to 150 average. During summer or desert safari deals online, you can get cheaper. Cost varies as per different travel agent and facilities.

Best time for Desert safari
Winter is the best time. From November to march. During summer it is too hot to be in the desert.
