Dubai’s desert landscape is nothing like you’ve ever seen
Looking out over the vast and empty desert landscape, it’s easy to see why so many photographers are drawn to this place. There is something otherworldly about the way the sun sets over the sand dunes, creating a soft and glowing light. And at night, when the sky is clear, you can see an endless sea of stars. It’s truly a magical place.
Captain Dunes tip: Bring your tripod for a steady long exposure shot of Dubai’s magnificent night sky. Who knows, you might even catch a shooting star!
Get to choose your own adventure
Welcome to the vast and thrilling desert! There’s so much to do here, you’ll be having the time of your life in no time. First up, hop on a 4×4 car and experience the exhilarating thrill of dune bashing! You’ll have to keep your balance as you go up and down steep sand dunes in this heart-pounding activity. Next, try your hand at sand boarding. Sliding down a tall slope of sand will test your balance and coordination – and might even result in a funny holiday video. There are also optional activities like quad biking, horseback riding, and camel riding available for those who want to explore even more. So come on in and start your adventure today!
If you’re looking for an adrenaline-pumping adventure, then quad biking is for you. You can zip across the desert like a professional racer on one of these four-wheeler bikes. If you’re looking for a more relaxed activity, then horseback riding or camel riding may be more your speed. With a guide leading the way, you can explore the tour grounds at your own pace. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to take home some great memories and photos.
Arabian culture and art are rich and ancient
You’ll be taken to a Bedouin camp for entertainment and dinner as the night falls. You’ll find Arabian culture hundreds of years old, vibrant, and mesmerizing. You can see talented young women dancing belly with snake-like hips and spinning their skirts in a folkloric dance called Tanoura. Fire-breathing locals also take to the stage to show their mastery of this element.
You can also get temporary tattoos made of henna while you are there. This is a reddish brown ink that is used to create tattoos on the skin. You can choose from a variety of designs, or make your own. The art will last for several days before it fades.
Enjoy unlimited BBQ dinner buffet and dine like a King
Two of the most important elements of Arabian cuisine are spice and meat. You’ll see them heaped at desert safari dinner buffets. Open-fire grills can be found at campsites, where you will find all types of barbecued meats being prepared. You can find plates full of fresh fruits, cut into bite-sized pieces for you to enjoy while a cultural performance is being staged. After a day of adventure, this buffet of Arabian delights will be a great way to end your day. Enjoy a cup or two of traditional Arabian coffee with sweets to end your meal. Or, you can opt for a shisha as a way to soothe your stomach after a day of adventure and fun under the sun.
Rare wildlife – A rare glimpse once in a lifetime
During your desert safari, you will get to meet the UAE’s national bird the falcon. The UAE’s traditional sport of falconry is the training of falcons. Since 2016, UNESCO has included falconry in their list as an intangible cultural heritage. Falcons were originally used for hunting, but they are now being trained for cultural and sporting purposes. Falconers take their falcons on desert safaris to capture selfies with them.
You can also find other local fauna throughout the desert. You should also keep an eye out to see the Arabian Oryx, meerkats appearing from small areas of land, owls and diverse flocks. Avoid close contact with desert animals.
