What is a Dubai Desert Safari?

The Desert Safari is a journey through the wilderness of red dunes of Dubai in the comfort of 4×4 Land cruisers. While the temperature could be soaring outside, inside these monster vehicles, it is enviably cool. A fully guided excursion, this one is not for the faint-hearted as more than 75% of the safari goes through the red dunes, some of which are steep or slopey, up or down. Dubai’s desert safari is paused intermittently for certain dune-based activities like sandboarding, camel sighting, and sunset watching. It all ends in a Bedouin-style campsite where delicious dinner is served, accompanied by local Tanoura and belly dance performances.
There are 3 options you may consider while making your Dubai desert safari booking with Oasis Palm Tourism for an evening of this legendary and famous adventure activity.

Premium Safari

This is an all-inclusive package. It starts with our 4×4 land cruiser arriving at your doorstep to pick you and your family up for a long red-bus type drive to the “meeting point.” This journey takes you through some of the landmarks of Dubai City, and your tour guide-cum-driver will be more than happy to oblige you with many interesting details of these landmarks. Once you arrive at the “meeting point,” you will find many vehicles going in a typical line formation. Watch out! Hold your breath and reach out to grab those handrails as your 4×4 will go through the SINE-CURVE of dunes, going a steep down to climbing uphill, all the while the red sand flying around you in a happy shower and sometimes making a wave-like splash against your vehicle. This journey proceeds to the horizon, where the sun finally sets on the golden dunes unfolding a mesmerizing view. This is when time stops. Cameras click away nonstop to capture this beautiful serenity. The Dubai safari then heads to a rustic Bedouin camp that has everything awaiting to give you a peek into what it feels like to live in the company of the desert, its flora, and its fauna! We have created little corners inside the camp for you to heighten your desert experience. Including henna tattooing, hubbly-bubbly to smoke away your exhilarating but tiring dune bashing moments, and also watch the exotic traditional Belly Dancing and Tanoura dancing. These, along with the full course BBQ buffet dinner, will take you to Aladdinsque land.
The premium package includes a drop back to your doorstep again in the same 4×4 land cruiser!

Budget Safari

There is a budget one for every guest as far as our offering is concerned. There could be a situation when you may decide to have the same fun minus a full course meal. This is where our “Budget Desert Safari” comes in, where fun certainly is not on a “budget”! The only difference is that you, as our guest, shall take a drive in our luxurious van to the “meeting place”. Once there, you will be transferred to a waiting 4×4 land cruiser for your onward date with the sands of Dubai. It is the same fun, albeit at a lesser budget. After the fun, you shall be dropped off at your doorstep by the same luxury van.

Self-drive Safari

If you have your own vehicle to reach our “meeting place, ” you can drive the safari price further away. We shall await your vehicle to arrive at our meeting place (we promise to share the exact location through Google Map) and transfer you to the awaiting safari 4×4 land cruiser after your arrival. Your fun experience begins from that point on. Once you have awash yourself with all the dune bashing, sandboarding, and sunset viewing activities, we will take you to the campsite. After all campsite activities are done, shall drop you at your own vehicle point in which you came.

The Experience Dubai Desert Safari

Your experience of Desert Safari begins when our 4×4 land cruiser reaches your doorstep to pick you up. The journey to the Meeting Place takes you through the landmark towers, wide roads lined with well-curated flower beds, and famed parks. Your tour guide and the driver-vehicle shall also tell you little anecdotes and stories behind these famous landmarks. The journey is usually starting in mid-noon when you would find the highways and city roads typically free. Dubai, as a city, never stops or even pauses, and this dynamism is reflected in the traffic speed and mobility.

Thrilling Dune Bashing

Desert is a unique gift to humankind. Although it looks barren, it has vast flora and fauna deep within its bosom. However, the starkest feature is Desert Dune that keeps getting formed due to shifting sands. No two dunes are the same. Your 4×4 vehicle goes through these dunes up and down, generating a unique, thrilling sensation. Your tour guide is well trained, and your 4×4 is made to dune driving specifications, so you have nothing to fear about. Just enjoy the ride, the splashing sands against your vehicle, and the time is sublimely merging with the horizon.

The Real Fun of Desert Safari

This drive is more commonly known as dune bashing. It has some side activities as well. Like waterboarding, you can even do sandboarding. Our 4×4 vehicles have sandboards, and your tour guide will take you to the right spot for sandboarding. After a few turns and drops, you shall be able to handle the sandboarding like a pro.

Sunset in the Desert

The dune bashing usually ends at sunset time. This is a glorious time, and no matter how many times one has seen this view, it always draws you in. The sand gets awash with the beautiful reddish/ golden hue creating a unique play of colors. As you have had a very high-energy activity, the sunset in the desert stops the moments for you so that you can get your breath back under the soft and caressing sun, which was harsh just a few moments before. Soak in this experience to the fullest.

While the sun bids adieu to you, the safari proceeds to a camel farm to give you an understanding of how important this animal is for the original Bedouin, and camel are still considered an integral part of United Arab Emirates culture. Camel is of immense use to the local Bedouin for its milk, its mobility on the sand, its loyalty to its master, its load-carrying capacity, and for being such a good sport.

The best desert safari Dubai experience is incomplete without enjoying our excellent hospitality. Safari drivers will drive to a rustic but fully equipped camp that has plenty of activities. It is a fully secured place, and the professional staff will serve with cool drinks upon your arrival, and then you may head out for either high adrenalin quad bike riding (separately priced) or get a henna tattoo free of cost. You may also enjoy the hubbly-bubbly, a local tradition, or take selfies with free supplied local dresses for males and females. You will then enjoy our BBQ buffet dinner while watching the thrilling Tanaoura and belly dances. Both are highly popular and unique to Arab culture. Book with us and enjoy the thrill and fun of safari with an ISO Certified best desert safari company in Dubai.

When you head back, you know that you had a unique experience of adventure, culture, and food.

FAQs Desert Safari

Your pick-up location depends on which package you have booked. For Premium Desert Safari booking, we will pick you up from the comforts of your doorsteps, provided it is Dubai or Sharjah. For Budget Desert Safari, we have pick-up points in Deira City Center and Sahara Center Mall in Sharjah. And as for Self-Drive Safari, you must directly come to our designated meeting point and time.
The camp is located in the famous red dunes of the Al Awir Desert. Our representative will send you the complete location and contact information upon your confirmation of the booking.
Well, the desert is the place where you need to wear something comfortable rather than dressy. Wear plenty of sunscreen lotion and take something along. Eyeshades to avoid direct sunlight on your eyes will definitely help. It became cold quickly, and we advise you to always take some woolies with you, especially during winter. Your footwear should be open-toed and light. Tight jeans etc., could become overbearing; hence wear something that is knee-length.
Of course, we offer discounts and deals for corporate events and group bookings. Please inquire directly, and we will gladly assist you with our best offers.
The main concern for our pregnant guests is that the dune bashing can be rigorous and bumpy. Hence it becomes more stressful for the pregnant woman. However, we can best recommend hiring a private 4×4 Land Cruiser for the Desert Safari Experience as we can tone down the dune bashing according to your liking, or you may skip the dune bashing. We will drop you off at the camp first, and your family and friends will not miss out on the safari and enjoy the full itinerary. Book accordingly at your discretion.
We want to remind you that we do not take any liability for any incident during the desert safari trip, even if you book a private 4×4 for the safari. Your doctor’s advice is the best way out for these trips.
To experience the beautiful Arabian Desert and participate in one of the most heart-racing moments you can have in Dubai is an experience most sought after. However, not everyone is suitable and can endure the dune bashing experience. We do not recommend dune bashing to senior citizens, pregnant women and infants (below 3 years old), people with back and heart problems, and wheelchair users. We strongly suggest hiring an exclusive 4×4 Land Cruiser for your Desert Safari Experience. Please inquire directly, and our representative will help you cater to your needs accordingly.
Quad bike facilities and VIP seating are available in the camp directly, and you may book them accordingly on site. These are not included in the safari pricing.
The average price per person for a desert safari in Dubai ranges from 100 AED to 600 AED depending on the season, and there is no fixed price. Most tour operators offer different prices as per their service and itinerary.  Usually, on weekdays it is then the weekends.

Our desert camp is equipped with a dainty mini bar where you can choose and purchase among the selection of alcoholic drinks and liquors available. Would you please drink responsibly?

Due to the unfortunate pandemic that has hindered everyone globally, we strictly adhere to DHA and RTA operation guidelines. The two-meter social distancing rule is strictly applied from the time of pick-up, during the safari dune bashing, and up until you reach the desert camp in the evening. The land cruisers strictly allow only 6 passengers; therefore, only 5 passengers and 1 licensed safari guide per trip are accommodated. A hefty fine applies to anyone who will be guilty of non-compliance. Therefore, we must follow and keep ourselves safe and everyone around us throughout the excursion.

To guarantee your seats, you may book well in advance from the desired date of your trip, especially during the peak tourist seasons from October to March, as seats may be limited during this period. However, you may still book a few days beforehand or even the same day as long as there are available seats to accommodate.
There are absolutely no hidden costs with the trip. You will start and end the trip at the same price from the time of booking. However, if you wish to participate in the desert camp, optional activities will cost additional expenses such as dune buggies, extended camel ride, tableside shisha, or mini bar consumption.
You may complete the payment using our hassle-free, secure online payment platform or a direct bank transfer. If you have difficulties securing both, don’t hesitate to contact our representatives through our live chat or call anytime at +971 4 2959948.

After a long time, we have enjoyed our day off with my friends. We decided to go for Desert Safari and booked it online with Oasis Palm Tourism. We were picked up from our location by our Tour Guide Mr. Amjad on Land Cruiser Car. Trust me, guys, we had so much fun on our way to the desert, and I must say that Dune Bashing for almost 25 minutes was amazing. After the Dune Bashing, we went to the Desert Camp enjoyed the Camel Ride. It was a short one thou it is still ok. Our girl gang went straight to try Henna Tattoo and took pictures wearing the traditional Abaya. We were served a welcome drink of Arabic tea. We enjoyed the Barbecue Buffet Dinner while the Fire Show, Tanoura Dance Show, and Belly Dance were going on. Overall it was an outstanding experience. Our tour guide Mr. Amjad was very professional and helpful. I hope my review will let your managers know that you are doing an excellent job.
