Every person who goes to Dubai wants to go on a desert safari Dubai which is one of the world’s most thrilling adventures. There are hundreds of operators and ways to book, and prices range from 55 AED to more than 300 AED. Before making a reservation for a desert safari, it is essential to have a clear understanding of everything included in the package, even if it is tempting to go with the one with the lowest price.
A quick look at the different price options for a Dubai Desert Safari and what they include
The cheapest option, which costs about 55 AED, is for guests to go to the designated pickup point on their own in a big bus. People go on desert safaris in 4×4 jeeps on the roadway near the desert, mostly Toyota Land Cruiser Prado. You’ll have to pay to get from your hotel to the starting point, and if you’re taking a big bus, you’ll have to wait until everyone else gets there.
The option that picks you up and drops you off at your hotel is a little more expensive but more convenient. There is no need to pay for a cab or take the subway to the operator’s office, which saves you money and time. In cheaper options, the pickup and trip to the desert are usually done in a van or bus to save money. You won’t get into a Land Cruiser/4×4 SUV until you get to the desert.
High-end options pick you up from your hotel in a 4×4 SUV. Some operators include a quad bike, which can save you 10–20 AED compared to buying it separately.
Hummer or Humvee is a tough SUV made for the US army (but has since been replaced). If you like cars, a ride in a Hummer will be much more memorable than a ride in a Prado, which is more common in UAE and doesn’t feel as luxurious.
Safaris are run in different places by different tour companies. The venue details are not publicly available. Most of the time, the cheapest operators do it in sand dunes close to the city that aren’t as hard.
Whenever possible, book directly with the operator.
I think that booking directly with the operator is easier. Rather than going through a third-party agent, it might be cheaper to deal with them directly.
Morning vs. Evening Safari:
Most tourists choose the evening safari because it is easier for them. Since more people sign up in the evening, it costs less. The same activity can be done in the morning, from 9 a.m. to noon, or early in the morning, from 4 a.m. to 9 a.m., but it will be a bit more expensive because fewer people will sign up. However, fewer people will be on an early morning or morning safari. If you go on an early morning safari, you will be able to see the sunrise and enjoy the desert more. But things like belly dancing, a BBQ dinner, henna tattoos, and other fun things won’t happen in the morning. There will be quad bikes for rent. If you don’t care about belly dancing and would go on a safari at sunrise instead of sunset or have other plans for the evening, you should go on a morning safari.
Can I drive the Prado or SUV?
No, in desert safari Dubai, visitors are not allowed to drive. Operators won’t let you. I told Dubai Tourism they should let it happen in a controlled setting. I hope they listen and do what they say. At the moment, guests have to settle for a quad bike ride.
Things you should know about ATV/Quad Riding on a Dubai Desert Safari.
When the operator gets to the desert, there will be a break (so that they can deflate the tires and get them ready for dune bashing and so that guests can take a break and refresh themselves). During this time, guests can ride a quad bike or do other fun things like ride a camel, take a picture in traditional dress, shop, or get a drink.
Some pricey desert safari packages include 20 minutes of quad biking, but most don’t include it and make you pay for it when you get there. A 220cc quad bike with more power can be bought for the same price. The 90cc one that costs the least isn’t enjoyable to ride. If you want more fun, you should try a quadbike with more power, which will cost more. For More Visit Dubai Desert Safari Group
