There are few places in the world that offer such a diverse experience as the desert. A visit to the Middle East is guaranteed to provide you with an experience that will stay with you for a lifetime.
Whether you wish to visit the UAE or Saudi Arabia, there is simply no better place on earth where you can go on a desert safari, get the best night’s sleep and see the sun rise or set over spectacular scenery.
When planning your desert safari, there are many things that you should take into consideration. The first thing is the location of where you wish to go.
Dubai is the most popular destination, but you will find that there are many other destinations available, including Egypt, Jordan and Morocco.
You will also have to consider how long you wish to spend in Dubai on your desert safari. There are two main options, one is a two-day excursion and the other is a three-day journey.
If you are planning to spend the night in Dubai, you will have to take this into account when planning your trip. You can choose to ride the Camel Ride in VIP Desert Safari Dubai or take a trip on a camel taxi to get to the different destinations.
Other attractions include the Al Hajar Mountains, the Dubai Marina, Burj Al Arab Hotel and the Madinat Jumeirah. When visiting the Madinat you will want to visit the Dubai Museum and Gardens.
This is a showcase of some of the finest examples of Arabic art. It is also the home of the worlds largest exhibition of oriental art. The gardens are an attraction for any night and you can enjoy the evening garden party with drinks and snacks in the garden before heading to the Madinat Jumeirah Hotel.
A ride on a camel is a very memorable experience and is a fantastic chance to see the fabulous natural setting of Dubai. Most of the camel rides occur in Al Hajar Mountains and you can expect to be seated in a comfortable seat and allow the camel to lead you through the landscape.
They will pass through small villages and once you have passed the villages you will be led into the desert where you will be able to sit comfortably while the camel leads you into the oasis. The only precaution is to be sure that you have permission to enter the area.
Once in the oasis you will be lead through the rocky areas where the waves crashing against the rocks of the Al Hajar Mountains can be felt. At the end of the day you will be led into the camp where you will be able to relax and enjoy the view from the campfire.
There is camping available at most of the campsites but if they are full you can always hire a camel. One night only is available in the desert, so make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
You can experience the VIP desert Safari in Dubai by taking a bus tour from the Burj ul Arab Hotel to the Al Hajar Mountains. This tour takes around two and a half hours so plan accordingly. The first stop will be the Ghaziabad area where you can visit the limestone villages.
You will then take a short ride to the Al Hajar Mountains and see some stunning sand dunes. From here you can continue on to Jumeirah, where you will witness the magnificent natural setting of the coral reefs. You will then return to Burj ul Arab Hotel, where you can experience the VIP treatment and take a stroll through the Gold Souk before returning to your hotel.
If you are interested in experiencing the thrill and excitement that come with touring through the area yourself then one of the most popular tours is the Al Hajar Eye Exam Tour. You will be taken on a three-hour tour of the area and will get to drive through the souks, experience traditional Bedouin villages and learn how the Bedouins earn their money.
You will also take a walk through the desert during the tour which allows you to see many of the local birds and insects. This tour is available for adults and children and it is well worth booking in advance as this tour fills up fast.
