Desert safari by jeep in Dubai - tips & booking

Desert Safari by jeep is a popular excursion in Dubai and a fun way to experience the desert. The price often includes a barbecue buffet and entertainment - but it's the scenery that's the attraction [Updated 2022-10-18].

Desert Safari - in Dubai

Sure, desert safaris can be a bit of a tourist trap sometimes. But the thrilling, fun and titillating drive on the edges and slopes of the dunes makes it well worth the money. This is one of the best excursions you can do in Dubai.

Dune bashing can be so breathtaking that pregnant women and people with heart problems are actually not allowed to participate.

Desert safari - various excursions

Desert safaris are offered in many different designs and prices. You can go on morning tours, evening tours or choose to take an overnight excursion.

Often you go with a group, but it is also possible to book private tours. If you want to drive yourself, you can ride a buggy over the dunes. Expect prices from around SEK 500 and up.

BiljettshejkenOur tip! Book a desert safari before you travel. You'll have your ticket secured and it'll be cheaper than booking on the spot. If your travel plans change, you can cancel and get your money back. More information is available on the booking page.

Most popular are the evening excursions that end in a Bedouin camp with food and entertainment. The tour lasts about five hours and includes a barbecue buffet, belly dancing, sandboarding, henna tattooing and camel riding.

The food is usually really good, the entertainment is okay, but the really cool thing is to be under the stars in the desert when night falls.

Leave the barbecue and the music and take a walk around the camp. Experiencing the darkness and silence of the desert will be perhaps the greatest experience of the day.

STRONGLY recommend buying this experience! We went for a full day of four-wheeling and sand-bashing, and we got to try snowboarding in the Arabian desert! Jamal (our guide) picked us up outside the hotel on time and made sure we had time to do everything at our leisure with pictures and such. 10/10!!!
