A visit to the desert isn’t as peaceful as you’d think, at least not the desolate Arabian Desert. The easiest way to get at the Arabian dunes outside the city is only by the four-wheel-drive safari vehicle. The tour is incredibly popular in UAE, but your enjoyment will only heightens if you are ready to take on the 5 most exciting activities you shouldn’t miss in the Arabian desert safari:
1) Get on a safari 4X4 wheel drive for some dune bashing
An experienced safari drivers will take you through the exciting desert sand dunes to experience the roller coaster thrilling dune bashing.
2) Camwhoring opportunities in the spectacular desert
After the magnificent dune bashing, will stop for photo for snap shots in the desert. Beware if you are wearing slippers, you may lose your slippers or belongings in the sandy terrain. Trust me, if you drop anything i.e. keys or coins, it is very unlikely for you to find it back again! haha
3) Camel Riding (Beware of MERs)
After the magnificent dune bashing, will stop for photo-stops and get some snap shots in the desert. The tour will then continue and drive to the campsite with more exciting activities awaits for you. With traditional Arabic tents, furnished with carpets and pillows, or experience a ride on the camel, I promise you, this will be an adventure of a lifetime! 🙂
4) Challenge yourself for the adrenaline rush at the sand skiing on dunes
Along with the camel ride, the tour also provide thrilling sand skiing specially for adventure lovers. Sand skiing is kinda similar to snow skiing. Over at the desert, you can ski on the high sand dunes. Don’t worry, it is suitable for people of all ages. You do not need any experience to do this, so don’t think too much, just go for it. It will not hurt you in anyway. 🙂
