Luxury safari in Dubai

Luxury safari in Dubai

Dubai is the right destination if you aspire to experience what it’s like to live in the 21st-century city with glamorous hotels and restaurants, state-of-the-art facilities and be the object of the famous Middle Eastern hospitality. However, the Arab World is not only about astonishing coastal cities with skyscrapers and all luxurious facilities you can dream of. The Arab World is about the long-rooted history of the Bedouin, living in the desert. So, if you really want to delve into the Emirati culture, going on a safari in the deserts in Dubai is a must.


Dubai Sand Dunes

The first thing that will knock you off is the sand dunes themselves. The dunes are one of the most spectacular natural attractions of the world. Just like the sea, they are always moving and changing the colour. The dunes are the place where you’ll be able to see the most stunning views, sometimes so astounding you’ll think you are on a different planet, and take the most amazing photographs. It’s totally impossible to say which part of the day the dunes look more astonishing: the sunrise, the noon, the evening, the night, when the only sources of the light are the moon and stars. To see it all, you might want to stay in one of the luxury hotels in the UAE located out of the city, right in the heart of the desert.



For those who prefer things more active than dune watching, there’s a whole list of Dubai desert activities for any kind of personality:


Those who enjoy the speed can go on a ride in a 4x4 car or on a quad bike;


Those who admire feeling their body at its most can go sandboarding;


Those who want to feel the connection with the nature can go horse or camel riding;


Those who are into local crafts can try henna tattoo making.


However, if you want to experience something that is really intrinsical to the Bedouin life, you should see the falcon, the national bird of the UAE, and learn about the falconry, the art of training these amazing birds and the national sport of the Emirates. 

Luxury Dubai desert safari won’t be perfect without staying in the desert at least for one night. Of course, you don’t have to sleep in a tent worrying about all the creepy crawly things. It’s the 21st century, after all. You can spend a night in the desert and still stay in one of the most luxurious hotels, e.g. Al Maha or the Ritz-Carlton, to name but two, where you’ll be able to enjoy all the comforts of the modern life.
