Experience the marvel of Arabian desert by being part of a Dubai Safari. The Dubai safari is an excellent blend of both adventurous and cultural extravaganza that is sure to fascinate both the young and old. For those who like the adrenaline rush, dune bashing, quad biking, and sand skiing are the right choices which are sure to provide a once in a lifetime experience. For a more relaxed feel that is true to the culture and tradition of Dubai, you can try out henna painting or watch the magnificent belly dance while having a scrumptious barbecue dinner and drinks.
Dubai Safari usually starts from the late afternoon around 3-3:30pm and go way past midnight. You can even opt for a whole day safari where you get to spend a night in the desert.
The cost of the safari varies from AED 45 – AED 400 per person depending on the type of safari you opt for and the various other facilities provided. The cost of Dubai Safari usually depends on the following.
- Quality of the Safari: Dubai Safari falls under three broad categories depending on the quality of the facilities offered. The luxury safari camp like the Arabian adventures offers personalized safari service for tourists. The very good camps like the Atlanta tours offer medium range service with all necessary facilities. The cheap and smaller camps are for the budget conscious and are usually provided in groups.
- Transportation: Most of the Dubai safaris offer pick-up facilities from your place of residence to the camp. The type of transport that is used also affect the overall cost. If the travel agency transports the tourist by a shared bus, then the cost is likely to be 25% less than luxury transport like a limousine.
- Type and time of activities: The number of activities that are included in the package and the time taken for each also determines the cost. e.g; If dune bashing is done by experienced drivers, then the cost will be more. Similarly, the longer the duration of the ride the higher the cost.
