If you are planning on visiting Dubai, you would not want to miss out on one of the most popular tourist activities which includes going on a journey through the amazing golden and sandy landscape that Dubai is well known for. Most tourists book their trip through the sandy dunes way ahead in advance and around the time that they are booking their flight.
You can opt for a morning or an evening desert safari depending on your preferences and schedule. However, it is important to keep in mind that the climate could be vastly different compared to the country you are coming from, therefore no matter which one you pick, you need to always be prepared before you set off. Here are a few tips for you to enjoy and make the most out of your journey:
1. Hydrate yourself
It is vital that you take a couple of water bottles and even a replenishing drink to hydrate yourself and keep your energy up. This tip is especially important if you opt to go in the morning instead of the evening. The temperature is considerably high during the daytime therefore in order to enjoy your trip without feeling dehydrated it is essential that you are prepared.
2. Protect your skin
If you are going on the tour during the day, even though you would be inside a vehicle most of the time, it is vital that you apply sun block for the times that you would be out of the vehicle such as when you reach the campsite. The sun’s rays in the area tend to be harsh and can give you serious sunburn. Also, do apply the sun block before you embark on the tour as you would not want to waste time by applying it during the time that you would be enjoying the desert safari Dubai.
3. Comfort is key
While you are in Dubai, you may have to adhere to the dress code that the locals abide by which include restriction of men wearing shorts in public. However, this would not apply when you are going on the tour. You should opt for loose and comfortable clothing and flip flops or sandals instead of socks and sneakers. Furthermore, if you are going during day, you would find that taking sunglasses would be very useful as you would not have to strain your eyes during the journey.
4. Take some money with you
Once you reach the campsite you may want to buy some snacks or buy some souvenirs to remember your fantastic ride through the plains of Dubai.
