Tips to Enjoy the Dubai Desert Safri

Going for a Desert Safari Tour is one best things that you can do in Dubai. Whether you are here for work, business or pleasure, the desert safari is a 'must experience' adventure.

See how much fun we had when we went last Friday (Nov 18, 2011)

other 4WD's behind us --- it's dune bashing time!!!
Sand, sand, and more sand!!!
colorful sand packed in bottles --- sold as souvenirs
Persian rugs for sale!
Not satisfied with dune bashing inside a car? Rent a quad bike for an hour
Chillax! Enjoy! Share a Hubble bubble with friends --  more commonly known as Shisha
Free sweets! Quite confused why it's served before dinner though...
The buffet consisted of veg and non veg food. Good for me I eat both :)
there is also free henna for women
The night's main attraction --- a half naked, belly dancing woman and...
an incredibly balanced man who twirled for hundreds of times without  losing his footing, dancing the Tanoura
Here are some tips for you guys who are planning to book a desert safari tour:

- Do not eat for an hour or 2 before the dune bashing. If you do, then don't forget to bring a plastic bag in case you lose your lunch. Remember... dune bashing is quite similar to a roller coaster ride.

- Wear comfortable clothes. The most recommended outfit are t-shirts, capris, and slippers. You might also need to bring jackets if you go during the months of Dec to Feb.

- Once you arrive at the camp, grab a table and leave some unimportant stuff on it so others won't think it's unoccupied.

- If you arrive early, don't stay inside the camp. Bask is the sun and play with the sand. This way, you wont miss the camels when they come out for picture taking

- Bring some chips or snacks. Food is usually part of the tour packages but they serve food really late.

- If you want to try the shisha, sit in the shisha area before it gets too crowded. You wouldn't want to share spit with everyone else, do you?

- The belly dancer might pull you up to the stage. Be a good sport and dance your heart out. Believe me, you will only get a 'boo' if you don't dance.

- Last tip. No trip will be fun if you don't set your mood to enjoy. Just relax, eat, and laugh.  Leave your criticisms at home and treat your desert safari tour as a new experience. If you do that then it is guaranteed that you'll have fun.
