Desert Safari – Dubai
Hello Everyone! Happy New Year to all of you who are reading this. I’m back with another post, it’s about my deserty Dubai escapade. Its very befitting though did you see the fireworks at Burj Khalifa?!?! ZOMG… Emirates lowered their airfare by 30-40% & so did the hotels (they really wanted people to come this year), hence everyone & their moms were at Dubai for the new years eve. My Instagram feed was flooded with people posting from Dubai the pics of the Dubai skyline lit with fireworks. Kinda felt like I choose a wrong time to visit, anyways there is always tomorrow, maybe next year I will be posting pics of Dubai skyline all lit with fireworks wink winkon new years eve.
Alright enough about the new year, thank god this dreaded 2016 ended. If you’re ever in Dubai you really have to go on the Desert Safari, Your experience is incomplete without visiting the orange-y dunes. The desert safari you can book online or through your hotel, you should ask at the front desk they often have deals. A 4×4 comes to pick you up around noon & then you’re taken to the middle of a desert where you’re entertained & various performances await you-fire show, belly dance, fireworks & authentic Emirati cuisine. The ride includes 20 mins across the desert- imagine being in a speed boat but instead of water there is sand & instead of speed boat there is a 4×4. SO make sure you hold on tight to those pipes they installed to keep you steady, don’t grab those passenger assist handles as they might come off & the driver might not really like it.
You also get to drive ATVs & Camels if that’s your thing. There are also Henna parlors at the venue so that right there is one more thing to look forward to when you’re at the desert safari.
