The Arabian Desert is one of the most prominent and well-known tourist destinations in the Middle East. Its beauty and tranquility attract hordes of domestic and international tourists every year. So, if you are looking for a getaway from modern-age vehicles and to explore this wonderful location, then this trip may be the solution. This Dubai night safari will pick you up from your accommodation in the city of Dubai and take you to Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve to explore the regional wildlife. Travelling in a luxurious Mercedes or Land Rover SUV will ensure ultimate luxury and convenience. The comfort of a drop-off at the end of the tour is also provided to you.
This Dubai night desert safari begins in the evening when you are picked up from your accommodation in the metropolis. Hop into a minivan and let the driver take you to the activity base camp. This air-conditioned automobile adds significantly to the comfort factor of this jaunt. The journey will be accompanied by some enchanting views of the local landscape. You will also get to witness a mesmerising sunset as you travel towards your destination. After driving for about an hour, you will reach an oasis inside a private property, owned by a local royal family. On reaching here, hop out of the minivan and meet the guide who will accompany you on the safari. After the meet and greet, board a lavish Mercedes G-Class SUV or a vintage Land Rover from the 1950s.
These vehicles are designed and well-equipped to provide you with a fun-filled and comfortable experience. With an expert guide at the steering wheel, head to the surrounding desert to witness the nocturnal fauna found in this part of the world. A Dubai night desert luxury safari is perfect to catch a sight of the animals that come out after the sun sets. Deserts have a distinct set of flora and fauna that they support, and many species of animals are endemic to these landforms. At the end of this luxurious journey, reach Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, which is home to a number of mammals, reptiles and arthropods.
Switch on your torches as your expert guide takes you to the best spots in the reserve to see these animals. On a good day, you may get a glimpse of Arabian red foxes or a sand fox. This reserve is also home to hares, gazelles and oryx. Ethiopian and Brandt hedgehogs can also be seen frolicking and searching for food in the area. Various species of bats, snakes, lizards, geckos and skinks make up the reptiles of the reserve. This night safari is the ideal venture to witness Arabian sand boas. Also known as Jayakar sand boas, these serpents spend most of the daytime buried under the sand, and they come out in the night to hunt. Night vision binoculars will be provided to you to allow you to see properly in darkness. Zoom in on these to catch a sight of even the smallest of creatures that may not be visible to the naked eye completely. Not just the nocturnal wildlife, but you might also be able to see some diurnal creatures as they come out to drink and feed.
After about 90 minutes of wildlife spotting, head back to the base camp from where this venture started. As you advance towards the destination, you might be able to see the animals that had previously escaped your attention. On reaching the camp, sit back and relax on plush, comfortable cushions. Light snacks and some drinks will be offered to you here. Savour these refreshments as the cold desert wind flows through your hair and refreshes you from within. An aromatic shisha or water pipe is also at your disposal at the establishment. Gaze at the stars as you talk about the wonderful and delightful experience you just had. After some leisure time and when you feel like you have revitalised, board the minivan to drive to your accommodation in Dubai.
