Smoking is banned:  Similar to food, smoking is also banned in public during this month. You should also take care to not chew gum as well while out in the public.

Dress appropriately: It is important that you respect the importance of Ramadan as a tourist and hence it is necessary to dress in a manner that covers your knees and shoulders while in public.

Consumption of Alcohol: Although bars stay open once the sun goes down and the fast is broken, they will tend to be quieter and less crowded.

Beware of the heat: The temperatures in Dubai tend to be on the higher side during summer and it is essential that you take care of yourself with sunscreen and apt clothing. So pack wisely!

If you are planning a trip to UAE, the desert safari is bound to be on the top of your list for things to do in Dubai. Wondering what the hype is about? Worry no more, this write-up will take you on a descriptive journey about the desert Safari and help you understand why this is one of the top Dubai Tourist Attractions.

The Beginning

Most desert Safaris offer a pick up from your point of residence for convenience’s sake. If not, you will meet your guide at a pre-designated point and venture on the journey. The grand 4×4 vehicle that is used for your journey can be anything from a Jeep to a Land cruiser based on the type of desert safari you have opted for. Make sure you ask the driver to give you a background on the history and culture of the Bedouin culture before you hit the sands. Once the vehicle reaches the outskirts of the desert, the driver will deflate the tires and prepare the car for its full potential in terms of power. From here, your adrenaline-filled journey begins!

The Drive to the camp

Although the camp is equally scintillating, the drive is probably the best part of the desert safari. These expert drivers take your car through extreme heights, vertical slopes and through huge dunes of sand en-route the camp.

The sights: Desert Flora & Fauna

As you cruise through the sand dunes, you will see the endless, vast desert stretch to the horizon which is definite to leave you adrift. Look closely to see the scares but existing desert vegetation in forms such as cacti. These plants are truly a sight to see. They grow in extreme water-deficient conditions and some even flowers despite the hot desert temperature. The deserts also have plenty of wildlife in the form of snakes, raccoons, scorpions, & lizards. Although camels find a home in the desert, it is rare to spot them roaming wild in the desert.

If you have opted for the sunrise or sunset Safari, the drive will stop at a good viewpoint to capture the best possible views of the sun setting into the desert horizon. The golden hour is simply dazzling in the desert with the rays making every grain of sand in the land glow bright. After you have taken enough photographs for your liking, the ride will continue to the camp.

Camel Riding

An animal that is probably an icon of the desert, camels are naturally capable of going without water for long periods and hence can survive easily in the deserts.

The camp

The camp will feel like a wild contrast to the journey as it is as exquisite as an oasis in the middle of the desert. With tents built huddled together and a large center carpeting that acts as a stage, the camp is tiny heaven in the middle of the desert. While you are here, you can also try getting a henna tattoo from local women who are extremely talented. A core part of the Arab culture, henna is symbolic of auspiciousness and wellness.

Live Entertainment

A major attraction of the safari is the live entertainment performed by experts. The camp is oriented towards the stage set in the center and the performer displays his/her talents here. You can witness a grand show of belly dancing to Arab music followed by the traditional dance Tanoura performed on stage. Combined with the music, the cold desert breeze, and ambiance, this is definitely a night not to miss!
