  • Sunset

You can catch the most beautiful sunset of your life standing on the periphery of these sand dunes. Under the marmalade sky with your loved ones, with wind blowing from every end, it will be an unexplainable feeling.  Finally, you should grab a view of the sunrise as well, in case you take the overnight safari and wake up early enough to witness it. Out in the wild desert with no sign of civilization, you can feel calm and at peace.

You can stroll around or simply let the ambiance sink in. Silence could be your greatest friend in a moment like this. The sunset could be a poetic or a sacred experience for some.

  • Adventure Time

You can pick from a wide range of adventurous activities to do. To start with, dune bashing is a thrilling experience. Quad Biking can be a brilliant choice for sports enthusiasts that like to take control over the wheels.

Another activity you can try your hand at, is sand skiing. Generally, this is done in dunes as high as 200-300 meters. You will be able to feel your body glide down fast and the sand slip off underneath you. You do not need to have prior skills to attempt this and it can be a lot of fun. You will ultimately only fall on sand.

Next, you have an activity called the hot air balloon safari, giving you a panoramic view of the Arabian desert. The hot air balloon can hold up to 24 people at a time. You will not only be seeing the beautiful golden sky, but the desert and the wildlife from up above. You will indefinitely get an adrenaline rush. Last but not the least, you can also take a camel ride in the dunes.

 Belly dancers with flashy, shiny clothes and jewelry enter the space to entertain you with their dazzling performances for the night. A blend of traditional Arabic music, with swaying bodies and pure talent. The locals later present their folk dance, called “Tanoura”, a fire-breathing act accompanied with tricks that will impress you in seconds!

  • Barbecue Night

Dubai is famous for its ever satisfying, exotic palette of flavors and meat. You will be presented with a lavish spread of kebabs, hummus, falafel and various Iranian and Lebanese dishes. You will find open grills lined up and a wide array of items to choose from. You must try dishes recommended by the locals. One falls short of words explaining how delightful they are. You can even gaze at the stars for the remaining part of the night.

  • Wildlife

You will encounter UAE’s National Bird, the Falcon. Interestingly, falconers often bring their falcons to desert safaris for tourists to take pictures with, so that you don’t miss the majestic hunting bird!
