What is an Abu Dhabi Desert Safari?

The desert use to be the home of Bedouins for centuries and was off bounds for normal people. The desert had always fascinated travelers, but the harsh climate, lack of water and the vast expanse, with a high possibility of getting lost, were hard to adjust to. This has changed now, and travelers wanting to explore the desert can do so with an Abu Dhabi desert safari package of their choice. A desert safari is a trip to the desert that allows you to enjoy many activities that the Bedouins love doing, explore the desert environment, experience adventurous desert activities, and observe the sunrise or sunset, all under the guidance of an expert safari marshal.

Best time to go on a desert safari Abu Dhabi

The weather in the desert is a huge problem for many travelers because of the unbearable heat. The best time to comfortably enjoy an Abu Dhabi desert safari is during the winter season which lasts from October to April. This is the time when the weather is pleasant for outdoor activities. However, this is also the peak season time for travelers visiting Abu Dhabi and weekends during this season become busier because residents also travel around. Similarly, hotel rates are also high during this period. So, the most ideal time to book an Abu Dhabi desert safari package will be during the weekdays of the winter months.

How much does a desert safari cost in Abu Dhabi?

The Abu Dhabi desert safari price depends on the type of safari and the activities offered. An evening Abu Dhabi desert safari with belly dancing or an Abu Dhabi desert safari without dune bashing will cost roughly 53 USD (199 AED) per adult. This price is a rough estimate, it is better to check the exact price with us at the time of booking.

Best clothes to wear for desert safari Abu Dhabi

The weather in the desert changes throughout the day with daytime temperatures reaching a scorching high and the nighttime being very chilly, especially during the winter months. It is recommended to apply and carry sunscreen, a pair of sunglasses and a hat during daytime and evening safaris. What you choose to wear should depend on the type of safari you are going on. Here is a rough idea.


Always wear open footwear like flip flops or sandals rather than sport shoes or sneakers because the desert sand is very fine and can easily creep up into your shoes. Wearing open-toed shoes makes dusting easier and is more suitable for the desert.


  • Morning desert safari: Stick to wearing long trousers and tops made of cotton, linen, or lightweight material. Carry a light cardigan to manage the chilly weather during early dawn.
  • Evening and Overnight desert safari: You can wear jeans and t-shirt and carry a cardigan to manage the cold.
  • Quad bike safari: Since these activities are always during the day, stick to sport wear or sporty clothes made of linen or cotton as there will be a lot of activity.

Abu Dhabi Desert Safari Location

Our Abu Dhabi desert safari location is a traditional campsite in the Al Khatim desert. Our traditional Desert Camps are equipped with all the amenities, grand, hygienic, and comfortable.

Better to know

  • Sunset timings can change every few days so be on time or else you can miss the sunset.

Frequently Asked Questions

This depends on what type of desert safari you choose. If you are going on a shared safari that is operated by bus then the cost will be less. However, don't expect much quality from shared desert safaris. Premium and private desert safaris are a bit more costly but provide a good quality experience.
To feel comfortable in a morning or afternoon desert safari we highly advise men and women to wear loose clothes made of linen or cotton. If you have booked a sunrise, evening or overnight safari then take along a jacket or cardigan to wear when feeling cold. Make sure to wear open-toed footwear like sandals or flip flops. Don't wear sports shoes or socks as the fine sand can get into your shoe and be a real bother.
Al Khatim Desert is a desert on the way from Abu Dhabi to Al Ain. Al Khatim Desert is an ideal spot for off-road riding excursions.
Dune bashing is a type of off-roading that takes place on sand dunes and is mainly done in large 4WD cars such as the Toyota Land Cruiser or Fortuner. It requires driving at various speeds across sand dunes and manoeuvring the car in such a way that it maintains balance while ascending and descending the dune.
  • Avoid eating anything heavy before the desert safari because the dune bashing can make you feel nauseous. If you are eating anything, eat at least 2 hours before your experience.
  • Wear clothes that are both comfortable and appropriate. It's fine to wear shorts, t-shirts, or lightweight tops. Extra shawls or jackets can be brought in case the weather cools down at night.
  • It is better to wear open shoes, flip flops, or sandals because you will have the option to wander in the dunes. Sand can get into your shoes in a variety of ways.
  • Remember to bring sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses.
  • Bring a camera or a video camera to record the thrill of the adventure and the desert's spellbinding splendour.
