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.

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.

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.
