Our memorable day for the evening desert safari Dubai got started with a pick-up from our hotel or doorstep.

Dune Bashing is the most famous terrain sport to encounter at the dunes. You can choose the SUVs from Nissan Patrol, land cruiser, dune buggy, and wrangler jeep. These vehicles are seen in full fierce mode on the golden sand. We opted for a dune buggy ride and parted in pairs for this. While dune bashing, we were accompanied by the tour operators of the Happy Adventures Tourism team. He gave us company considering our safety concerns. Running a dune buggy while getting colored in the orange sunset hues was an experience out-of-this-world.

We were escorted to the camel caravans by Happy Adventures Tourism’s guide. There we discovered that a camel safari is an aesthetic ride to encounter in this nomadic region.
3. BBQ and Buffet Meal
An evening tour at the dunes invites the foodies to a scrumptious buffet station. The thirst of a dune buggy and quad bike rider is quenched by chilled soft drinks.
