Dubai – Desert Safari with kids

cropped-201901015013580154744710509.jpg

We thought we’d have one big, fairly expensive, touristy splurge evening in the desert, with camels, dune bashing, sand surfing, grill buffet, belly dancing, fire spitting, the full desert-camp extravaganza.
It cost us a fair bit, around $300, for 5 of us so it was totally worth it.

Are 4×4 Desert Safaris for Children ?

My 6 year old gets car sick occasionally, but i still decided to go for the dune bashing. I can say the kids did enjoy it.  I read that children struggle to see out of the back windows of the vehicles, but they had a full view. Elias was sitting on my lap and had the best time of his life =)  We stopped to take pictures in the Desert and it was amazing. We saw snake trails and tiny watermelons… Quad bikes are also available.

Camel Riding at Sunset in the Desert with Kids

Camel – the ship of the desert. We wanted camels. Not on the beach ( you can do that in Dubai too), we wanted camel riding in the actual desert. The children were blown away by riding into the sunset on top of a camel.

What Was Included in the Dubai Desert Safari?

Pick up from our hotel. We had another family from our hotel with us.

Dune bashing, camel ride, grill and soft drinks, show (fire spitting, belly dance), Henna tattoos, pictures in a traditional Arabic dress holding a Falk…

Our Verdict on the Dubai Camel Safari:

We loved it, specially the camels and the dunes. Dinner was great, lots of choice and plenty of food. The dancing wasn’t the highlight, I wouldn’t mind skipping it  =)

How to Book a Dubai Desert Safari with Camel Ride?
