It goes without saying that both Dubai and Abu Dhabi are the most popular cities in the UAE. Home to sky-touching structures and famous tourist spots, both these cities have a lot in common.
One thing that you should try in both these cities is the magnificent experience of Desert Safari Dubai. A famous tourist attraction, this safari allows adventure-seekers to indulge in some adrenaline rushing activities while taking a closer look at the traditional Arab lifestyle.
Having said that, the experience you are going to have, be it in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, depends a lot on the company you have selected. Numerous companies in both these emirates offer safari trips. But, certainly, not all of them are reliable. Therefore, you need to choose the best out of the lot to have an unforgettable experience.
Here are five handy tips that will help you in doing so:
While it is true that you can find abundant companies easily on the internet, it’s always recommended to ask people you know for references. Every company claims to offer the best services. Therefore, it can be hard to find the best one that is actually willing to walk the extra mile to ensure your convenience and comfort.
Asking your friends/family for references is recommended since they will share with you their own experiences, the good, the bad and average parts of the safari trip with the said company. This will help you to make an informed decision.
Always make a point to read reviews before selecting a company. There are numerous platforms such as Quora and Reddit where you can find these reviews and testimonials. Furthermore, you can find many groups and communities on Facebook as well where people have shared their desert safari experiences. Take them into account before finalizing a company.
An important thing I would like to point out here is that most of the reviews highlighted by the company on its website are fake. Therefore, it’s better that you check for other platforms for reviews. Simply going through their social media handles can tell you a lot about a company that offers desert safari trips.
Compare their Rates, Deals and Services
Never select a company without comparing its rates with other service providers. Of course, the trip is about comfort, quality and adventure, but the budget aspect shouldn’t be neglected as well. So, make sure to compare the rates of different companies that offer desert safari Dubai and Abu Dhabi services. Also, compare their features and facilities as well. If a company offers a desert safari trip at lower rates and has limited activities, it’s better to not select it since you will be missing out on all the fun the trip is famous for.
Other than rates, you must also compare Dubai and Abu Dhabi desert safari deals and packages as well. Know what each deal and package includes and then make a decision. Usually, deals offered by desert safari companies are:
Desert safari packages are offered by companies are:
- Morning desert safari
- Evening desert safari
- Overnight desert safari
Check the prices, what’s included, and every other detail before making a final decision.
Check their Menu
Refreshment i.e. dinner forms an integral part of the morning and overnight desert safari deals. Therefore, you shouldn’t neglect this aspect. Check out the food items they include in their menu. The better choice would be a company that offers a three-course dinner at the campsite. Furthermore, you should also share your preferences (non-veg or veg food) to the company before booking them.
Know about their Camps
Ask the company the type of camps they have. This is particularly important if you intend to opt for an overnight desert safari. The campsite should have separate toilets for men and women. Furthermore, it is also vital that you know about the number of people that will be there at the campsite. Since you will be spending most of your time during the safari at the campsite, it’s important that you know about the facilities available there.
In a nutshell, it’s not every day that you will have this amazing experience. Therefore, it’s best to plan it fully so that it can turn out to be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. From what you are going to wear to the time of the safari, everything must be decided after thorough deliberation and consideration.
