This centre occupies over 4% of all Dubai land, and is made up of over 225 square kilometers of desert habitat, animals, birds, and other flora and fauna. We had the great good fortune of seeing many Onyx, and a small gathering of gazelles (much smaller in stature than I assumed). To drive through this sanctuary you need a guide with a specially equipped vehicle. On the way into the park they deflate their tires to only approx. half their normal pressure. Then switch to 4 wheel drive for the sand. We experienced "Dune Bashing" where they drive off road through the dunes, and a number of people became motion sick. We were taken to a spot with nothing but desert dunes surrounding us, to watch a dessert sunset. I was amazed at how fast the sun sets over the low horizon of the desert. It disappears within moments. We.were taken to a beautiful gathering spot and spent a few evening hours in the desert trying local cuisine, riding on camels, dune boarding (much like tobogganing in snow), and experiencing Arabian entertainment. This was all arranged through Arabiab adventures It was the best experience we had in Dubai so far.

This review should demonstrate the lovely time we have had during the safari of Travco in the Dubai Desert. The trip was well-organized: we got picked up at the hotel where the journey to the desert begun, the surroundings were beautiful and everything was well-arranged at the camp with food and activities. The driver and our guide for the day was Mohammed Ali, he really made our time exceptional! He had remarkable knowledge about his craft and he had an amazing sense of humor. He took his time with us and the other passengers of the car by making photos of us in the desert and having great conversations with us during the ride. Additionally, great music in the car which made it even more fun. Overall, an amazing experience and a shout-out to Mohammed Ali!

My wife and I booked to go on he Desert Dunes and dinner safari with Arabian Adventures. It was exhilarating. The drive over the dunes was mind blowing and while terrifying we felt very safe as our driver was obviously an expert at driving over the dunes. Being a wildlife fanatic I was more than excited to see a desert lizard, Arabian oryx, desert gazelles and sand gazelle very close and in quite large numbers for such rare animals. I then rode a camel to a Bedouin tent, set up in the middle of nowhere for a typical Arabian dinner. It was set up very romantically with just my wife and I there with our guide and the chef, who produced a fabulous meal. (I am flattered enough to think that they may have thought us to be a young couple on a romantic journey and not an old married couple). I heartily recommend this tour with Arabian Adventures, it is a bit pricey but I felt it was worth every Dhiram.
