Desert safari is a must to do in Dubai trip. It take one entire evening. If you have nusia from ups and down then it is not for you. It gives an experience as in roller caster. The end of trip is full enjoy with belly dance and lots of food.

The trip Starts in the evening. Going to desert with a big SUV like Toyota Land cruiser is very exciting. the expert drivers ,driver the SUV like you are in a Fighter Jet! after that you will go to a desert restaurant and can eat and drink and look to Arabic dance and other ceremonies. At the night you will return to your hotel.
