A safari conjures up the romantic images of a trip through the mountains and jungles. In the past, safaris were conducted on foot, but now the modern safari is typically run by a 4-wheeled driven vehicle. The desert safari is an additional mutation of the age old safari, and is just as exciting. Particularly, the city of Dubai offers a desert safari dubai packages, which is basically a trip through the sand dunes.

The desert is an area of barrenness consisting of sand as well as small hillocks called dunes. These dunes are distinct in that they are not static and keep shifting depending on the direction of the strong winds. When moving in the desert sand storms are fairly common and when visibility can decrease to zero. Thus there is a need of a special four-wheeled vehicle. In most cases, in Dubai the Toyota land cruiser is common.The vehicle is spacious and with AC on it doesn't get warm in the desert heat. Before, desert safaris were based on camels - but it was an old time.

The typical desert safari is a drive through the desert before settling on a camel farm.You will then be able to enjoy a short ride with the camel. And also, take a peek as to how camels are reared.

The safari will continue on and take you to Bedouin camp. This is wonderful experience and you'll learn about how Bedouinsare the nomads of the past who reside among the desert. A Bedouin camp will also be an oasis. You can enjoy the cool water and the romantic setting. Local girls can also apply exotic henna designs for you. Bedouin camps today have all the essential amenities, and you can get yourself a fresh start. There is also an exotic barbecue dinner along with Lebanese ladies performing a belly dance for your pleasure. Belly dancing is the focal point of the evening and sometimes girls from Mumbai have been drafted to the performance.
