Have you always dreamed of taking part in an amazing adventure experience on the UAE Desert in Dubai? Does the idea of a safari holiday appeal? It is time to make that dream a reality! There are some excellent desert safari deals available and by taking advantage of them you can land yourself with a once in a lifetime holiday you will never forget! Plus, this awesome holiday does not have to cost as much as you might think if you shop around and discover one of the brilliant desert safari deals.
The UAE (United Arab Emirates) comprises seven emirates; Abu Dhabi, Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Umm Al Quwain and the emirate we are going to look at first for our desert safari in Dubai.
In Dubai, you can experience some amazing scenery, plus take part in breathtaking activities such as dune bashing, if you haven’t experienced dune bashing in Dubai it is a must! Whilst holidaying in Dubai, imagine having an off-road vehicle take you through a desert safari, it is as fun as it sounds! Or if you prefer a slower pace, how about a camel ride? There are plenty of options for family days out such as theme parks, historic districts, museums and of course plenty of shops! Don’t forget also to sample all of the amazing eating places that offer up the local specialties.
Abu Dhabi is the biggest of the seven emirates and there is no shortage of things to do and sites to see in this capital. For starters, it is highly recommended you take a trip to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, which is one of the world’s largest mosques and is a majestic sight to behold. Abu Dhabi is also the place to find the Yas Marina Circuit and the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi-so great if you are an F1 fan! If not, you needn’t worry, along Yas Island-which is where you will find the circuit and Ferrari World, there is also the Yas Waterworld theme park, for some great water-based thrills!
Well, if you are after a true piece of the adventuring lifestyle, Ras Al Khaimah could be your calling! Here you can explore the highest mountains in the UAE, or tackle a recently created climbing route, there is also the recent addition of a zip line, which is officially the longest one in the world! It is not all about action though, Ras Al Khaimah is also a great destination for beautiful white beaches, desert planes and awe-inspiring coastlines.
Perhaps you would like to base your holiday in Sharjah, an area that has managed to keep its heritage and is full of tradition. As you discover the history, you can also explore some simply wonderful beaches where no doubt you'll want to soak up the sun. Other attractions include rugged mountains, forests and of course some desert lands.
Ajman is a good choice if you are looking for a smaller area to stay in. It would also be a top pick for those wanting to focus on serene natural beauty, with plenty of beach space to enjoy, a tidal creek, lagoons and mangroves where 60-odd species of birds live, including such exotic beauties as pink flamingoes!
Fujairah is a grand striking town and another lovely option for a more slow, relaxing stay. This is an area full of breathtaking coastline and mountain views. Fujairah is also home to some truly world-class hotels. Many of these are luxurious, to say the least, however, shop around when booking and they do not have to cost as much as you may be expecting!
Umm Al Quwain is the last emirate to mention, and it is another one of the smaller areas with only a low population. That does not stop it from being a place rich in natural wonders such as coastal mangroves and islands where tropical wildlife includes gazelles, falcons and turtles. Plenty of activities are on offer such as sailing, skydiving, falconry and even camel racing! There is also another waterpark in this location, Dreamland Aquapark which would be a great family treat.
