Evening Desert Safari Tips


  • Casual comfortable clothes would be an ideal choice for an evening desert safari for you to enjoy all the fun activities there.
  • Carrying a thin jacket or a stole is advisable for the evening as deserts tend to get nippy at night.
  • Its preferable to wear open shoes, flip flops or sandals as footwear as you will be getting in and out of the vehicle frequently onto the sand.
  • Sunglasses are very helpful as sand tends to get into your eyes and can ruin your experience.
  • Sun is very strong in deserts so apply a sunscreen and carry a cap if possible.
  • Dune bashing can be a rough roller coaster experience. Keep it in mind if you are old, have a small child or have any other health issues.
  • Listen to your instructor carefully while performing the activities.
