Platinum Heritage

Summer Desert Safaris

The Dubai desert can be enjoyed all year around on one of our award winning desert safaris. The desert is cooler than the coast at night and we’ve made a few changes to our desert safaris in summer to accommodate the increase in temperature. What’s more, we have added some extra special treats to our most popular desert safaris. Each month in summer we have a different theme with complimentary activities on the Heritage Desert Safari, Platinum Desert Safari and Camel Desert Safari.

Sunset and nighttime are the best times to go into the desert.

Sand has little moisture so it heats up in the morning fast and loses its heat quickly in the evening. Like the Bedouins chose to do any walking at this time, we do our summer desert safaris in the evenings as it is the coolest time.

The desert is cooler than the coast at night by 7-10 degrees.

Because sand cools down so quickly, the desert is cooler than the coast during the night in summer in Dubai. Bedouins would take advantage of this and live inland in the summer. Don’t melt outdoors in the city – enjoy the coolness of the Dubai desert.

Natures has its own air conditioning

Bedouin built their camps on top of sand dunes to make the most of the breeze to cool things down. Our desert safari camp keeps this tradition and benefits from a summer breeze. We have also embraced modern technology and have cooling units in our camp.

Air Conditioned Safari vehicles

If you would like to experience our signature Heritage desert safari in vintage, open-top Land Rovers you can. If you would prefer a closed-in air-conditioned car to explore the desert and wildlife then you can opt for this at no additional charge.  You can also choose to upgrade your vehicle to a luxury Range Rover for an extra fee.
