Once you’ve booked your safari, you’ll be designated a pick up spot. Most tour packages offer hotel pick up, but some may designate a common pick up spot for larger group tours. The desert being located a little outside the main city, can be only accessed by car. The transfer vehicle will be dropping the tourists off at the car park. The safari camp, however, is located in the middle of the desert. As a result, tourists will be picked up from the parking lot in a second SUV and driven to their campsite.
The pick up time for the evening desert safari would be between 02.30 PM and 03.00 PM.
The best time for an evening desert safari in Dubai would be during the cooler months of winter. The months between November and February are ideally suited for desert safaris and outdoor adventure sports, since the weather during these months remain comparatively cooler and there is no rain.
