Desert safaris are organized by tour operators whom you need to contact to pre-book and coordinate your tour. These tour operators are responsible for your pick up either from your hotel or a common point that will be conveyed to you at least one day prior to your scheduled tour. On the assigned day you will be picked up from the designated spot in an SUV that will take you directly to the desert safari spot. Once you reach the entry point, you will have to change the SUV for another that is well equipped for desert rides. The entire tour needs to be organized by a tour operator alone as there is no way you will be able to access the main desert safari point by yourself.
