We know that Dubai is rich in oil. And thus the people that live there possess good income and wealth to afford the luxuries. But people coming from outside the country do not know these basics. Or at least, they want to cover off these with a fine trip that also seems good on their budget. For this, people began to question the roots of Dubai i.e. the deserts. Since then, the desert has had a special place in the Desert Safari tourism industry for Dubai.
The city is rich in lights, water shows, fountains, long and wide roads, and never-ending skyscraper battles. But over time, these attractions have become weak to gather tourists from the world. Only a few newcomers that do not explore the city tend to visit these places and fly back. But the ones that love to explore, know that there is a gem in the city which needs attention.
Desert: The Gem
Sand, terrains, and no greenery are what we know of the deserts. But this is one way to picture the scene. Deserts contain much more for you or you can say they want you to begin the exploring. Tourism companies love to turn a raw element into gold overnight. The royalty of a beach is not just the sand. But it is the entertainment that is available in the form of stalls and water activities. Since water is not there in bulk in the desert, it is the entertainment that needs attention.
For this, different entertainment activities are where you can begin your interest. In the past, or eventually, when it all began, there was no quad bike or a dirt bike. All there was were camels and the rural people. So how did the Dubai Desert Safari tourism begin?
· Desert Exploration
At first, there were explorations regarding how the desert looked like. The parts that contain the terrains attract the vehicle riding the most. This is where people experience the thrill of off-roading nowadays. But before this, it was only sand and a terrain. Hence, over time, people began to exploit nature and think of ways to improve and bring in tourism.
· Camel Riding
A camel is the first thing you visualize through deserts. A camel is a giant but friendly animal widely present in Arab countries. It is like their local and homeland animal. And from science, you will find more about why they have importance and use in the deserts. So camel riding was like a new adventure and experience for many. And with that too in the sand, the popularity began to grow.
BBQ dinners and fire shows which you see nowadays do not resemble the past. At first, people used to visit the desert to camp and party for the night. It is because, at night, the desert presents a cool and windy atmosphere. And in a country hot like the UAE, this is the region to entertain in the evening. Thus, at first, you will find the traits of small parties or kahwa and date snack parties.
However, what you see now is an advancement to all these Desert Safari Dubai activities. At first, it was a camel ride but now it is SUV and quad bike riding!
