Is it safe to say that it may be too much, give the heat in August to take these well recommended tours? Just wondering if anyone managed it in August.
It is marginally cooler in the desert and the cars are air conditioned, many people do a safari in August
I've done desert trips lots of times all through summer, including desert safaris in August.
It's more comfortable in the desert than in the city because the desert is dry and the city is horribly humid.
You'll be in an air-conditioned vehicle until close to sunset so the main heat of the day will have abated.
It's well worth doing in August.
If its in the evening should be ok to do plus your in a vehicle with AC
We're going tomo!!!
We went yesterday with Arabian Adventures-great afternoon out.
We were picked up in an air conditioned land cruiser,6 per vehicle and we headed off.Even the drive down is interesting as you head away from the city and all the tall buildings and you get a sense of the countryside and desert.It was much , cooler but the sand is hot , hot so wear runners or a closed in shoe not flip flops.We stopped to climb some dunes and see the sun set,really amazing sight in the desert.Next on to the dune bashing,really exciting and good fun.Next on to the camp for a 3 course dinner,so come hungry!Plenty of complimentary water,soft drinks available and beer & wine for a supplement.The night finished with a belly dancing show and then all the lights went out for a spot of star gazing.With all the fun and excitement,we didn't even notice the heat!Also camel rides,falcon show,henna tattoo,arabic tea drinking-all included in the price!
We’ve done desert trips in August with AA and Platinum Heritage. Will be doing another one with Destination Insight in a little under 2 week times too. As others have said it will feel marginally cooler as you’re not in the humidity of the city and it’s after the hottest part of the day too. I’m sure you’ll enjoy your trip!Edited: 16 August 2018, 02:04
Easily doable in August. We went with Arabian Adventures in August 2017 (family of four, kids 11 & 9). Great experience, driver very friendly & helpful, gave great advice for photos & getting most from the trip. Extremely hot but unlike the coastal Dubai it is a dry heat. Something you have to experience. AA was all inclusive, so we had jeep duning, sand surfing, camel ride, falcon, food, drink, belly dance, lights-out night sky. Expect to get sand in places you never knew you had. Just do it.Edited: 16 August 2018, 11:59
BTW we did the “Sundowner Dune Dinner Safari”. Forgot to mention Bedouin camp, henna hand painting, shisha, souvenirs & unlimited drinks.
hows the weather gonna be in the desert in November? i'm joining the overnight tour there!
