Dubai is known for its exhilarating desert safaris. If your mother loves indulging in such adventurous outdoor activities, then this is definitely something you should book for her for Mother’s Day. Not to mention, a desert safari doesn’t just include a 4×4 ride in the sand dunes of Dubai, but may also include live barbeque, a buffet dinner, dance performances, live fire shows, and even a camel ride. While there are many organisers offering a slew of exciting desert safari packages, we’d certainly suggest making your bookings in advance.
