Desert safari in Dubai is not just about the fun activities and selfies but, it is accompanied by a fine dining experience amid the desert at night. There are mainly two kinds of safaris, the heritage safari, and regular safari. In both these, the food served at dinner is entirely different but both offer a chance to enjoy the cuisine of the Emirati culture.
In ordinary safaris, there are different cuisine options including Arabic, Indian, East Asian, and Continental dishes while in heritage safaris, you get to explore only the authentic Emirati cuisine. Once the adventures in the safari are over and the sun sets, you will be taken to the campsite where a lavish BBQ dinner including a buffet is provided. This dining experience also provides a space for social interaction.
The BBQ dinner begins with both warm and cold appetizers like shawarma, baba ganoush, falafel, mutabal, spring rolls, fattoush, and tabbouleh. Next is the main course which also offers a wide range of choices including noodles, macaroni, pasta, chicken sausages, steamed rice, baked potatoes, fried rice, and many more. The BBQ grill is rich with delicious dishes like lamb kebab, chicken tikka, shisha touk, and so on. Finally, to sweeten your tongue, plenty of dessert options are provided such as puddings, muffins, local fruits, cakes, and sweets. The safari operator also ensures unlimited gahwa (Arabic coffee), soft drinks, tea, and mineral water.
In small safari packages, these food options will change every day. In the premium desert safari deals, a staple cuisine is served and the operator will give a detailed menu with a range of food items listed. So, the dinner in the Dubai desert safari is lavish and you can enjoy the food items by watching the starry sky and the live entertainment.
