Half day desert safari tour with kids?

Hi all,

Would you recommend taking a 6 year old and a 4 year old on the half day desert safari tour?

Thanks

Short answer: no.

Long answer: it is a problem because of the dune driving element of the desert safari. Driving is rough and you can get thrown around a lot even if strapped in. Booster seats are not provided by safari companies. If you insist on taking such young children, the companies that might allow it will certainly get you to sign a disclaimer.

They sound a little young for all the reasons Alex has mentioned. If you want to see camels, take them to the zoo (see reviews here on TA). It'll be a lot more comfortable for young ones. And to see the desert, just drive outside the city for a few kms.
