Dubai’s extremely popular desert safari has been ranked as the world’s top tourism experience along with leading travel company OceanAir’s camel riding and desert BBQ in Tripadvisor’s 2020 Travellers’ Choice Awards.

The awards recognise the world’s top experiences featuring tours and activities as decided by Tripadvisor and Viator travellers. Winners are determined using a system based on the millions of reviews and ratings of travellers around the world over a 12-month period.

Dubai is popular with international travellers for desert safari featuring the adventures in dunes, riding camels, handling falcons, traditional Bedouin hospitality and barbeque buffet dinner under a night sky.

Rising demand for adventure travel experiences is demonstrated in the increased popularity of desert safaris among all visitor demographics, an activity that was enjoyed by 41% of all international visitors, according to Dubai Tourism’s Annual Visitor Report 2019.

Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM), said, “Our world-class propositions and experiences showcase the diversity of the destination’s offerings and this latest accolade not only reaffirms the city’s position as a must-visit destination but is a timely positive development in the current situation, as it complements our ongoing global campaign to increase consideration for Dubai as the first choice for international travellers.”
