Is there any dress code to follow during the desert safari?
No dress code is necessary to follow. However, as the weather stays hot and uncomfortable during day time, it is better to wear comfortable clothes. Men can wear cotton pants, t-shirts, or shorts. Women can wear pants and T-shirts. If you are coming during winter, don’t forget to bring a light jacket.
What type of commute do we get for safari?
Normally, 4-wheelers are used for desert safari since heavy-duty vehicles can sustain pressure, especially when driving on sand.

Besides, the safety of our guests is our primary concern; thus, we only offer heavy-duty vehicles like Land Cruisers, Hummers, or Prado.
