Temperature in the desert

Several people have posted that the temperature in the desert is a bit cooler than in downtown Dubai. How much cooler is it? We've booked a desert safari with Platinum Heritage this summer and aren't quite sure where in the desert they go to check the weather there.

In winter iet gets up to 5/6 degrees cooler

In summer, it doesnt actually get "cooler", but if it is 36C in Dubai at midnight, it may be 33/34 in the desert.

Of course at noon, it would be 2/3 warmer in the desert

Thank you. I think that the desert safari starts around 3 or 4pm so I will just assume that the temperature will be similar to Dubai. I'm glad that I book an air conditioned car vs. an open-air one.

The desert will be 'cooler' compared to the city, but in the peak of summer heat it really makes no difference IMO. Good call on booking an air-conditioned vehicle!

If its windy, you may also get sand blasted in the desert.

No way it's cooler than the city. especially at 3 or 4 pm. At late night or early morning it might be cooler.
