Led by a local guide
Leave your centrally located Dubai hotel in a comfortable Range Rover, and enjoy the views as you travel into the dune-dotted desert that surrounds the city.
After roughly an hour, arrive at the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. The first national park in the UAE, this stunning place was established to help preserve the unique desert habitat of the area, and the hundreds of animal, bird and plant species that live and thrive here. On arrival, board your super-stylish Range Rover with a professional safari guide at the wheel, and set off on your drive around the reserve.
As you travel, hear intriguing facts about the fragile ecosystem and watch for animals using the high-quality binoculars provided. Wildlife to look for includes the rare Arabian oryx, desert monitors, gazelles, and the elusive Gordon's wildcat. Keep your camera handy to record anything you spot! Your guide will also point out indigenous plant species and tell you how the Bedouins have used them through the ages for cooking and medicinal purposes.
After about 90 minutes on your drive, head for the Al Maha Desert Resort, an exclusive hotel and spa retreat located within the reserve. Here, sit down to enjoy a breakfast accompanied by a fresh juice, coffee or tea. Talk over your desert expedition and soak in the magical landscapes as you relax.
Afterward, board your minivan for your journey back to Dubai where your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off.
