desert safari  in dubai

desert safari dubai

Whilst you can drive in to the desert from your beachside residence, we would recommend, if you want an authentic desert safari experience, staying at the luxurious Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa.

From this beautiful encampment you can experience this stunning desert wilderness and the wildlife - such as Arabian Oryx and Gazelle - that roams freely within it.  There are four ways of enjoying the desert, all of which - to a lesser or greater extent - are likely to lead to sightings of wild animals. 

Wildlife Drives:  A gentle drive through the beautiful Al Maha landscape gives you the unique opportunity to get close and take photos of the free-roaming wildlife in the reserve.  Find out about the serious conservation efforts at Al Maha.

Horse Riding:  Feel the surge of adrenalin as you put your Arabian horse through its paces whilst taking in the infinite beauty of the desert landscape, and keeping a watch from the high vantage point of your saddle, for wild animals.

Nature Walks:  With numerous species of flora and fauna indigenous to the Al Maha reserve, amateur biologists and botanists can test their powers of recognition in guided nature walks led by our field guides.

Desert Safaris:  For a thrilling adventure, a four-wheel drive Desert Safari can quickly transport you to some of the more isolated parts of the Al Maha reserve.
