Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, Dubai

4.7
#2 of 13 in Nature in United Arab Emirates
National Park Wildlife Area
Explore the extensive landscape and diversity of nature at Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a protected natural area. Away from the bustle and change that is modern-day Dubai, this conservation project was established to maintain no less than five percent of the Emirate of Dubai's total landmass. Trek across the dunes on the back of a camel and look for the wildlife that has been reintroduced to its natural habitat, such as caracals, sand foxes, and Brandts hedgehogs. Enjoy a range of traditional Arab pursuits, such as archery and horse riding, or something a bit more modern, like sand boarding. Check out the falconry presentations, where you'll meet the birds of prey up close.

  • I adore this place. The feeling that you're in Africa on Safari. Animals a lot, they live on large areas, clean, friendly. Full feeling that they are free. For kids there are contact aviaries, there are amusement-rides, ponies, camels. You can feed the animals. There, where to eat. Wonderful staff, loves their pets. Must see hippos, giraffes and wild animals.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
