Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, Dubai

(1,600+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange your visit to Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and discover more family-friendly attractions in Dubai using our Dubai vacation generator.
