Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, Dubai
(4.5/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • After several days of hiking and driving across the Dubai desert, we boarded a hot-air balloon at sunrise to take in the landscape from above. I was captivated by the plays of light from the morning rays of sun over the repeating patterns of undulating dunes. It was like the desert was alive with motion, with sand waves mimicking the swell of the sea extending as far as the eye could see. This single tree appeared in the arid earth as a steadfast symbol of life in impossible conditions—a lone survivor in a vast ocean.
  • Beautiful! Absolutely loved my evening out with Platinum Heritage. Went for a drive around the desert in a 1950s Land Rover and then spent the evening in the camp. This is the most beautiful desert I've been to in Dubai, UAE.
  • Good Environment place
  • great
  • Beautiful desert.
