Full description

Escape the heat of the city and discover the pristine desert eco-system inside the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Enjoy insightful commentary from your guide and savor a delicious breakfast.

Travel in comfort as your safari guide skillfully pilots your Range Rover through the reserve in search of the Arabian Oryx. Admire an abundance of birdlife, desert monitors, gazelles, and maybe even the rare Gordon’s wildcat.

Witness the most carefully preserved wildlife area in the United Arab Emirates and drive to a remote lake, which is also a bird sanctuary. Step out into the heat and capture incredible photos. Make yourself more comfortable in the sunshine with your complimentary headscarf.

Continue to the Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa and conclude your morning with fresh juice, tea, or coffee and a delicious breakfast with views overlooking the desert dunes.

A great opportunity to get off the tourist trail and explore the desert in the comfort of a Range Rover. We saw large numbers of oryx and gazelles and our guide Mauricio did a fantastic job of explaining the desert landscapes and pointing out the variety of ecosystems. Breakfast at the Al Maha was delicious and suitably luxurious with more good than I could possibly eat. Well worth the slightly higher price range for this tour.

Our guide Ibrahim picked us up punctually. He was friendly, spoke good English and was informative and interesting without being too intrusive. The sights we saw were very impressive, and the conservation project quite inspiring, The hotel breakfast was most delicious on the hotel terrace, accompanied by the birds and gazelles.

Pick up time was notified in advance, and guide arrived on time and in excellent air conditioned vehicle. Stopped en route to see the camel race track and camels being exercised. Once in the reserve, we made stops in the middle of the dunes and then at a quiet lake. We saw oryx, gazelles, horses, desert lizard, beetle, lots of mysterious tracks in the sand and many birds at the lake. Final stop was for a fantastic breakfast on the terrace of an exclusive hotel, where we were visited by a friendly gazelle, and could see many other animals from our breakfast table. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and the experience was miles away from the 'adventure' trips to the desert. Very worthwhile to see a completely different side of Dubai.
