Dubai Desert Overview Image

Desert

After taking a tour of Dubai's breathtaking skyscrapers and world-class shopping malls, many visitors head into the dreamlike surrounding of the desert. Here you can discover the exotic wildlife whilst experiencing the thrills amongst the endless dunes.

A visit to the desert is incomplete without a safari that starts with a drive across the dunes in powerful 4x4s. Expert drivers slowly climb tall mountains of sand, suddenly accelerate at the top and take a sharp dive down the dune cliff. Dangerous as it may sound, it's absolutely safe and the adrenaline rush makes it all worthwhile. If you have a taste for speed and an enthusiasm for an unusual sport like sand skiing, strap on your skis and enjoy the descent down the steep but harmless sand dunes.

Also worthwhile is a special tour to visit the Hajjar Mountains. Along the way, explore the wadis (dry river valleys) that are formed by streams flowing down from mountains. Then move on for an excursion to Fossil Rock and ancient archaeological sites like Camel Rock. If you wish to delve deeper into the fascinating Arabian heritage, a visit to Hatta, a 200-year-old village, and Al Ain, which is popularly known as the Garden City is highly recommended.
