For an exhilarating and blood-pumping activity, travelers can opt for a desert drive in a 4X4. Racing up giant sand dunes and across vast open plains is a thrilling experience and unique way to explore the desert. It also offers the opportunity to spot the indigenous wildlife and also stop and relax in an unspoilt and natural setting.
The majestic falcon has been ingrained in Arabian culture since the 13th century BC and falconry was an art used by the local Bedouin. Visitors can witness exciting falconry displays within the vast openness of the desert and watch as they soar effortlessly through the brilliant blue sky.
Al Maha offers the opportunity to ride into the setting sun, over pleated sand dunes on beautiful Arabian horses. These horses originate from this part of the world and have been used transportation purposes, even carrying the Bedouin Nomads across the deserts. They are known for their elegant movements and will glide over the desert sands with extraordinary grace.
A great way to explore the expansive desert environment is to cross its dusty surface on foot. Visitors can escape to an area of blissful solitude where the only sounds that can be heard are the warm wind and the steady footfall of four-footed creatures. Trekking within the desert is also a prime opportunity to catch glimpses of the array of different birds and animals that inhabit the reserve.

With a fiery-red backdrop of rippled sand dunes that clash against the opal-blue sky, Al Maha resort is an exotic oasis set within the 16-square-mile Conservation Wildlife Reserve of Dubai. Named after the majestic horned Arabian Oryx, the destination rids itself of usual desolate-and-stark desert connotations and is inhabited by unique ecosystems, where both endangered and indigenous animals roam freely and undisturbed. A rich diversity of elusive animal species can be spotted from the resort, giving the feeling of living on safari and escaping to the animal kingdom. Guests can watch the living desert from their magnificent Bedouin suites, where luxury comfort and spectacular Arabian decor provide an indulgent atmosphere. They are a combination of two worlds - one of transcendent, elegant living, reflecting the cosmopolitan vibe of Dubai and one of simpler, Bedouin values from which Arabian traditions stem from. An airy and polished theme runs throughout the resort and to a host of exceptional restaurants. Organic dishes are meticulously prepared by culinary masters and served on outdoor terraces or on top of a pristine sand dune. Balmy days can be enjoyed poolside while drinking in the mesmerising scenery or exploring the mysterious desert where lost tales and secrets remain buried within the layers of time .
