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.
