Recommendations From our Field guides

Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa is a luxurious Bedouin encampment in the desert, 45 minutes from Dubai. Built to be a conservation-led resort and situated on a total of 225 square kilometres pristine desert landscape, Al Maha is home to 42 private guest suites. Diverse wildlife and desert activities including camel trekking and desert safaris ensure exceptional experiences for every guest whilst the Timeless Spa serves the guest with a truly rejuvenating and relaxing experience.
Camel trekking is an unique experience that provides guests with an authentic approach to the Bedouin life in the desert. It is a fun and relaxing way to travel through the desert, and admire the serenity of the dunes as it waves itself into the horizon. Finally, the guests will arrive at the camel trekking location, which has a picturesque view of the resort, to watch as the sun disappears behind the horizon and illuminates the sky with a golden glow, while they have a refreshing sparkling beverage to end off a beautiful day.

The guests are taken outside of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve for an active 45 minutes of dune bashing.  After driving for around 20 minutes, the cars will stop and the guests have an amazing view of the desert and the Hajar Mountains.

Falconry is a fantastic way to start the morning. The guests are politely welcomed with an introduction to a variety of species.  Each falcon has its own story. While you watch the falcon fly in the soft morning light, you are taken 2000 years back to when falconry first began. It is an extremely educational activity.
