Embark on a desert adventure in the expansive Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve. Spanning around 10% of the emirate of Dubai, it is the UAE’s largest unfenced nature reserve where visitors are welcome to venture through the sands, go cycling amid the dunes or enjoy a picnic in the wild. 

If you’re interested in Emirati history and culture, you can see how life was for Bedouin desert dwellers in Al Marmoom. Visit a heritage camp and enjoy a traditional feast alongside camel rides, falcon shows and stargazing at night. Looking for sport and exhilaration? Rent a bike and hit the Al Qudra cycling track – an 86km path that cuts through the sandy terrain and offers spectacular sights of the native flora and fauna.
