Explore Wadi Wurayah on your Safari Tour in Dubai

Wadi bashing on a safari tour in Dubai is one of the more popular tourist activities, but a trek in the wild pockets of Wadi Wurayah is not something you would want to do in haste. The Wadi is well known as the first UAE mountain habitat to be declared as a protected zone, all 129 square kilometers of it.

Tourists coming sightseeing in Dubai can request a leisure trip to the Wadi Wurayah, which technically falls within the precincts of Fujairah, another emirate of the UAE.One World does hold excursions to this wonderful place though.

The Arabian Tahr, an extremely rare species of mountain goat is found in only three places in the world and Wadi Wurayah is counted as one. The Epipactis veratrifolia, an orchid variety unique to the UAE is another rare sight to look out for in the Wadi besides other endangered species of flora and fauna.
Some rare sights you can hope to see on your Arabian adventure in the Wadi Wurayah include the graceful caracal lynx, humpbacked flies, Arabian leopards, spotted eagle owls, blue-tailed lizards and the Garra barreimiae, a type of fish unique to the Wadi.
For tourists interested in Dubai City tours that emphasize on heritage monuments and architectural marvels, there are around 18 heritage sites scattered about the Wadi. You can round off your safari tour in Dubai with the Al Wurayah waterfalls, a lovely scenic spot in the Wadi Wurayah.

Become One With The Desert On A Safari Tour In Dubai

Deserts need not be a waste of space or blighted land, at least not where an entire sub genre of desert-related activities and adventure sports have cropped up to make the best use of such land.
Dubai, in true top-tourist-destination-style has the perfect antidote for the holiday blues with a jaw-jarring collection of sports and options known as a safari tour in Dubai. Desert safaris are typically an Arab pastime and while similar trips are offered in Africa as well, they have a more relaxed appeal in the Emirate.

In fact, a desert camp arranged by the Watani Family Camp group is one of the Dubai City activities currently experiencing heavy promotion in anticipation of the Dubai Shopping Festival. The camp used to be open exclusively to Emiratis earlier, but is now being extended to include every nationality and income bracket that can pay the nominal entry fee.

Our Abu Dhabi travel company can arrange your travel itinerary to include this unique experience, as many items are included on the activity list. For instance, instructors will be present to supply lessons in trail finding, cooking the Emirati way, navigating by astrological means and even a camel safari in Dubai.
If you still wish to stick to the regular safari tour in Dubai, then Dadabhai Travels can arrange for a package that includes an invigorating wadi bashing ride, camel rides and an exploration trip of the wadis besides many more options.
Whether you intend to rough out your sightseeing in Dubai trip or want to enjoy it while in the lap of luxury, simply inform us of your needs. We can accommodate you accordingly.

Going On A Desert Safari Tour In Dubai In The Winter

In New York, the Christmas season is heralded by Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade while in Europe, the weather has multiple personalities depending on the country you find yourself travelling in. In the antipodean nations on the other hand, the weather is as balmy as it can get, with plenty of opportunities for tanning and surfing.

 

For itself, Dubai has more in common with the later group of countries. Winter gaiety is simply a succession of days filled with sunshine and outdoor activities that can be enjoyed without worrying overmuch about the weather.
Safari Tour in Dubai undoubtedly ranks as one of the top things to experience while staying at the

Golden Emirate. The options for a safari tour can vary depending on the Abu Dhabi travel companyyou consult with.

For instance while some only arrange for a camel safari in Dubai, there are a few who provide dune bashing as an attraction as well. Your best bet would be to opt for an Arabian adventure that will give you a comprehensive package- from camel rides during any part of the day to a romantic dhow cruise in Dubai along the waters of the Creek in the night.
You could even carry your children along for a desert safari tour in Dubai for as much as 290 dirhams per child. Certain Dubai City Tours have specialized packages for tiny tots.
Beware of Dubai tour packages that do not have the necessary permits or grants to offer such activities. Go in for a professional service and your experience will be all the more authentic and safe.

Go Wadi Bashing For Your Safari Tour In Dubai

Wadi bashing definitely counts as one of the more adrenaline-racing activities you could experience in Dubai. A modern-dayArabian adventure to the core, it is 4-wheel vehicles instead of camels that will help you tame the endless wadis in the Dubai deserts.
Wadis in the Middle East are essentially rocky riverbeds which have dried up. What a wadi bashing adventure is not is for the faint-hearted, as it involves expert maneuvering of the vehicle on part of the driver.
Of course, you could also hire the services of a professional wadi driver but you will still be rattled about in

your seat as he conquers the harsh grounds. Nonetheless, for an Arabian adventure that veers to the extreme, wadi bashing offers a lasting thrill.

One World suggests visiting the Emirate for this Dubai City activity between the months of October and April. Also, unless you have an experience of driving through miles of unalterable rough terrain, we strongly recommend you ask for the services of a trained driver.
It is quite possible to lose yourself in the vast desert regions but with a trained driver or guide you can get the most out of your wadi bashing adventure.
One of the best wadis to traverse in a 4WD is Fossil Rock along the Sharjah-Al Dhaid route. Breath-taking vistas and scenic views are part and parcel of every wadi bashing safari tour in Dubai. If you are in the mood to rough it out, you could carry your sleeping bags and spend the night in the wilderness under the clear night sky.
Get in touch with our Abu Dhabi travel company for Dubai car rentals and Dubai Tour Packages for wadi bashing.
