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.
A desert safari excursion in Dubai is one of the best activities to experience in the deserts of the Middle East. Dubai’s deserts have a number of possibilities and experiencing them all could result in quite the trip for your and your family/friends.
For those visiting one of the UAE’s richest emirates on a small purse, consider a stay at budget hotels in Dubai where the accommodation is comfortable and the service friendly. Select your preferred Dubai discount tours package from the tour company you have chosen for a better deal.

A desert tour generally involves adrenaline-pumping activities like camping, camel safaris, quad biking and even aDubai buggy desert safari.
Desert camping in Dubai for instance, has some wonderful options like overnight camping where you are surrounded by the calm and peace of the desert region for an entire night. Of course, there will be tour guides along to guide you but you could even opt for a stay at special luxury hotels in Dubai in case roughing it out is not for you.
Dubai sightseeing tours on camel back are another Gulf novelty where tourists can go for a short ride in the desert along a camel track. The ride maybe a tad bumpy, but rocking on the ships of the desert is infinitely worthwhile.
Whether you are visiting Dubai for conventions or for a short recreational trip, a desert safari in Dubai is equally enjoyable for both types of stays. If you are unsure about the arrangements though, hire an established travel operator that can help you out.
