If camping is not really your thing,
Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa
in Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve takes glamping to another level, with luxury tented-style villas, each featuring its own private infinity pool.
It's a place for relaxation rather than risk-taking, with a number of chilled activities on offer, the highlight being the sunset camel rides over the rolling dunes, where you can enjoy a beverage as you take in the uninterrupted views. Ask for a villa overlooking one of the natural oases, where you can watch gazelles and Arabian oryx stop in for a drink.
