Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve

UAE's largest unfenced nature reserve

Spanning 10% of Dubai’s total area is the Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve project, the largest unfenced nature reserve in the UAE.

The reserve – which is open to the public – is also home to the region’s largest renewable energy project, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Solar Park.

Known for its admirable sustainability initiatives, the reserve is abundant with native wildlife. It hosts one of the largest populations of Arabian oryx in Dubai and the highest concentration of large flamingos in the UAE. It also provides shelter to many other endangered species that have been successfully relocated to the area.

Enjoying over 40 hectares of shrub land and fertile area, the reserve is home to over 204 species of native birds, 158 species of migratory birds, and over 10km of lakes, encompassing the Al Qudra Lakes. Additionally, a variety of reptile species can also be found across Al Marmoom’s different habitats.

The 3,000 year old Saruq Al Hadid archaeological site – one of the oldest sites in the country that dates back to the Iron Age – is also located within the reserve, making it a popular cultural and historical attraction.
