Leave only footprints
Thanks to responsible tourism practices in Dubai, you can get up close and personal with the local flora and fauna without putting the environment under stress. Head to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve to enjoy guided tours and unobstructed views of the majestic desert landscape and stay overnight at Al Maha Desert Resort, an award-winning and eco-friendly hotel located within the reserve. Closer to town, you can visit the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary and witness flamingos steal the show.
Newer developments like the Dubai Safari and Green Planet promise to pack great adventures for the entire family complete with dedicated learning opportunities as well as a show and tell like you've never seen before.
