From spotting the gazelles and Oryx to exploring the treks through the cheetah territories, a safari in UAE’s biggest nature reserve is a rare opportunity you should not forget to couple with your luxurious staycation in Dubai.
A one of kind location
Found on Sir Bani Yas Island, this verdant natural reserve of diverse flora and fauna measures 87 sq. km. The island offers every ingredient for a remarkable getaway in the wild including luxury accommodation at properties such as Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Sahel Villa Resort.
Initially a private nature reserve
Home to more than 30 or so species, the park was first established as a private nature reserve by then UAE head of state HH Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan to protect endangered species in the region.
Safari and more
An interactive and an awe-inspiring experience, Sir Bani Yas Island is also famous for horse riding in Abu Dhabi. The many other activities one can enjoy on the island includes kayaking, sailing, nature walks, falconry and even mountain biking.
Keep an eye out for these surprises
Apart from the capture-worthy views of the wilderness, the reserve ensures that visitors come face to face with the wildlife. The Oryx and the gazelles are often spotted by tourists while hyenas on the lookout for leftovers are often spotted around the elusive cheetahs.
