Take a trip to the Desert Conservation Reserve, where you will meet the wildlife face to face.
Would you like to spend time being surrounded by wildlife? The Desert Conservation Reserve in Dubai, which preserves some critically endangered species of animals and birds, is one of the best places where you can do this.
Get ready to find no conveniences at all. The utmost conveniences, you can provide yourself with include drinking water, convenient clothes, shoes, and a cap to protect your head from the scorching sun.
The Desert Conservation Reserve has seemingly nothing unusual other than sand, dust, sparse vegetation dotting the desert, and at times wild animals. However, this place cannot leave you untouched.
