Holidaying in Abu Dhabi

Your stay at the Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara is sure to be accompanied by an unforgettable safari. This will add colour and glamour to your vacation.

Morning or evening

Morning safaris are graced by amazing views. The scene that unfolds before you as the rays of the sun kiss the dry sand is truly magnificent. If you want to witness the magic of a morning safari, make sure you get up as early as possible and make your way to the sites. Evening safaris are also quite nice for those who prefer taking their mornings easy and tend to be more energic in the latter hours of the day.

What to expect

Most desert adventures in Abu Dhabi are offered by companies that pick you up from your hotel. You will usually be taken in a four-by-four around the desert before you stop at a camel farm for some camel riding. Some safaris also offer optional activities such as quad biking.

Overnight desert safaris

These are considered the best safaris where you will spend the night in the mysterious desert. Listen to the sounds of nightlife and enjoy a wholesome dinner with your family.
