CAMEL RIDE & EVENING CARAVAN
The quintessential desert experience, a camel ride is an opportunity to explore the landscape from above and learn the animal’s importance in Bedouin culture.
Group and private lessons are available for experienced and beginner riders, including children. Spacious paddocks and a horse-walking arena are among the facilities.
Desert Pony Adventures with Spot and Fluff
This interactive experience invites children to connect with these gentle creatures. Kids learn how to take care of a pony through grooming, washing and walking lessons, followed by an introductory ride.
There is perhaps no better way to see the rolling red and golden sands than from atop an elegant Arabian horse. Rides, available for beginner and experienced riders, explore the reserve and the flora and fauna that call it home.
