If you have a thirst for adventure but only have a few hours to spare, head out to the stunning Al Qudra Lakes to explore a hidden gem usually reserved for local Dubai residents. Meander through the beautiful network of lakes in your classic Land Rover Defender while your Conservation Guide points out the rare and wonderful wildlife who call this Conservation Reserve home. The area has 26 identified species of reptiles, 9 mammal species and 39 plant species and view flocks of between 300 and 500 flamingos and over 360 other bird species, of which 158 are migratory.
No visit to this Conservation Reserve would be complete without a walk around the iconic Love Lakes. With instagrammable moments at every turn, wander around the area at your leisure or escorted by your Guide.
After weaving your way back through the lakes, your Guide will head into the sand dunes to discover the natural wonders which have made Dubai famous. Along the way, you can try to spot a passing herd of gazelle.
Make your way to a quiet spot nestled beside the lake, where you will relax under the stars, enjoy a barbecue dinner, try some shisha and enjoy a peaceful evening with your friends and family.
