Al Sahra Equestrian Centre
Updated on 10 June 2015

Set amongst miles of glorious natural desert, these boutique stables give you the opportunity to have a true Arabian adventure. Whether you're a complete novice or the most experienced rider, enjoy the freedom, beauty and excitement of riding a horse in the desert. Take the afternoon ride and watch the magnificent sunset over Dubai, or see the desert waking up in the morning and catch sight of a desert fox or a tiny gazelle, all for Dhs 300.

Or why not try a 90 minute Camel Encounter for just Dhs 200! Get up close and personal with the friendly camels; cuddle them, brush them and get to enjoy a 40 minute ride on one of these magnificent animals in their natural habitat. You will learn all about the history of the camel and even try some camel milk!

For more information call Lisa +971 4 4274055 or +971 56 1772856, email equestrian.centre@alsahra.com or visit www.alsahra.com.

For something really special, why not try a Champagne Camel ride to a luxurious Bedouin tent in the desert and watch the sun sink over the horizon.
