Visit UAE’s Grand Canyon on the Wadi Bih Desert Safari in Dubai

The Wadi Bih desert region is one of the UAE’s most unique spots for desert safari excursions in Dubai. Dubbed as the Grand Canyon of the UAE, the versatility of its topography attests perfectly to its moniker.

Some of the best desert tours in Dubai include a safari package at the Wadi and involve a sightseeing trip that is nothing less than breathtaking. The Wadi needs to be explored at leisure and due to its interior location, tourists need to plan out their trip before going off exploring.

The clock tower circle at Ras Al Khaimah marks the start of the Wadi area, allowing tourists and travelers access by roads that pass by the majestic Hajar mountains. The Dibba-Masafi route is another way tour operators escort visitors into the valley besides another dolphin-rich sea route via Ziggy Beach.

The Wadi proper is situated in the Musandam mountains though, with the highest peaks in the range towering to around 2,000 feet above sea level.

Wadi Bih desert camping in Dubai is an adventurous affair and tour operators can organize some of the most interesting Dubai sightseeing tours for tourists to enjoy. Some packages include hiking, mountaineering (for trained climbers only), buffet breakfasts and overnight camps while others include a dune bashing Dubai buggy desert safari trip, tours of stone-built villages, visits to Bedouin camps, picnic dinners, sand ski in Dubai tours, camel rides and more.

Good Dubai discount tours can customize these Wadi Bih packages for groups visiting for Dubai conventions or special sightseeing tours in Dubai.

If you are unsure about your packages, ask a Dubai tour company to guide you.

  1. Photos look fine Gary, thanks!

    I can attest that Wadi Bih is well worth a visit if you’re in the UAE and it makes a welcome change from the scenery to be found elsewhere in the region.

    • Hear that people? It’s coming from someone from another country! The Wadis can be rough, they can feel tough, but the thrilling adventure is something to cherish forever.
      Thanks for the nod Scatts.
