Leave the city behind you and escape into the rocky wilderness. Explore the desert and mountains around Dubai and discover the region's historical past. Take an adventurous drive through the desert and dramatic red-rock landscape in a 4x4 vehicle and stop for a break at a Wadi.
Visit the attractive heritage village of Hatta and admire the romantic old Fortress and the house of the Sheikh. Watch the traditional way of watering dates and take a cool fresh dip in the idyllic Hatta pools before lunch. Enjoy a tasty set menu at the Fort Hotel and return to Dubai feeling refreshed and relaxed.
For your adventurous Hatta Safari From Dubai you will be picked up from your hotel by a 4X4 vehicle around 8:00am.(Please make sure you are ready for your hotel pick-up as the driver will not be able to wait.)
Discover the true essence of Arabia, when your four-wheel drive leaves the bustling city of Dubai, heading towards Hatta. The silhouette of the rugged mountain range invites drivers to an off-road adventure through the steep passes. The journey takes you through a wild landscape of dramatic canyons, deep gorges filled with natural spring water and rocky valleys. The first stop is at Hatta Dam for 15 minutes. The drive ends in the village of Hatta where we visit the Heritage Village to visit the restored fort converted to a museum which provides fascinating historical information about the area. We then have lunch at the beautiful Hatta Fort Hotel, still overwhelmed and impressed by the incomparable landscape.

Really enjoyed this trip and is a must do if in Dubai. The guide was brilliant and made everyone feel welcome. Very safe driver and great sense of humour....Geoffrey M Prior
We had a small group on the tour which was very nice. The guide we had was helpful and patient. Would appreciate if we had more time to look at the places we stop by and got to...Elvira Shamsuddin
