Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve

Dubai has come of age in the area of conservation. In a destination known for its mega-projects, a less well-known local fact is that the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve forms the biggest piece of land which Dubai has dedicated to a single project.

Beyond its breathtaking beauty, Sonara camp is a place of rare biodiversity and a sanctuary for hundreds of Gazelles and Oryx.

We are proud to be located in the middle of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve which preserves and protects this rare habitat. We encourage our guests to donate funds to the DDCR to support their mission.

“We are increasingly aware of the urgent need to take good care of our priceless natural heritage, all the more so as Dubai is expanding so fast. The Reserve protects our last unspoiled desert and unique Arabian way of life for future generations to enjoy.”

HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman, DDCR
