A new glamping park has opened near Abu Dhabi complete with luxury domes with AC and even a telescope!
Abu Dhabi’s Jebal Hafit desert park near Al Ain is the perfect place to enjoy the perfect weather right now. Especially, if like some of the DubaiLAD team, you think camping is a bit basic, the glamping aspect should seal the deal. Especially when it comes with a stunning tent, AC and a telescope to explore the night sky.
As well as the AC-domes you can also book overnight stays in sci-fi pods or traditional Bedouin-inspired tents. Or you can even pick your own plot and bring your own tent for the night.
The park is spread over 9km and is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. While there, you can discover some of the most incredible archaeological discoveries in the UAE including burial sites dating back 5,000 years!
You can also explore via mountain bikes, horses, camels or even powered carts. Or go your own way and take guided hiking tours of the stunning area. And of course, you can always climb up the Jebel Hafit mountain nearby, Abu Dhabi’s tallest peak.
The park originally opened at the start of the year but it’s now officially re-opened after Covid-19 measures were lifted.
After being stuck indoors for most of the year, glamping near Abu Dhabi sounds about perfect right now!
