Stay at a hotel in Al Ain and wake up around 5:30am to catch the action at the Maqam camel racetrack outside the city. Catch the excitement as owners follow their prize animals in 4x4s from the safety of the inner enclosure. Feel the pride as the trophies are awarded.

Back for breakfast and pool at the hotel.


Wander through the ancient Al Ain Oasis and feel the cares of the world drain away. Be cooled by the wafting palms and see the traditional falaj irrigation system in action. Let your imagination take you back to the days when this was one of the most welcome sights on the Silk Route.


Take a night time guided tour through the Al Ain Zoo with its night safari. Since many of its animals are nocturnal you get to see species that are hidden from you during the day.
