Embark on an African-style safari without leaving the UAE

A world of adventure and excitement awaits at the picturesque Sir Bani Yas Island. Located off the coast of Abu Dhabi, this exotic locale is home to one of the region’s largest private wildlife reserves. The rustic terrain, covering the length of the island, evokes images of an African expedition, and the scenic beachfront with blue waters as far as the eye can see provides an immediate sense of escape. Discover nature at its best with a weekend getaway at this charming destination. Ideal for short escapes within the emirate, the experience promises a mix of adventure and serenity with wildlife safaris and kayaking, and the opportunity to relax and unwind in your very own private pool villa at the beautiful Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Sahel Villa Resort.

Once at the island, you can choose to retreat in the comfort of your luxury pool villa at Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Sahel Villa Resort or you can set out right away to quench your thirst for adventure with exciting activities lined up just for you.

The Arabian Wildlife Park, which occupies half the island, is home to an incredible wealth of indigenous flora and fauna, including a number of endangered species. And one of the most popular excursions offered here is a true African-style wildlife and nature drive in an open-top jeep. Explore the island with a two-hour safari and witness magnificent creatures like gazelles, giraffes, cheetahs, hyenas and the Arabian oryx in their natural habitat. If you’re up for some aquatic exploration, grab a kayak and paddle through the mangroves or out into the open sea. Encounter flamingos feeding in shallow water, schools of tropical fish beneath the surface and take in all the natural beauty the island has to offer.

Before your day draws to a close, indulge in a lavish private dinner at Savannah Grill & Lounge, complete with delectable delicacies from the African continent in a quaint setting inspired by tropical grasslands. Wake up to a delicious breakfast the next morning and enjoy a tempting spread of western favourites as you prepare for another day of sun, surf and safari.
