Owner description: Al Sahra Equestrian Centre is a full-service riding centre nestled in an oasis among the desert dunes of Dubai. Large enough to cater for all your riding requirements, yet small enough to maintain a relaxed friendly vibe, our rustic ranch-style property is home to forty horses and a group of camels. We offer rides out on the surrounding desert landscape as well as riding lessons - from absolute beginners up to advanced schooling - along with stable management instruction and livery facilities. Our Camel Encounter programme is popular with both tourists and locals alike, as it offers the chance to experience one of the great traditions of the Middle East.

“Al Sahra Champagne Sunset Camel Ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

I entertained 4 friends from Chicago for a week. I scheduled many excursions for them...and this was their favorite! Just a fun, beautiful time with a nice, longer than usual camel ride. John and Mayer(sp) were great guides and interesting to talk to. The camels were so well cared for and friendly/affectionate. Nice champagne and snacks with a beautiful sunset. Stacie was a pleasure to work with in scheduling everything. Highly recommend this one!!

Definitely go, John was there to help us (horse trainer). Booked camel ride same day. Beautiful and peaceful setting. Animals are all well cared for. 4 camels on resort, well tempered, majestic! An offering of camel milk (store bought) was pleasantly taken, wonderful staff!

“Al Sahra is a real oasis in Dubai.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

Come and see the well cared for horses and camels, you'll see the real Dubai where people really care about the animals. My friend and I are 'nervous' riders but the instructor makes our lessons so much fun that we relax and concentrate on developing our riding. There are horses and rides for all abilities.

“truly a real desert experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

A mix between a laid back cowboy ranch and a traditional Arab bedouin village this place is amazing for all ages. Horses, camels, nice friendly people and wonderful views.
I can highly recommend early morning rides or sunset hack out in the quiet vast wilderness where you may see a fox, gazelles etc.

“Ride well cared for horses in the Dubai desert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

If you care about the welfare of the horse you ride then Al Sahra is the place for you. A warm welcome will greet you and you will never feel rushed or pressurised. Knowledgeable sttaff make sure that fun is had by all and you won't find them chatting on their mobile phones while giving you a lesson! Great care is taken to match your riding skills to a suitable horse. Superb desert riding with lovely views, on a clear day, of downtown Dubai shimmering in the distance. I saw lots of gazelles on my recent early morning ride. A wonderful place to enjoy your passion of horses and to kick-back and relax.
