Discover the story behind the stunning wildlife of Sir Bani Yas Island with a guided
tour in a specially designed Land Cruiser.

The Arabian Wildlife Park is a beautiful nature reserve that occupies more than half
of the island. It was established in 1977 by Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan when he
passed a law preventing hunting on the island. His vision was to create a haven for
animals – both local and foreign – to roam free and live naturally.

It’s now home to thousands of animals, and your local expert guide will help you spot
many different species as you explore – and give you plenty of photo stops along the
way. Look out for gazelles, llamas, giraffes, ostriches and one of the world’s largest
herds of endangered Arabian oryx. There are cheetahs, hyenas, and more than 100
species of indigenous wild birds, while the waters around the island are home to sea
turtles and dolphins.

All developmental work on the island has been carried out with a view to conserving
its fragile ecosystem. You’ll return to the ship having enjoyed time alongside some
wonderful creatures you may otherwise never see in such a natural setting.
