THE TIMEOUT. Desert Storm


When it comes to maintaining your health and wellness there is nothing that compares to getting back to nature to relax, revive and rejuvenate. In the day-to-day city madness that is life in Dubai it’s easy to forget that we have access to some of the worlds most stunning natural environment and wildlife right on our doorstep and now that the winter has finally come it’s the perfect time to get outdoors and discover the beauty of the region. Enter Husaak, a unique tour company passionate about both showing-off and preserving the beauty of the gulf. Sand & Smoke will be joining them on their first adventure of the season, the Caracal Challenge, a unique 15km desert walk exploring the Abu Dhabi desert under the stars. It’s all for a good cause too, with the special event being held in honour of the Emirates Wildlife Society – WWF to mark 15 years of conversation work in the region. With adventure, education and registration fees going to support the ongoing conservation of the UAE’s wildlife there has never been a better reason to get out in the great outdoors.

The Caracal Challenge takes place on November 11. Visit for more information and we’ll see you there.
