Ecoventure has a long history of providing interactive, educational and fun trips for school groups from around the UAE and now we are proud to have tailored our very popular mangrove tour to families.
Come with us on a magical experience, wading through the estuaries of the Arabian gulf. Learning about the inhabitants of the UAE's endangered mangrove forests. Find out how they are created and what makes them unique.
We guarantee that you will laugh, learn and take something (other than sand!) away with you.
We use a hidden location in Umm Al Quwain, so you will meet an Ecoventure employee nearby the abandoned UAQ airport (1 hour from Dubai) and we will drive in convoy.
The mangrove walk can be tailored to the group and could consist of a short walk to the mangroves and a small paddle in the estuary or for the more adventurous, we can wade across the channel and explore an island in the middle of the mangroves.
Very little. Clothes you are happy to get wet and dirty (There is lots of wet sand and mud to walk through!).
Very sturdy sandals or trainers that you are happy to get wet and muddy.
We can also provide nets and other equipment to help you investigate the wildlife more closely!
At this location we can finish somewhere you can buy food & drinks (hard and soft), so bringing money for the end of the trip would be advisable.
