This weeks blog post is here to give you an idea of the places in the Emirates you can visit to experience wildlife. I know a lot of people do not condone zoos, but the places on this list are making tremendous efforts to boost conservation and ensure that these animals are around for future generations to experience. The attractions listed in this post all offer an opportunity to see animals that you would otherwise never get to see, and are great places for educating children.

When you think of the United Arab Emirates you generally tend to think of the glitz & glamour of Dubai & there is no greater symbol of this than the Burj Khalifa – currently the tallest building in the world, towering 828m over the desert landscape below…

…Despite this I want to explore the architectural wonders of the capital city Abu Dhabi. I think my interest in architecture stems from being driven through London as a child & marveling at the scale and scope of the man-made structures surrounding me – fast forward thirty years and here we are in the Middle East exploring Abu Dhabi!¬†Each time that I visit the capital I am astounded by the architecture on display, and have devised a driving tour that takes in all of these amazing buildings in one simple route.
