Slow your pace and take in the beauty of the desert as you hike through Al Wadi Nature Reserve, guided by our Activity Officers who are on hand to bring your attention to the birds and micro-life of the desert. The smaller creatures of this region are equally as fascinating as the larger animals that you will encounter.
Be transported back in time when you pass through our traditional Bedouin “Khan Zaman” Tent and discover the ancient medicinal uses of the plants you will encounter along your walk through the desert, en-route to the Safran Tower. Once arrived, you will enjoy an un-interrupted view of Wadi Khadeeja, in which the resort is situated.
A short drive from Banyan Tree Al Wadi brings you to Al Janas Mountain, where you can choose to walk up to the Peak and discover an ancient hidden village or to take a moderate meander into the heart of the majestic Hajar Mountains, following the valley floor and passing amongst giant boulders as you go. Unusual geological formations will capture your imagination and will add mystery to your discovery of this unique mountain ecosystem.
