A beautiful hike at Wadi Shees with interesting life stories from Moazz.

Very good experience. Moaz is very experienced and well explained everything.

Amazing experience. I really enjoyed the event, Moaz is very experienced and knowledgeable in his field. He took time to listen to everyone and answered everyone's questions. We were lucky, it was cloudy, and it would have been little difficulty had it been sunny. Looking forward to the next hike event in Fujairah

We all traveled to Rockey Hills where we discovered several desert flora and trees, which our group leader Mr. Moaz described in detail. Additionally, he talked about his encounter and the animals he discovered within the camara. The protection of nature and wildlife would undoubtedly benefit from this kind of experience and understanding.

Beautiful experience , learned a lot from Mr Moaz and looking forward to more wonderful and informative experiences with emirates natures wwf


Please note that events may be cancelled or rescheduled due to updated safety guidelines from the government. We will try our best to keep you informed of any changes as early as possible. Thank you for your understanding and support.
