The UAE is famous for its skyscrapers and grand hotels, its shopping malls and theme parks, but there are other things in the UAE besides big cities…. sandy seashores of course and vast deserts…. and the ancient Hajar mountains, which hold all sorts of surprises!

In Arabia we call them “wadis”. Very often they are dry, but when it rains they become special places, full of pools and plants, insects, birds and animals.
If you’re lucky you may meet Lizard and Toad who live there…..
