UAE: Al Badayer Desert Camp Project Kicks Off

The Sharjah Investment and development Authority (Shurooq) has commenced the implementation of Al Badayer Desert Camp project, valued at Dh45 million, which it aims to build into one of its premium leisure and adventure destinations in Sharjah.

The Al Badayer Desert Camp project includes an array of amenities and facilities, including its urban resort, desert lodge, restaurant and cafés. A main feature is its amphitheatre which will host live activities and multiple entertainment events. Additional facilities also include a mosque, recreational tents, shops, kiosks, turrets and shaded parking areas for cars and buses.

Al Badayer Desert Camp project is a 40-minute-drive away from the city of Sharjah and once completed will give visitors the opportunity to explore the wilderness.

“Al Badayer Desert Camp project is one of Shurooq’s foremost desert and leisure tourism projects in the UAE, said Marwan Bin Jassem Al Sarkal, CEO of the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority. “Its importance stems from the fact that it is located within one of Sharjah’s and UAE’s most popular locations, where Al Badayer is renowned for being a premium destination for desert adventurers, 4x4 enthusiasts and multiple safari tour providers.

By providing such an array of amenities and state-of-the-art facilities adjacent to this unique location, we aim to promote tourism in the middle region of Sharjah and across the emirate in general.”

Shurooq is developing several leisure and tourist ventures in Sharjah, the most recent of which is the Maleeha Archaeological and Eco-tourism project which was launched at the beginning of this year.
