UAE Bird Guiding
As of January 2022 we are struggling with availability of birdguides.
If you find yourself in Dubai, you can either rent a taxi for a half day or full day from Dubai Taxi, by ordering 24 hours in advance.
In 2019 the taxi rates are AED 900 for 6 hours and AED 1,800 for 12 hours.
Be prepared with instructions to the taxi driver, as none of the birding sites are known to them.
General rate is AED 2.000 for a full day out (US $ 545). This includes the guide in a four-wheel drive vehicle.
Less than full day, please contact guide for details.
This is for 1-3 persons, no additional cost if you are one, two or three persons in the car.

As of November 2022, Gary Burns is available for desert driving looking for the unique wildlife found in the deep dunes.
Not a bird-guide as such, Gary is an avid eBirder and photographer.
