 Creekaufwärts minimieren

Wer sich in Dubai nicht zwischen dem besten vieler Welten entscheiden kann, oder aber nur einen Tag Zeit hat, sollte sich mit dem Gedanken anfreunden, nach interessanten Dubai-Erkundungen in die weitere Umgebung des Flughafens zurückzukehren. Weit - in unserem Sinne - ist ohnehin kein Punkt Dubais vom Flughafen entfernt.
Fahrtzeiten hängen lediglich vom Verkehr ab. Und hier kann einen das bittere Los überall treffen.

Und das Ganze findet man 45 Autominuten ausserhalb der Tore Dubais.

Old men told of this place where water flowed from a rock, the perpetual spring fed by ancient underground lakes. Birds gathered in the dense trees, gazelle hid from the shimmering heat under matted palms, and occasionally even the hardened, elusive Arabian leopard was seen in the distant mountains.

The place took its name from the proudest of all dune dwellers - the Arabian oryx. Herds of these spear-horned antelope would appear out of the heat haze - nomadic bands seeking this place of shelter and respite. The people named the oasis after them, and 'Al Maha' came to be known far and wide...

"But even amongst the tribes of the desert, the selfishness of man prevailed. Wishing to control the life around him, he built his camp around the water, used it selfishly and diverted its course. The vengeful sands first covered the dry rock pools, then smothered the trees, and finally buried the encampment that had strangled the flow of water from the rock.

Through generations, young adventurers were lost in the shifting sands as they searched for signs of Al Maha. Many trekked over the buried place, only to fall next to their exhausted camels, a noble fate at the end of a fruitless journey...

"Confounded by the disobedience of a hunting falcon, one young man followed his bird's movements over the dunes, only to find it perched on a thin branch protruding through the sand. Approaching the bird, the young man's anger turned to curiosity when he noticed small green leaves sprouting from the slender branch. Knowing this was a sure sign of water below, the youth later returned with his brothers and together they dug away the layers of time.

Finally, after removing a wedge in a rocky ledge, the brothers watched as water bubbled out and began to wash the sands away, revealing the ancient walls of the camp. Soon, the lost oasis reformed...

"The brothers settled alongside the pools, vowing that never again would any man or animal of the desert be denied the source of all life. Palms and once-lost wild vegetation flourished around the ancient walls and rocky pools. Wild animals reappeared, but the surest sign of the rebirth of this fabled place was the return of the Arabian oryx, after which the oasis had been named."


" was here that we had come to seek solace and sanctuary, the resort defied imagination and surpassed every expectation, such harmony between man and nature, between earth and sky..."
