City life has its perks, but there’s nothing like fresh green pastures to lift your spirits – particularly when filled with cute animals and birds. Whether you’re looking for things to do with the kids or just fancy a taste of nature, a trip to RAK Natures Treasure Museum makes the perfect day out.
Set in 20 acres, just off the RAK airport road, this inner-city farm brings a little slice of rural life from daily hustle and bustle. Besides working fruits and vegetable farms, there’s a petting zoo, duck pond, equestrian centre, natural history museum, fish farming pond, gemstone mining, goat playground, Natural salt cave and much more.
The first sight of the interiors floors us!
A lavish display of sea corals, natural gems, precious stones, rare rocks, fossils and skulls, preserved fauna, exotic spices and an array of artifacts that depict the lifestyle of yesteryears
From ancient times, the salt room or salt house therapy at the leading spas is considered an effective therapy to deal with a number of health problems whether internally or externally.
The walls of the cave are caked with a dense crust of various salt rocks and the floor is spread with herbs. Away from city life, the RAK Natures Museum offers natural salt cave to immerse yourself completely in the dimly lit and relaxing salt room spa, no place is better than the salt room for a session of blissful meditation.
The lure of lush green pastures can be pretty strong for city-dwellers this time of the year. The unending greenery of cornfields, cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce and bottle gourds gives you taste of the rural life which you normally see only on television.
The spectacle of hundreds of pigeons bobbing and huddling on the rooftop of this ranch is irresistible. A visit to this queer ranch which is also the logo to RAK Natures treasures is one of the pleasures enjoyed by most visitors.
If you ever wanted to get close to a cuddly chick or meet a loveable lamb this is the place to be. There is a nice skywalk for children to actually watch the animals from the top. You can befriend Horse, donkey, emu, pigeons, chicken, native sheep, peacock, turtle, flamingos and more to come
