About


About About About
We are a one-of-a-kind social club in the UAE. We find adventure in everything we do to put a new spin on how you spend your spare time. Whether you're a resident looking for something new or a tourist that wants to do something different and get a real local experience, we have something for you.
We love to get sweaty and go hiking. We love to get wet by going scuba diving, snorkeling, midnight swims or hitting up a water park as a bunch of friends. We love to go out to the hottest places and be funky and fun. We love to get the sand between our toes when we have a camping trip in the middle of the desert. We love the culture and traditions of the UAE and showing members what it's really about - what the Emiratis do today and what their ancestors have done for thousands of years.
We do all these things at low prices or even free. We want travelers to see that they don't have to break the bank when they come to the UAE and we want to give residents something to look forward to every weekend without spending half their pay cheque.
We hold ourselves to a social responsibility for having all these amazing things at our finger tips. So we inspire our members to give back. We give thanks to the needy, the environment, the wildlife and the stray pets by giving our time and effort as a group.

Mohamed Al Hajeri

Mohamed comes from the UAE desert. He's an experienced safari guide who loves to see everyone enjoy the UAE's culture and all that the country has to offer. You will find Mohamed around the campfire at night telling stories that leave us all in awe. We encourage you to give Mohamed a topic and he will have a story for it!

Marianna Wright

Co-Founder

Marianna is a Canadian journalist who fell in love with the UAE and decided to make it home. She is passionate about helping others find fun and unique ways to have an adventure. Marianna likes connecting with others and helping others find new friends. Marianna will be found chasing her salukis, Falah and Lilly, (a native dog breed) up and down the mountains while leading hikes across the emirates.

Saad Suliman

Organizer

Saad is from Pakistan and although he is banker, his compassion and his love for adventure drove him to join UAE Explorers in his spare time. He has been organizing events ever since! You will find Saad as the one you can rely on. When he's not giving people rides and chatting with newbies to make sure everyone is happy, he's bringing amazing Pakistani foods and sweets!

Eddie

Camping Specialist

Eddie is an Indian national who has grown up in the Gulf, but moved to the UAE a few years ago. He's out every weekend enjoying the great outdoors with his loyal companion, Poncho the Pug. He likes taking people out camping and promoting environmental clean up after enjoying nature. Eddie won't be found burning energy walking on hikes, but he will drive beside us when he can!
