United Arab Emirates Resort to Offer 'Hunting' for $3K Per Day

Long known as the playground for the rich and famous, the United Arab Emirates is about to add another group to its impressive list of tourists: hunters.

This September the Barari Hunting Resort will open to hunters seeking to take oryx, gazelle, and deer. Hunters will also have the possibility of taking certain bird species. The resort is actually located near Al-Ain, the second largest city in the capital Abu Dhabi, and is owned by the Abu-Dhabi based Mourouj Hotels and Resorts.

MH&R Managing Director Tarek Elsherif told media outlets that hunting will run in "coordination with the UAE Environment [Agency] and it will of course take into account safety and security." Elsherif added that the resort is "going to be a very boutique hotel," and that it will be open on a "seasonal basis, from September to about April."

Prices are set to start at US $3,673 per day.
