Safari Organized in Maranjab Desert

Safari Organized in Maranjab Desert

A special committee has been set up in Isfahan Province to organize safari and off-road adventure activities in Maranjab Desert to prevent any harm to the region's environment.
“The committee is tasked with monitoring and coordinating desert tourism in Isfahan to protect the environment and its natural resources,” IRNA quoted Hossein Ansari, the head of Isfahan's Safari Club, as saying.  
On the sidelines of a visit to Maranjab Desert, Ansari expressed concern that without proper management and planning, the desert will lose its pristine condition and diverse animal species. To top it off, the chairman added that off-road vehicles can be a source of pollution in the desert and also trigger “migration of animal species” and "a change in the desert ecosystem”.
"Under organized plans, however, more tours can enjoy the adventure and tourists attractions of the desert without inflicting damage on the environment," he said.  Maranjab, one of the most beautiful desert areas of central Iran, is located in Aran-Bidgol County, north of Isfahan Province. It takes about an hour to get to the desert from the county.
In terms of vegetation, the desert is very rich. The main vegetation consists of salt-friendly plants, including tamarisk trees.
The desert offers a variety of tourist attractions, including Shah Abbasi Caravanserai, Salt Lake, Sargardan (wandering) Island and sand dunes.
Amid the vast desert, visitors can access water, fuel and other amenities at Shah Abbasi Caravanserai, which is also called a fort.
Maranjab Desert annually hosts over 100,000 domestic and foreign travelers.
