Karakal Desert

Karakal Desert


Caracal (karakal) is a name that may mislead you; while many people may assume it is the name of a place in Central America or Africa, Caracal is a glorious desert in the heart of Iran. Caracals could only be found in Africa and Asia. In Kazakhstan, which is the northernmost place one can find Caracals, the population of this carnivore is limited due to the hard winters. In India, which is the easternmost habitat of the animal, it is introduced as a rare species. This cat is easily tamed.


Iran deserts are one of the main attractions when you think about traveling to Iran. Iran is home to many beautiful deserts and there are countless deserts around the central cities of Iran like Yazd, some of which are easy to access because they are next to Yazd and they are in good condition in terms of welfare services such as Shabahang Camp, Baran Camp and …


But to visit something more unique yet untouched and of course not too far from Yazd, go away about 120 km from Yazd to reach the beautiful and relaxing desert of Karakal or Sadegh Abad desert in Bafgh one of the cities of Yazd province.

The desert is located near the city of Bafq in Iran’s central Yazd Province. The name of this desert is derived from the Caracal wild cat living in the area. These cats have always attracted the attention of local people for their high intelligence and ability to be tamed. These cats have also been popular for hunting after being technically trained. Desert cats and other wildlife animals can be found in the heart of this golden desert.


As we have just said, the Karakal Desert is located in center of Iran and has long been the habitat of one of the most beautiful cats in Iran named Karakal. One of the reasons for the desert’s popularity is the existence of this cat. In this desert, you can achieve the ultimate peace of mind by combining the colors in this beautiful desert.

In the desert, you can literally disappear in to the horizon by watching the desert and the sky come together. The desert is a mysterious area that, despite its rugged appearance, is attractive to many tourists, from its colors to its moving sand hills. Karakal Desert in Yazd has another name which is Sadegh Abad Desert due to its proximity to Sadegh Abad village.


These days, tour managers have a special focus on the desert of Caracal, and organize tours of the desert to give the chance to tourists to watch these beautiful cats. These tours have also been warmly welcomed by tourists. Riding a camel, safari, motorcycle riding on golden sands, walking through palm trees, and staying in a traditional residence are all one can expect from a trip to the desert. We recommend that the tourists, who prefer to enjoy the silence of the desert, should have a trip to this desert. You can walk comfortably along this untouched desert.


You can also stay in the traditional accommodation in the desert and immerse yourself in the starry desert at nights. For travelers who are very interested in the beauty and silence of the desert, a trip to the Karakal Desert is highly recommended.

The most important achievement of the tourists to this destination is the peace and quiet that exists in this desert, because the desert is a source of silence and tranquility. The silence in desert, the starry sky at desert nights and the unknown world of the desert are just some of the features of this sandy land. The Karakal Desert in Yazd is also a special place of peace and quiet due to its distance from noisy centers such as big cities.
