Desert
Explanation:

I think “Desert” is sufficient here and there is no need to be specific.

مسمى (العدامه) على المنخفض من الصحراء

الذي لا يسكنه البشر، حيث تنمو بعض الشجيرات وتتوافر فيه المياه في بعض الأحيان.والعدامه كما عرفها أهل الصحراء، هي أنسب مأوى للظباء لأنه يؤمن لها الاختباء من الانسان والحيوان وحر الشمس.
