Full description
On this private 5-hour program, head to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve in a 4WD vehicle. Enjoy a nature drive in search of the houbara bustard, Arabian oryx and sand gazelle. At the Emirati Falcon Hunting Camp you’ll be welcomed with Arabic coffee and dates. The falconry experience begins as you help to train a greater spotted eagle, desert eagle owl and Harris’s hawk. All of the birds will be flown to your gloved fist. Participate in a modern training technique: fly a peregrine falcon, the planet’s fastest animal, to a drone. As an optional add-on, you can enjoy breakfast at the luxurious Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa, or a picnic-style canapé breakfast at the falcon camp.

    A wonderful experience. Our driver/guide Khan was great- knowledgeable, friendly. Answered all our questions and provided us with so much information. Falcon flying was unbelievable - both Khan and Mohammed so encouraging, and it was a real privilege to fly the birds: something we shall never forget. And a beautiful breakfast to finish with. A great morning and great value for money

    Excellent experience and Khan was a great guide. We were picked up on time and drove out to the desert where we saw the sun rise over the sand dunes, then saw gazelles and an oryx before a great experience with the birds. Khan and his assistant explained how the birds were trained, how they are looked after and we were able to hold them which was a fabulous experience. It was definitely worth the money and anyone interested in a hands on adventure with animals should do this trip. Khan was very informative, friendly and professional. 10 out of 10 from us!

    This was a super morning out in the desert with two great guys, Sarab and Mohammed, who did everything they could to make the experience memorable. We felt paying for the private tour was well worth it as we got to handle 5 different types of bird - Falcon, two types of Owl, a Hawk and (the real treat) an Eagle! We didn't expect that variety and Sarab and Mohammed continued to fly the birds (and doing tricks with us) until we got all the photos and videos we wanted. As promised in the itinerary we got to see Gazelle and Oryx and on the journey out Sarab threw in a quick trip to the camel racing arena where we saw hundreds of camels getting ready for exercising. A truly memorable day out and the highlight of our Dubai trip, made especially enjoyable by Sarab and Mohammed. Definitely recommended.
