Full description
Your balloon adventure starts out with an early morning pick-up at your hotel. Then, head out before sunrise to the desert to begin a 4-hour adventure!

You’ll float above the Arabian Desert for about an hour in the rising morning sun. Marvel at the speed of the fastest animal on earth, the Peregrine falcon, as expert falconers put on a falconry show from the balloon in flight. In addition to seeing giant red sand dunes you’ll be on the lookout for camels, wild gazelles, vivid green oases, date farms, and the ever-changing shadows on the desert landscape. Keep a look out for the mighty Arabian oryx in their natural habitat.

Once you have landed, drive to a private desert conservation reserve and freshen up in the clean, private bathrooms. Enjoy a scrumptious breakfast of delicacies such as hand-cut smoked salmon and caviar, a fruit platter and more. 

After the end of this magical ride you’ll be transferred back to the city and dropped off at your hotel.

Unfortunately, the start was a bit bumpy because the pick-up time was not clear at the beginning. The message comes here late, we were informed at the reception, because everything has to be coordinated first. We then received the email at 6:30 p.m. the previous evening. As uncertain as it initially seemed to us, it became more professional afterwards. We were looked after very well. The guides were all very open and friendly. Everything was explained to us in peace and we felt very well cared for. The balloon ride was unique. Especially in combination with the falcon show. Really great and recommendable.

We did this tour on 3 hours sleep and would not have missed it for the world. The peace and quite of the desert was fantastic. The pilot and the falconer were very professional and added to the experience. Breakfeast at the camp was a nice surprise and the food was terrific. The camel ride although sort was a treat and something completely different.

Up up and away

The company is very professional and safety conscious. That’s the best a part for me. The captain peter was very experienced and this mornings ride was difficult due to the wind which was the reason I am thinking the ride was short. We landed at 29 Kph safe but hard landing. Happy to recommend them save for the terrible bus ride out , about 45 minutes . We were stuck at the back of a very uncomfortable ride. The other minor note was the climbing into the basket it was a little difficult for us. We were the oldest guests and got no help climbing in. It was a little undignified and quick. Still will do it again. Thanks captain peter.
