Full description
Catch the rising sun at 4,000 feet on an airborne adventure above the Dubai desert. See the vast expanse of golden sand dunes from the comfort of a hot-air balloon flight. Look down at camels roaming the sands, galloping gazelles and the mighty Arabian Oryx in their natural habitat. Let some of the world's most experienced pilots take you on the ride of a lifetime.

On landing, drive to a private desert conservation reserve, where you will have the chance to freshen-up in clean, private bathrooms. Feast from a scrumptious selection of delicacies such as hand-cut smoked salmon and caviar during a gourmet breakfast.

Then, head out into the conservation reserve in museum-quality, open-top 1950s Land Rovers. These iconic vehicles were the first to traverse the desert 6 decades ago. With an experienced guide at the wheel, set off through the beautiful Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and experience a protected haven for desert wildlife.

Prepare for the activity

Important information
Know before you go
• The entire activity takes approximately 6 hours, with limited access to rest rooms
• The local tour operator will strive to have your balloon in the air by sunrise, but this cannot always be guaranteed
• The balloon flies with the wind and this determines the direction and distance, so the views differ from flight to flight. Visibility is completely dependent on weather conditions
• The exact return time to the hotel or meeting point is dependent on where you land and the traffic conditions in the city
• Women who are more than 3 months pregnant, and anyone with injuries or recent surgeries in their limbs or back are not permitted to fly

The whole trip was perfect and enjoyable.

Our first time experience the hot air balloon ride. It was perfect and we enjoy the whole day trip to desert safari by the antique land rover. We get to see animals that we had never seen in our country. The crews were all friendly and kind too. Thank you again. We hope to take the hot air balloon ride again one day.

What an experience!!!

This was the highlight of my trip to Dubai. I would strongly recommend everyone to do this if they’ve never tried it before! Everything about the trip was perfect...the balloon ride, salmon & caviar breakfast followed by desert jeep safari. The pilot in the air, food waiters & Jacob, our safari guide - everyone of them were a credit to the overall trip experience.

Amazing experience, well recommended!

Amazing experience, although our original booking was cancelled due to bad weather conditions, the company/partner agency helped re-scheduled effortlessly. Not often you get to see the sun rise over the desert in a hot air balloon. Well recommended and a definite must-do! The staff were very informative about the schedule of the day, and the pilot was very clear on safety from getting into the balloon and during landing.
