Full description
On this 5-hour program your guide will pick you up at your Dubai hotel and you’ll head off to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Enjoy a nature drive in search of the elusive houvara bustard, Arabian oryx, and sand gazelle.

Later, when you arrive at the Emirati Falcon Hunting Camp in the shade of an ancient ghaf tree, you’ll be welcomed in the traditional way with Arabic coffee and dates. The falconry experience begins with helping in the training of the greater spotted eagle, desert eagle owl, and Harris’s hawk.

All of these birds will be flown to the fist and you’ll be encouraged to participate, a truly unique opportunity. Next you’ll be one of the very few to participate in the most modern of all training techniques, when the staff flies a peregrine falcon, the planet’s fastest animal, to a drone.

As an optional add on, you might like to have breakfast at the luxurious Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa, or a picnic-style canapé breakfast in the comfort of the Falcon Camp.

WHAT EXPERIENCE I can recommend to anyone traveling to Dubai. Our guide was really an expert and could not only inform about the birds but also about the desert, the animals and Dubai in general. He is actually from Mexico City but has been working in Dubai for several years. It was really perfect.

Our experience began from the early pick up as one of the Falcons was to travel with us! Caesar was very knowledgeable and informative and we learned a lot about conservation in UAE. We were able to handle 3 of the 5 birds that Caesar had. In brief 2 Peregrine Falcons, Desert Eagle Owl, Harris Hawk and Greater Spotted Eagle. Each birds character and habits were explained in detail and the time spent ended all too soon. To be highly recommended as a personal and very unique experience. Well worth the early start.
