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.

    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.

    Amazing experience with tour guides and falconers Sarab and Raheem. Really knowledgeable about the birds and explained to us all our questions. Made it a really enjoyable experience and a once in a lifetime day out. You won’t regret it. We saw beautiful birds and also the gazelle and oryx in the nature reserve.

    The early start is 100% worth it. Our guide Amin was timely, knowledgeable and great company. The desert at sunrise was amazing and the birds we flew each had their own personalities. We are thankful for the photographic skills and have beautiful memories with video and photo reminders. This trip exceeded all our expectations thank you so much for creating an Arabian adventure for us today
