Let's Go

Scour the protected areas of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve looking for Arabian wildlife. Get a good demonstration of falconry and learn a few tricks and important techniques before flying a falcon from your hand. Opt for the breakfast at AL Maha Resort to end the experience with a yummy note.

Your driver guide will pick you up from your Dubai hotel and drive you straight to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve in a 4×4 that is air-conditioned (Usually Jeep wrangler). During the 40 -60 minute long drive your guide will explain the importance of Falconry in the Emirati heritage and how it helped the forefathers of the nation in many ways. You will also learn how these majestic birds were used by the Bedouin tribes to hunt for meat that was to be included in their diet.

Upon reaching the reserve, you will experience a wildlife drive throughout the sand dunes of this protected area. Spot animals like desert hare, the uncommon Arabian Oryx, Gazelles and many other desert species while listening to a breakdown of the steps taken to preserve these precious animals and plants that call this dry land their home. Next up, you and your loved ones can enjoy an interactive falconry experience in which you will be introduced to falcons. Admire their majestic stance and continue with the training session. Put on a falconry glove and learn the techniques to fly a falcon from your hand. See a live demonstration of different falconry techniques ranging from the ancient to the modern, learn about the birds’ hunting skills and see the birds in action. Once your 2 hour session is over you will be dropped back to your hotel in Dubai signaling the end of your exciting falconry experience with wildlife drive.

With Breakfast: If the breakfast option is chosen, you will be driven to the chic and modern Al Maha desert Resort after your falconry session. Tucked amid the sands, this resort’s Al Diwaan restaurant allows you to dine Al Fresco, with the desert spanning ahead of you or inside, comfortably cooled by the air-conditioner. Savor the views of the desert landscape while dining on an international buffet of omelets, mezze, pancakes, etc complemented with fresh juice, tea and coffee. The breakfast is an excellent way to end off the falconry experience with wildlife drive.
