Tour with Breakfast
Small-group falconry experience and breakfast
Falconry and wildlife are inextricably bound in the UAE desert but don’t usually feature on Dubai’s standard desert tours. This tour is different: It lets you focus on the animals that are key to the landscape and its history. Take a wildlife safari in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and join a falconry session to experience a falcon flying from your hand. Upgrade to include breakfast at a luxe desert resort.
What to Expect
Book your desired option and after early pickup from your Dubai hotel, travel to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve by climate-controlled 4WD vehicle.

Hear about Emirati desert traditions and falconry en route and then set off on a wildlife drive. Cross the dunes to look for the elusive Arabian oryx, gazelle, hares, monitor lizards, and other animals, and learn about the reserve’s work in protecting them.

Next, enjoy a group falconry interaction with birds, such as falcons or kestrels, from a prized collection. Don a glove and fly a bird from your hand to collect a lure and return to you. See training in action and learn how the Bedouin traditionally used these magnificent birds for hunting.

Afterward, return to Dubai, or if you’ve upgraded, visit the luxury Al Maha Desert Resort for breakfast overlooking the dunes. See the Itinerary for sample dishes.

Either way, your tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel.
