Authentic Desert Safari in vintage Land Rovers.
Learn about the cultural heritage of the UAE and sleep in Arabic stone dwellings in a Bedouin camp.
Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride with falcons.
Take a step back in time and experience Dubai as it was 50 years ago. Your professional Conservation Guide will escort you on a fascinating Dubai desert safari in a museum quality, vintage 1950’s Land Rover. These Series 1 Land Rovers were extensively used in the 1950’s and since then have become part of the UAE history. No other vehicle offers a more authentic desert safari experience to spot exotic local wildlife within the pristine Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve.
Watch the sun drop under the horizon as you watch a falcon soar around you. Your Bedouin camp, lit with the gentle flames of traditional lamps is nestled inside a private Royal desert retreat. We will demonstrate cultural activities such as henna tattoos, music, dance and bread and Arabic coffee making before enjoying a delicious dinner under the stars in an authentic Bedouin camp.
Relax in traditional majlis and enjoy top-quality shisha. Spend the night inside a traditional Arabic stone dwelling complete with mattress, pillows and sleeping bags.
The good news is that overnight Bedouin camp is only 10 minutes from the Hot Air Ballooning take-off point. Wake up in the desert just before sunrise to tick off the next experience on your bucket list. Since you are only minutes from the Hot Air Balloon take off site you can wake up later than passengers coming from Dubai. Once you arrive you will receive a safety briefing before climbing inside the balloon basket.
Feel your adrenaline race as your balloon drifts gently upward. Each basket holds up to 23 passengers and there’s plenty of space for you to sightsee as you fly. As you rise higher, marvel at the awesome sunrise views and hear interesting commentary from your pilot about the geology and wildlife of the protected Dubai Desert Conservation Reservation while you watch for roaming animals such as gazelle and camels.
The truly unique thing about flying with us is that you get to experience a world-first phenomenon. Imagine soaring above the Dubai desert with Peregrine falcons – the world’s fastest animal! Experience these magnificent creatures in full flight as you get uninterrupted 360-degree views from the Hot Air Balloon, over a kilometer above the desert. Flying around a Hot Air Balloon is the most spectacular falcon show on Earth (or at least above it!). How do we know the falcon will come back? Six months of innovative and intensive training and a very interesting journey from the Highlands of Scotland, via Umbria in Italy on their way to Dubai. Watch the video of how it was possible: Flying with falcons.
After the sunrise Hot Air Balloon, travel back to the Bedouin camp to enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet. Feast on an awesome breakfast that includes caviar, smoked salmon, Eggs Benedict, fresh fruit and so much more!
