Before the sun rises we will pick you up from your hotel to travel to the take-off point in the desert – not more than a 45-minute drive from the city. As you arrive, the ground crew will be preparing the balloon envelopes and baskets. After a quick safety briefing, you will gather around your basket while your Pilot begins the thrilling process of inflation. You will climb into the basket and before you know it, you will begin to peacefully float off the ground and ascend into the sky.
As you float up in the sky, the hues along the horizon begin to transform into beautiful shades of yellows and oranges. Depending on which direction you are facing, you will see the Arabian sun rising behind the Hajar mountains over the desert dunes. 4,000ft in the sky is one of the best places in the world to witness the beauty of the sunrise. Look out for Arabian oryx, gazelles or wandering camels in the sand dunes below. Every balloon flight is approximately 1 hour long.
The balloons land somewhere different in the desert every day depending on the wind. Everyone will attach the clips of their belts to the basket and embrace the landing position a few minutes before the balloon touches the ground. After landing, the Pilot will let you know when it’s the right time to climb out the basket. Watch as the other balloons land and how the ground crew professionally roll up the balloon envelope.
The adventure doesn’t end there! After your once-in-a-lifetime experience of the desert from up above, get ready to travel through the dunes in vintage Land Rovers to an authentic Heritage camp in a Royal desert retreat. These 1950’s Land Rovers were the first motorised vehicles introduced to the desert and have been resorted to their former glory.
New adventures always work up an appetite! Arrive at an authentic heritage camp to enjoy a 5-star breakfast in the heart of the desert. Relax in this beautiful setting and enjoy a delicious breakfast of eggs Benedict, shakshuka, salmon, caviar, halloumi cheese, fresh fruit, cold cut platters and more served to your table. Before heading back to the city, explore the authentic camp built out of natural materials like stone, wood and goat hair or sit back and relax in the traditional majlis. When you are ready your driver will take you back to the city.

After breakfast, embark on an adventure in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve on a wildlife drive in vintage Land Rovers. Spot native animals like Arabian oryx and gazelles and learn all about the fauna and flora of the Dubai desert. Your Conservation Guide will share stories of the desert and how this thriving ecosystem survives. You will soon see how the desert is teeming with wildlife! Drive on set tracks through the golden sand dunes and stop along the way at a Ghaf tree forest.
