As an integral part of desert life in Arabia, falconry goes back more than 2,000 years ago and is still extremely important to the heritage of Dubai. It has been practiced in the United Arab Emirates region for centuries, originally used for hunting in the harsh desert environment to supplement the Bedouin diet with meat, such as hare or houbara. As the National symbol of the UAE, the falcon still to this day is a highly respected icon of Emirati culture.
This is a unique opportunity to observe the world’s best-trained falcons and learn about these magical creatures in an authentic setting in a Royal Desert Retreat. During this interactive falconry experience, our professional falconers will guide you through both ancient and modern training techniques and even give you the chance to try fly a falcon to your glove.
Discover the local flavours and enjoy a freshly cooked Emirati breakfast in a traditional Bedouin camp before embarking on a beautiful desert safari through the UAE’s first national park. This is your opportunity to explore the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve in 1950’s vintage Land Rovers in search of native desert animals. This is the most carefully preserved wildlife area in Dubai, dedicated to protecting the natural beauty and biodiversity of the Arabian desert.
