Heritage Falconry and Safari
The day was exceptional from start to finish. Best way to see the real dunes. Knowledge of the falconer was excellent and friendly. Birds were magnificent. Food and set up in the desert was the best ever. The vintage land rover was brilliant and the headscarf and morning was amazing. I would go again easily. thank you to the team that made the morning so memorable.
Yesterday we spent a wonderful morning at The Platium Heritage falconry experience. We learnt a lot about falconry in the UAE, enjoyed a typical Bedouin breakfast, had a camel ride, then a desert safari in an original British Land Rover. Our driver and guide was very knowledgeable and all the staff were helpful and informative. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Dubai.
