A morning which epitomises luxury and authenticity, this is the crème de la crème of falconry experiences in Dubai! Set in an ultra-luxurious and exclusive oasis in a Royal desert retreat, spend a morning immersed in extraordinary falconry and interactive birds of prey demonstrations, followed by a gourmet breakfast and wildlife drive through the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve in Range Rovers.
Our professional falconers guide you through both ancient and modern training techniques with a focus on the latest hi-tech devices used for the competitive sport of falconry. Watch in awe as falcons swoop and dive for lures on drones and Bergwings, invented exclusively by our falconers. Learn about other birds of prey like hawks and desert eagle owls in an interactive performance where you will even get a chance to fly one of these majestic creatures to your glove.
Enjoy a gourmet breakfast spread of eggs benedict, eggs shakshuka, salmon, halloumi, caviar and a variety of cold cuts and fruit platters.
