Royal Falconry Training & Nature Safari
A splendid morning spent learning about falconry training in Dubai
Experience luxurious and private falconry adventure that takes you on a journey into the fascinating world of falcons and their cultural significance to the Emiratis and their heritage.
Watch in awe as the falcons swoop in the skies of the desert and a professional falconer showcases ancient and modern training techniques for hunting with falcons. Take part in the demonstration and have hawks, owls or falcons fly to your glove. The setting is one of the most exclusive and beautiful desert oasis in Dubai.
The experience gets elevated with a nature safari in a luxurious Range Rover and a gourmet breakfast at the world-renowned Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa.

Fantastic Experience - the staff made our experience five stars!
We were picked up on time and welcomed by James 007 who was a fantastic host from start to finish. From our pick up we were drove to the desert where our morning started with traditional headwear. Then we were taken in the old fashioned Range Rover to the falconry show which was great, following this we had breakfast, rode the camels and then went onto our desert safari tour. All round great experience which was only made better by James 007!
