    What to Expect
    Start your experience with a pickup from your centrally located Dubai hotel. Settle into your private, air-conditioned Range Rover with your driver and head out to a magical setting in the heart of the Dubai desert. Your destination is an exclusive, Royal desert retreat set amid rolling sand dunes. On arrival, meet a world-class falcon trainer and enjoy the rare opportunity to interact with highly trained falcons from an exclusive family collection. Witness a spectacular falcon show set next to a beautiful ghaf tree forest in the middle of the desert. Discover the history of this ancient practice and how it was used by the Bedouins to capture prey such as hares and small birds to supplement their diet with meat. The traditional custom has become revered in the UAE, and is now inextricably woven into local cultural traditions. 

    Learn about ancient and modern training techniques and watch spectacular demonstrations that illustrate the falcons’ power and agility. See them soar through the air and dive to collect lures and learn about how high-tech devices like drones and bergwings are used to train the falcons.  Get a chance to swing the lure or get a falcon to fly yourself! After this interactive experience, enjoy an exhilarating guided drive in a Range Rover through the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a magnificent national park established to protect local wildlife. Cruise through the dunes as you look for exotic animals such as Arabian oryx and gazelles.

    Continue to the stunning Al Maha Desert Resort located in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Enjoy a scrumptious morning feast overlooking the Arabian desert — the perfect finale to your adventure. Your trip concludes in Dubai with a drop-off at your hotel in your luxury Range Rover.
