After pre-dawn pickup from your Dubai hotel, journey into the desert by climate-controlled 4x4.
Arrive at the take-off site and watch your hot air balloon being inflated by the crew. Meet your pilot for a safety briefing, and climb into the basket.
Ascend into the sky and sail at approximately 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) above the Arabian Desert. Look for camels, gazelle, and oryx below as the sun illuminates the Hajar Mountains, and watch a falcon fly around your balloon in a spectacular demonstration.
Touch down and travel to a private desert reserve to freshen up and savor a gourmet breakfast of dishes such as hand-cut smoked salmon and caviar.
Afterward, enjoy a wildlife safari in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve by open-top, 1950s Land Rover. Look for oryx, gazelle, and other animals with tips from your guide before your experience ends at your Dubai hotel.
