Absolutely the best thing we did in Abu Dhabi, hands down. If you have any desire to learn more about Falcons and Falconry this is a must-do. Our guide, Hassan, was incredibly knowledgeable but just as importantly, funny! He was able to keep a crowd that spoke at least four different languages, engaged for the entire tour. It was amazing to be up close and personal to witness a bird “pedicure” and also to watch a feeding from very close up. Even watching a surgery in action was amazing and shows how much these birds are really cared for.

I can’t say it enough: do this tour!

The tour of the Falcon Hospital was wonderful! So interesting! The group was small, and our guide Hassan was great. We were able to see a minor procedure being performed on a falcon and actually hold one. Really great fun and so informative. The facility is immaculate, and you can tell how much the staff care for the birds.
FYI- Study the map if you are driving there for the first time. Getting there is a bit tricky but worth it. I recommend giving yourself a few extra minutes.

This really surprised me at how wonderful the tour was. I didn't know what to expect and this was a real teaching moment. Whether you think you like falcons or not, it does not matter as by just hearing , holding and watching the birds, you will appreciate their strength and place in the Arab world. The guide at the hospital was really wonderful for answering questions and telling us about the history. The tour took about 2 hours and you definitely need to book ahead.

I was most impressed by the Falcon Hospital. The tour was excellent and we were able to watch a procedure in the operating theatre. Afterwards we were able to hold the birds and one participant was able to feed one. These are magnificent animals and are very well cared for here.

Best place to visit. A bit of a trip, but this visit gave me great insight into the world of falconry. Extremely educational. Watched a surgical procedure and got to feed a falcon on my wrist!!! A real adventure!!!

Twice they saved my kitty and puppies. If you care and I mean REALLY CARE for your furry children, drive to AD no matter which emirate are you in because this is the only place that does it not for the money and not for the commission but our of love. The process are VERY reasonable and the care is amazing. Finest Veterinary care in the UAE.

Fantastic and informative trip. Well worth an afternoon spent. Our guide, Hasan, was informative and funny. The tour was jam packed with information about the hospital and the birds themselves. Would 100% recommend you come here

A fantastic tour of the falcon hospital and surrounding facilities. A big thank you to our guide, Hasan, who was very informative and made the visit enjoyable with his friendly and fun conversation. This is a must do for those interested in finding out more about UAE culture. I would especially recommend it to those with curious younger children as you get to see a minor (non gory) procedure on a falcon as well as the falcons all lined up in the waiting room. There’s also the opportunity to hold a falcon.

An excellent way to spend a couple of hours.

This has referrence to the recent death of our puppy in this hospital. I dont know what happend in between the 6 hours since admission but I know we only brought the puppy there for diagnostics and he was just vomiting part of what he is eating, has still the appetite and was not even weak. I dont aim to put the name of the hospital in a bad state but I would like to ask your kind consideration in modifying your policies on your “PROCEDURE ROOMS”, that you may have the option that ONE OWNER CAN BE WITH THEIR PET DURING PROCEDURE. As other pets are more comfortable seeing their owner; thus it will decrease their anxieties and stress. As an owner, I would be calmer and comfortable seeing that my pet is well taken cared of. I hope you will consider changing this as you are an advocate to good health of all animals.

PS: may i suggest that your staff would also be kind and soft to all animals as those pets are not just “PETS” they are part of a family.

I hope you will consider this. THANK YOU!

If you want to do something more local then this is a great side trip when in Abu Dhabi. The tour takes you through the facility and you get to hold a falcon. We also got to hold a small owl which was very cute. The guide is very engaging and the staff that shows the hospital area was very nice. Learned a lot about falcons and their care. We got to feed a falcon - very strong beaks!

This is not a normal tourist attraction so don’t read too much into the negative reviews. This is a working animal hospital. It is also a distance outside of the city center so allow time for a taxi or Uber. It shows up well on google maps.
