What to expect:
The package allows taking photographs with birds of prey. Run by an experienced safari guide and falconer (and accompanying falcon), into the heart of the desert outside Dubai, visitors are bound to come across wildlife on this relaxed drive, making this the entertaining family outing.
During a 90-minute, interactive experience patrons can personally handle and fly some of the birds, assisted by a professional falconer. Small group size ensures a feeling of exclusivity and guests will learn in-depth facts about the birds, their behavioural patterns and biological makeup. Participants will be shown both traditional and modern falconry training techniques and will gain a better understanding of the importance of falconry in Arabia.
Feel the velvety-soft feathers of an owl, have a hawk gently alight on a gloved fist and marvel at the breathtaking speed and agility of a falcon as its swoops down at the lure almost within touching distance
