All reviews beautiful birds waiting room quail birds of prey guide hassan hour tour unique experience first hand tour starts well worth the trip interesting place to visit highlight of our trip two hours interesting facts small museum behind the scenes local culture
Do go to this amazing place. You can see falcons up close and personal and have a guided tour around and about what they are all about. Falcons are highly prized and fascinating birds. Really worth the trip
There was a tour of the facilities and a talk about falconry and how it operates in the UAE, with a chance to see some of the patients and observe a procedure (a falcon having his talons seen to, so not grisly at all).
Pre book the tour to Falcon hospital online and we choose 2pm slot as we need time to travel from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Get on to the taxi and make sure the driver know the place , the taxi cost from town to Falcon...More
Good day out if you are interested in birds, wildlife or animal welfare. This is also an extremely good opportunity to learn about the national animal of the UAE.
At first when we first arrived it was somewhat disorganised at reception as several Falcons and...More
We visited here based on its good TA rating. It was definitely worth it.
Make sure you book up in advance as numbers are limited.
The guides were brilliant, and after a good introduction to the history of falconry you go into the main hospital...More
Very interesting place to visit and a great organised tour of the facility. The Hospital staff member conducting the tour was very informed and spoke very passionately about the about the role of the Hospital, the falcons and the other animals housed at the Hospital....More
Highly recommend this two hour tour. The staff and guides are caring and kind. The guests are quickly part of the action- up close and personal with the falcons and hospital staff. It’s so great that you see it up close instead of strictly behind...More

Whilst I appreciate that this is an elderly post it may be helpful to others to get a price comparison. I had emailed the hospital prior to arriving in Abu Dhabi and was told I could book just the tour directly with the for around 178 dirhams. I waited u til I arrived as I wasn’t sure about other things I wanted to do and which was the best order, but having sotprted this our hotel concierge made me a booking for the very next day at the same price. We travelled about thirty minutes by taxi each way. Even including the price of the taxis, 60 each journey for two of u, we were way better off booking directly compared with the 370 per person quoted by one tour operator. I don’t think that price included a lunch. So make your own way. The hospital will organise taxi returns for you and save some cash for another fab experience. Or donate to the hospital!
We have 2 days in Muscat and 1.5 days in Abu Dhabi on a cruise and then we plan to drive around Oman and UAE ourselves after disembarking to see some more of the countries. Please advise if this itinerary is doable and desirable. Open to suggestions before I finalize all hotels. We are into scenery, adventure, animals and unique experiences that we can't do anywhere else. Day 1 - museums in Sharjah Day 2 - Sharjah to Liwa or Sohar and explore (please advise of best border crossing) Day 3...More

Falconing/Camels/Horses/big cats?? (0 Replies)
Hi all, I will be in AUH for a couple of days in Sept. I am super keen to see some falconing, racehorses (endurance I presume) or camels. I am a keen photographer and would love the chance to get out into the local areas rather than stay in the tourist areas. I'd also love to chance upon big cats, yes I know they are illegal and I am absolutely against them as pets, but I know they exist and from a photography/personal journalistic view, I am interested. Or even better, at a big cat rescue...More
