We spent an amazing morning in the desert learning about and handling birds of prey: falcons, eagles, owls and hawks. Our guide Cesar was an actual falconer, and his respect and love for the birds, as well as his deep knowledge, made for a fascinating and enjoyable morning. Unlike the very brief falconry demonstration you get on the typical Dubai desert safari, this is an in-depth, small group (in our case, 2-person) experience, which gives you an opportunity to see and interact wit the birds up close. The setting, a grove of gaf trees in a desert reserve, is magical in itself--big trees, shade, and the sounds of bird calls all around you. This experience is not cheap, and requires commitment (early morning pickup and an hour-long drive), but for us it was absolutely worth it. We give this experience our highest recommendation.

We enjoyed a terrific morning doing the Falcon Safari led by Cesar this past weekend. Cesar was incredibly knowledgeable, and we learned so much about a sport and aspect of Arab culture that we knew nothing about. We  have seen Falcon shows before, but this was a very different experience - seeing and holding the birds of prey in a small group setting, and having a chance to actually see the differences between the different types of birds. We learned not only about falconry, but also many different aspects of the desert ecosystem. I would highly recommend this experience for anyone, including families with children. It's a very unique experience.

This Private tour was excellent. If you want to get up close and personal with the birds then this is for you. Our tour guides Caesar and Rahim are extremely knowledgeable and have a great attitude for managing a private experience. After our interactive an informative session in the desert our tour included the breakfast at the Marriot with our reservation. This is wonderful as our tour time was chilly in the desert in the morning so a cup of coffee at the resort was welcoming. Shutout to Caesar and Rahim
