Private jeep trip with my husband and 10 year old son to the Dubai Desert Conservation Area. Eagle perched in the back. Amazing early morning in the Dubai desert. Learn how the birds are trained then you get to fly an owl , hawk and an eagle numerous times. So cool having them land on your gloved arm. Well worth the cost and the early start.

An activity that MUST NOT BE MISSED in Dubai! This was such a wonderful experience and activity to do. We have learned so much from Werner and Khan. Werner was very knowledgeable with these birds of prey(history of falconry) and the area itself. It was nice to see both traditional way of exercising these birds and the modern way as well. You will not be disappointed! THIS IS A REALLY "MUST DO"!!!!

For anyone looking for a personalized and extensive encounter with these birds, an outing with Royal Shaheen is the way to do it. The falcon shows included in package tours tend to be only one bird, and there is no guarantee you'll get to fly or hold it; the falconers also have varying degrees of experience. If you're interested in the falcons themselves or just want a more private outing in beautiful scenery, I can't recommend this tour more highly. (Even if you're not into falcons, it's a fun and truly unique experience.)

Booking and pick up were seamless, and the experience was even better than we'd hoped for -- beautiful morning light in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve; a chance to see and fly 5 birds up close (Desert eagle owl, Peregrine falcon, Altai saker falcon, Greater spotted eagle, Harris's hawk); friendly, experienced, and very knowledgeable guides/hosts, Werner and Khan.

Also recommend the optional breakfast as a relaxing and enjoyable end to the experience before heading back to the city - it's a nicely appointed hotel overlooking the dunes and an oasis.

Would do it again, and have already recommended to several friends.

We booked the Traditional Interactive Falconry Experience with breakfast at Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa.

It was a unique and fantastic experience. Werner and Khan were very friendly and we learned a lot about birds and wildlife in general.

Werner presented us not only falcons, but also different owls and an eagle. We could see them fly, hunt and feed and hold them on our arms.

The breakfast at the desert resort is delicious und the view from the balcony is breathtaking.
