“Amazing & Educational - A must do thing”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

When I visited Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital, I was not sure what I would like about it. After all, hospitals are not the place I want to visit in my life. However, this hospital became the highlight of my trip!
I had never seen such a pet hospital before. It is the world’s largest and most advanced falcon hospital.
Do you believe if I say the hospital has X-ray room, Operation Theaters, ophthalmology unit, pox unit and an OPD section as well! Advanced endoscopy, laser surgery, complex orthopedic surgery for fractures are part of its regular activities. And yearly more than 7,000 falcons are received for examinations and treatment?

It also has a museum & the guide is very entertaining. The knowledge he gives us is quite insightful & educational and we get to know about the Falcon culture of the region, the importance of falcons and a glimpse into a world that few people see.
You can hold falcons in your own hands and pet them or watch them eat. Watch a Falcon's wound being cleaned be amazed at their color and behavior or learn the history of falconry.

I have written in detail about it on my blog and will upload a video as well.

Tip:- Guided tours have to be booked in advance, you can do via their website or by email. Reservations are mandatory and tickets are available online.Two packages available - with or without lunch.

“Well worth the visit”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Wholeheartedly agree with reviews praising and recommending a visit to this site. Very well organised and extremely informative. Falcons are truly magnificently regal birds, and getting up voles and personal with them is a memorable and wonderful experience. Be prepared to be very pleasantly surprised.
Our main tour guide was very funny and personable as well as interesting. It was also great to watch and listen to medical staff.
Great experience and very reasonably priced, recommend for whole family. They even provide clod drinks for free, and tour duration is a too short couple of hours!

“Falcons and Salukis”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This is called "out of the way". On E20 enroute to Sweihan from Abu Dhabi, this facility is multiple things: Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital, the Arabian Saluki center, a pet hospital, and a shelter for abandoned animals. We spent an entire morning here and were happily impressed and educated at the same time. Our guide was professional and entertaining, the facilities are first rate, and the animals are healthy and well cared for. This should be a "must see" when visiting Abu Dhabi. Cost for two adults is AED340.

If you are looking for a pet in AD (dog or cat), come to the Shelter first.
