“Return to the Falconry - My No. 1 Experience in Dubai”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

I was keen to share the falconry experience with my travel companions this time. I had visited it two years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The team at Royal Shaheen Events can organise transport for you which was quoted to me at AED 400. We were picked up in time. The ride from Dubai, Deira took 1h 20mins. At the time of reservation, I was in touch with both Royal Shaheen and Banyan Tree Al Wadi to add a dinner after the falconry display. If you intend to stay for dinner after one of the activities, please consider that your driver will charge you extra for waiting time.

The falconry display ran from 4.30 - 6pm and we agreed with our driver that he would wait until 8pm for which he charged an additional but reasonable AED 150.

Our experience started with a visit to the enclosure where the professional falconer talked about the differences between a hawk from the American desert and a peregrine falcon. The two birds were later flown and visitors could interact and take pictures with the hawk. We learnt so many interesting facts about these fascinating animals. Our falconer was very passionate about her work and sharing the knowledge. We finished the visit with an encounter with the two desert owls Yahoo and Google.

It's a unique learning experience and a great way to spend an afternoon in the desert. There are plenty of picture opportunities with the birds and the stunning surrounding landscape. It's a kids-friendly activity, too.

A free buggy ride will be organised if you have a reservation at one of the resorts' restaurants.

“Animals of the desert”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

If you like to explore natural habitats you will enjoy a visit here, but be warned, you may not see much wildlife. We were the first car into the reserve and were rewarded with many wildlife sightings.

“Magnficent Oryx”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Saw the Orys at the Desert Conservation reserve and were really fascinated. The place looks to be very well managed and the population growth of these animals formerly close to extinction is remarkable.

“Sand, sand, and more sand”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

What a well-maintained conservation area filled with an amazing collection of animals and birds. Sunset over the sand dunes is spectacular and the little oasis sections a pleasure to the eye. A definite "to do" in Dubai.
