So close, yet so far from the glitz and the glamour of the city. Now only a 30 minute drive from the center of Dubai! (Burj Khalifa) We collect you from your hotel within the urban area of Dubai or a specified meeting point and transfer you to the desert, where you'll enjoy a one hour flight. Fly with falcons as you watch a world-first demonstration from the balloon 3000ft in the air and watch these magnificent creatures soar around the balloon. Witness a breathtaking sunrise with the backdrop of the majestic Hajjar Mountains. Once we've touched down, you will be transferred to a desert camp in vintage 1950's Land Rovers for a gourmet breakfast of Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon, Caviar, bread selection and fruit.

They are closed during the summer. Maybe that's why you can't book.?
