Today I had the most incredible experience with Brian (guide) and his assistant Khan on my private falconry session. It was a very windy morning on the desert, but that did not deter Brian or Khan. Brian gave a thorough explanation and demos of how falcons and the cutest little barn owl are trained. Brian's kestrel, Kush, accompanied us. Don't... More

From the hotel pickup to the return, Werner, Kahn, and the raptors "made our day ". To go out into a desert preserve, view wildlife, be greeted by Kahn with dates and coffee, while sitting on a carpet under a tree in the desert listening to some of the raptors "talking" was simply a magical experience in a beautiful setting...

Private entry into an expansive desert conservation reserve with sightings of oryx and gazelle. The tour guide had an extensive knowledge of the area and of the birds of prey we held during the flight demonstration. The catering was excellent offering an extensive breakfast buffet. The visit to a falconry souk was very interesting.
