Full description
Catch the rising sun at 4,000 feet on an airborne adventure above the Dubai desert. See the vast expanse of golden sand dunes from the comfort of a hot-air balloon flight. Look down at camels roaming the sands, galloping gazelles and the mighty Arabian Oryx in their natural habitat. Let some of the world's most experienced pilots take you on the ride of a lifetime. On landing, drive to a private desert conservation reserve, where you will have the chance to freshen-up in clean, private bathrooms. Feast from a scrumptious selection of delicacies such as hand-cut smoked salmon during a gourmet breakfast. Then, head out into the conservation reserve in museum-quality, open-top 1950s Land Rovers. These iconic vehicles were the first to traverse the desert 6 decades ago. With an experienced guide at the wheel, set off through the beautiful Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and experience a protected haven for desert wildlife.

    Important information

    Know before you go

    • The entire activity takes approximately 6 hours, with limited access to rest rooms
    • The local tour operator will strive to have your balloon in the air by sunrise, but this cannot always be guaranteed
    • The balloon flies with the wind and this determines the direction and distance, so the views differ from flight to flight. Visibility is completely dependent on weather conditions
    • The exact return time to the hotel or meeting point is dependent on where you land and the traffic conditions in the city
    • Women who are more than 3 months pregnant, and anyone with injuries or recent surgeries in their limbs or back are not permitted to fly

    This was a wonderful experience - much better than I expected. The guys on site were fabulous - they worked really hard to ensure that everyone had a great experience. They were really friendly, inclusive and nothing was too much trouble for them. Their sole focus was to make sure everyone was enjoying the activity. All components of the activity were well thought out and constructed, with a few additional touches like the camel ride, the head scarf and water bottle gifts before entering the desert safari part of the experience. Would highly recommend this activity and well done to all staff on site - you made it the wonderful experience it was.

    Everything was perfect. The flight is exceptional and we fly over the desert for over an hour. The breakfast is rich and refined for this type of outing. The exit in the nature reserve allows to see some animals and to take beautiful photos. This Jeep tour lasts 30 minutes and compensates for the desert safari. The organization is perfect

    The whole trip was perfect and enjoyable.

    Our first time experience the hot air balloon ride. It was perfect and we enjoy the whole day trip to desert safari by the antique land rover. We get to see animals that we had never seen in our country. The crews were all friendly and kind too. Thank you again. We hope to take the hot air balloon ride again one day.
