Full description
Your desert adventure begins early in the morning when you’ll be picked up from your hotel and taken to Margham Desert for a refreshment and briefing from the pilot. Next, you’ll be driven over the red sand dunes of the Dubai desert to your takeoff location, where you’ll witness the inflation of the hot air balloon on the ground.

After takeoff, you’ll float above the Arabian desert and enjoy the sunrise from 4000 feet above the ground, taking in breathtaking views of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and native wildlife. Once you’ve landed, you'll be driven driven back to Margham Desert to freshen up and to see the live falcon show.  

Next up, you’ll have a safety talk before experiencing the thrill of quad biking over the desert dunes and enjoying a camel ride. On the safari, your guide will drive you in a 4x4 vehicle over towering sand dunes, deep into the heart of the desert. At your destination, enjoy an authentic Arabic-style buffet breakfast before being dropped off back at your hotel.
