It was a wonderful afternoon, enriched by an extra ordinary guide who was able to answer all our questions and a meeting with the hawks the eagle and the eagle owl as soon as enriching, we could also see dromedaries as well as a whole fauna in the desert. Really a great experience I recommend this trip to the desert.

It was a wonderful day with new experiences and impressions

The first contact took place in front of our hotel. There we were introduced to an eagle - sitting in the trunk. After about 45 minutes driving time we have arrived in the reserve. There we received a warm welcome with tea and dates and the animals were introduced to us. It was a dream. Four hawks, an owl and the eagle were there. The guide lives for his animals. He explained everything to us and we were allowed to "fly" with the falcons, the owl and the eagle. It was an incredible experience. How respectful and sensitive the boys were with the animals, just great. We will definitely do this tour again when we come back to the Emirates.

Es war eine tolle Tour! Dylan ist ein toller Guide, der uns herzlich und sehr freundlich empfangen hat. Er hat uns die Vögel in aller Ruhe gezeigt, uns sehr viel über die Tiere erzählt und uns die unterschiedlichen Trainingsmethoden in der Wüste gezeigt. Ein Dank geht auch an Rahim. Wir hatten einen unvergesslichen Tag, der uns auch dank seiner Fotos lange in Erinnerung bleibt. Diese Tour ist zu 100% empfehlenswert. Nochmals vielen Dank an das ganze Royal Shaheen Team, - auch für die gute Organisation und Informationen im Vorfeld.
