Full description
Your hot air balloon adventure begins early in the morning, when you’ll be picked up from your hotel and taken to the Margham Desert for a refreshment and a briefing from the pilot. Next, you’ll be driven over the red sand dunes of the Dubai desert to your take-off 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 back to the Margham desert to freshen up, take photos with a falcon, and enjoy an Arabic Style buffet breakfast. Finally, be dropped off back at your hotel where your tour will end.

    Amazing experience all together .. It was my first ride and it just felt great to fly .. all seemed experienced and well trained,had a wonderful landing and at no point felt uncomfortable.. The package was well planned. Got to ride Camel,horse and to hold Falcon.. On time pick up and all arrangements were well done.. Just one thing which I felt missing was briefing at every stage but towards the end had that connect and they briefed when we got to the camp. Breakfast was okie,people were very welcoming and kind.. Also got the Go pro video at extra cost but it was worth it to carry a memory of the flight☺️ Overall wonderful experience..
