Wake early and begin your hot-air balloon Dubai experience with a pickup from your Dubai hotel or central meeting point. Hop inside your air-conditioned minibus, and travel to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve outside the city. After a scenic drive, arrive at the launch site, and watch as your hot-air balloon is inflated for your flight. Listen to a safety briefing before climbing inside the basket with an experienced pilot at the controls. Each basket holds up to 24 passengers, and there’s plenty of space for you to sightsee as you fly. As you rise higher, take in views of the sunrise, and hear commentary from your pilot about the geology and wildlife of the protected Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Then enjoy a unique opportunity to watch falcons fly up to 4,000 feet (1219 meters) above the Earth in a trained demonstration. After the flight, you’ll be driven to a private desert conservation reserve where you’ll have the chance to freshen up at clean, private bathrooms. Afterward, return to your minibus and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.
