Al Maha Falconry Demonstrations
The people of Dubai have been taming and training falcons for generations. A tradition that dates back over 4,000 years, falcons have enabled the tribes of the Middle East to hunt and catch game without the need for guns.
This unforgettable excursion takes place at the Al Maha Desert Resort, a unique destination set in over 200 square kilometres of pristine desert. One of the most enchanting and picturesque resorts in Dubai, Al Maha will make the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable day of falconry.
During the excursion, visitors will be shown the incredible skills of the falcons and their handlers. Trained to catch and kill their prey, but leave their bodies untouched for their handler to deal with, these highly intelligent birds made it possible for people to live in this harsh desert landscape.
During the demonstration, visitors can photograph these magnificent birds in flight, capturing incredible images of the falcons and their impressive aerial displays. These flights take place during the cooler parts of the day, making it more enjoyable for both the falcons and the captivated audience.
As well as the falconry display, the Al Maha Desert Resort offers a variety of traditional activities and a wide choice of entertainment options. Visitors not staying at the resort can take in a falconry demonstration before enjoying a freshly prepared meal in the resort's atmospheric restaurant. There they can enjoy a range of performances, including traditional dancing and live music.
Holidaymakers who have booked at room at the resort will be able to take in a range of activities during their stay, helping them to gain a better understanding of the desert and see a different side of contemporary Dubai.
A fantastic day out for families, groups and couples visiting Dubai, this unique and captivating demonstration makes a great alternative to the modern attractions of the city.
