For anyone looking for a personalized and extensive encounter with these birds, an outing with Royal Shaheen is the way to do it. The falcon shows included in package tours tend to be only one bird, and there is no guarantee you'll get to fly or hold it; the falconers also have varying degrees of experience. If you're interested in... More

We booked the Traditional Interactive Falconry Experience with breakfast at Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa. It was a unique and fantastic experience. Werner and Khan were very friendly and we learned a lot about birds and wildlife in general. Werner presented us not only falcons, but also different owls and an eagle. We could see them fly, hunt and... More

Today I had the most incredible experience with Brian (guide) and his assistant Khan on my private falconry session. It was a very windy morning on the desert, but that did not deter Brian or Khan. Brian gave a thorough explanation and demos of how falcons and the cutest little barn owl are trained. Brian's kestrel, Kush, accompanied us. Don't... More

To go out into a desert preserve, view wildlife, be greeted by Kahn with dates and coffee, while sitting on a carpet under a tree in the desert listening to some of the raptors "talking" was simply a magical experience in a beautiful setting...
