Enjoy a magic carpet ride over an endless ocean of sand dunes, emerald green oasis, oryx, gazelles and wandering camels. Witness a breathtaking sunrise with the backdrop of the majestic Hajjar Mountains and be welcomed by the warmth of the desert people we chance to meet on landing. All this is only a 35 minute drive from Burj Khalifa. The balloon takes off from our designated take off site in the desert off from Dubai- Al Ain Road in the area of The Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. We take off to meet the sun as it rises over the Arabian Desert and fills the sky with light. The early morning provides the best flying conditions. The cool and serene ambience enhances the breathtaking views and incredible desert landscapes.
