Glide up, up and away in a hot air balloon over Dubai Desert Conservation Revservation! After traveling from your central Dubai hotel to Margham by minibus, take to the morning skies and glide over the tranquil desert as the sun starts to rise. Gaze in awe at some spectacular desert vistas while enjoying an hour in the air, and then return to ground to celebrate the flight with a refreshing drink before returning to Dubai.
Rise early to start your hot air balloon experience with a hotel pickup from central Dubai, and then travel out of the city toward Dubai Desert Conservation Reservation, roughly 30 minutes away. Stop at the launch field in Margham, and hop out of your minibus to watch your brightly colorful balloon inflate.
After listening to a safety briefing, step inside your balloon’s basket and take to the skies with your pilot. Each basket holds a maximum of 24 people and there’s plenty of room for you to sightsee comfortably as you soar up and away.
Have your camera ready to capture bird’s-eye views of the desert that stretches out as far as the eye can see. As you watch the sun rise over the red-tinged sand dunes, listen to your pilot talking about the barren landscape mapped out beneath you, and learn about the wildlife —think camels and gazelles — that prosper in the harsh desert conditions.
After an hour in the air, it’s time to return to ground level, so, follow your pilot’s instructions for a smooth landing. Once back on the ground, head inside the launch center to celebrate your flight by receiving your personalized flight certificate and enjoying a cool drink. A professional video of your experience is available should you want to purchase it.
Finish your drink, and then return to your minibus to end your Dubai hot air balloon experience with a hotel drop-off.
