Those of you involved in flying hot air balloons are well aware of the wonderful experience such a trip offers especially on a warm, clear summer’s day. The views are spectacular as you fly high above the countryside in the UK in peaceful surroundings.
Well, if that is not enough to please some of you interested in taking to the skies in a hot air balloon, how about a trip several thousand feet up using this mode of transport but where the journey also involves seeing a falconry demonstration that actually takes part from the basket of the hot air balloon. Such an experience is offered by a company in the United Arab Emirates.
It is claimed to be the first time that falcons have been used in this way anywhere in the world. The hot air balloon rises to 4,000 feet above the desert from where the falcons have been specially trained to fly from thus providing a wonderful demonstration of these magnificent birds. In addition to witnessing the falcons you also enjoy breakfast in the desert and go on a wildlife safari in an open top Land Rover built in the 1950s. The hot air balloon flight lasts for around an hour. Flights are available between October to the end of May. Possibly something to consider if you are planning a trip to the United Arab Emirates?
