Dubai Hot Air Balloon Flight with Vintage Land Rover Drive & Desert Breakfast

Although hot air ballooning is a truly impressive experience, this Dubai hot air balloon flight takes it to the next level for a complete ‘wow’ experience. Enjoy a magical flight over the golden sands of the Arabian Desert and then ride in vintage Land Rovers through the desert to an authentic Heritage camp for a lavish breakfast spread.

Experience the desert as only a few have seen it as your magnificent hot air balloon gently soars over the magical Arabian Desert at around 4000 feet. The Dubai balloon adventure starts with a pre-dawn drive to the launch site in the heart of the desert. With the sun slowly rising on the horizon, the gas burners are ignited and the balloon slowly comes to life. Soon you are rising into the immense blue of the desert sky affording spectacular views of giant red sand dunes, emerald green oases, gazelles and wandering camels. If you are lucky you may even spot the mighty Arabian Oryx in their natural habitat.

The Dubai balloon flight lasts for around an hour and each experience is totally unique with the flight route and landing location totally dependent on the wind strength and direction.

Once you land, the adventure doesn't end! Get ready for a ride through the desert dunes in a museum-quality, open-top 1950’s Land Rover. These iconic vehicles were the first vehicles ever to traverse the desert six decades ago. The desert drive brings you to an authentic Heritage camp in a Royal desert retreat. On arrival, you have the chance to freshen up and will then be served a scrumptious breakfast including eggs Benedict, shakshuka, salmon, caviar, halloumi cheese, fresh fruit, cold cut platters and more. Before heading back to the city, explore the authentic camp built out of natural materials like stone, wood and goat hair or enjoy a Lawrence of Arabia moment as you ride a camel in the desert. Alternatively, just sit back and relax in the traditional majlis. When you are ready your driver will take you back to the city.

The Dubai Hot Air Balloon Flight with Breakfast Safari is a great way to experience the stunning Arabian desert from above and below.
