What You Can Expect

Dubai Hot Air Balloon Flight

Cruise over Dubai Desert Conservation Range on a hot-air balloon ride!

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

The day started perfectly with driver came to fetch from our suite punctually at 4.20am. Journey to the location took about 45minutes and since it is still dark there is nothing much to see on the road, we took the opportunity for a nap. Once we reached the destination, safety briefing was done by the comical hot air balloon pilot, Michael Schaefer. Note, wear comfortable pants and shoes since there will be a need to "jump into" the basket. The height of the basket is slightly an inch higher of my waist level (I stands at 1.58m tall!). Nevertheless, an hour's flight feels so short since not only were we entertained by the hilarious pilot, but also being welcomed by the beautiful sunrise. We were back in our suite by 9am before we knew it, and will be definitely be coming back if we visit Dubai again! :)

The day started perfectly with driver came to fetch us punctually at 4.15am. Journey to the location took about 45minutes. Once we reached, safety briefing was done by the comical balloon pilot Michael Schaefer and the flight begins! Note, please wear comfortable pants as you need to cross into the basket which is about the height of my waist (I stands at 1.58m tall). Michael was hilarious and entertaining, we had so much fun that an hour's flight feels so short! We are back in our suites before 9am; definitely will be coming back for more flights if I visit Dubai again :)
