Get up bright and early and be rewarded with a majestic sunrise view as you fly over the desert.

From the city center, we drive to the Skydive Dubai desert campus along the Al Ain highway, about 30 minutes away from the Burj Khalifa. The balloon takeoff point is next door to the world famous Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, allowing for opportunities to spot indigenous species like oryx and gazelles from up in the air. Take in the cool and serene early morning air - the best time for ballooning - and marvel at the seemingy endless ocean of sand, with the rare oasis here and there, against the backdrop of the Al Hajar Mountains. The experience is made richer by the welcoming desert people you may chance upon after landing.
