Unlike most tall attractions located in the city, offering views of shimmery skyscrapers and bustling highways, a hot air balloon flight in Dubai offers a much more relaxing scenery. When the first rays of the morning sun radiate the desert landscape, the natural beauty of Dubai is uncovered, and it’s simply magnificent.
Here are some of the best sights you can come across when taking a hot air balloon flight in Dubai:
The desert ecosystem is a habitat for several animals. From graceful gazelles to stately oryx, keep an eye out for these native dwellers as your balloon floats over the desert.Balloon Adventures Dubai is the only hot air balloon company in the UAE that is authorized to fly over the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve – which is home to a wide variety of animals, including the Sand Cat, Houbara, Barbary Falcon, Rupell’s Fox, Sand Gazelle, Arabian Oryx, Camels, and so many more species.
Dubai is home to a gorgeous desert teeming with life. From ancient trees like the Date Palm, Ghaf Tree, and the Samur Tree, to beautiful lakes which are home to more than one hundred species of birds including many migratory birds.
Yes, you read that right. Giraffes are no strangers to the Dubai Desert. Enjoy this video captured by one of our hot air balloon guests, where they spot a small tower of giraffes roaming through the desert.View this post on Instagram
Endless Golden Dunes
During your magical hot air balloon flight, there will be a point where your pilot will lower the balloon basket closer to the floor of the desert so you can get an up-close view of the landscape below. This is where you will see the Dubai Desert from a whole new level of beauty. The dunes are naturally filtered in golden by the sun and run as far as the eye can see. The vast expanse of these dunes is a humbling and incredible view of Dubai, in contrast to the glitz & glamour of the city. It makes you appreciate how far this beautiful nation has progressed.View this post on Instagram
The Hajjar Mountains
A morning spent admiring the beautiful sunrise over the Dubai Desert offers a way to find silence, clarity, and inspiration. If you’re lucky enough, you may also have the chance to sight a beautiful view of the sun peek behind the Hajar Mountains as it rises. It’s truly a sight to behold.View this post on Instagram
Small villages and camel farms
The direction in which your hot air balloon will float majorly depends on the direction of the wind. In floating at the command of the wind, many a time, our hot air balloons have taken guests flying over small settlements of rural villages and animal farms. It is especially fun to see the villagers wave hello in awe, as the hot air balloon flies over their homes.
