To get the best out of your UAE vacation, try out a visit to Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital (ADFH) with Rayna Tours! Falcons have always played an important role in the lives of Arabian people, and hence regarded as a symbol of the region’s rich culture and heritage. A trip to Abu Dhabi Hospital – the proud winner of 10 plus prestigious awards for its one-of-a-kind program that allows you to have close-up encounters with falcons – will offer an interesting look at the Abu Dhabi’s interesting yore.
Started off as an Environment Agency Abu Dhabi’s affiliate in 1999, the ADFH is now the largest of its kind in the world providing comprehensive vet care to splendid falcons as well as other bird species. With the rare distinction of having treated more than 50,000 falcons, it is now reputed as one of the most foremost facilities for medicine and research in the field of falcon medicine.
Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of this falcon tour is visiting the falconry museum, which has on display an awe-inspiring selection of items that allow you to get a slice of the history of falconry in the UAE. Another of its highlights is its free flight aviary. Its mesmerizing background and sheer enormity provide for excellent photographic opportunities with falcons.
Equally curiosity-generating is the hospital’s sections, such as examination room, operation theatres, ophthalmology unit, and treatment wards that can accommodate more than 200 patients. There is also a pet care centre, where you’ll come across dogs and cats treated in a VIP style. Most of all, the ADFH has an animal shelter, approved by the Abu Dhabi Government.
