Falcons have held a special place in the Emirati culture and tradition since ancient times. Located in close proximity to the Abu Dhabi International Airport, the award-winning Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital (ADFH) is not only popular as a facility where these imposing birds are well taken care of but also as a place that promotes and preserves the legendary art of falconry.
The first of its kind hospital in the region completely dedicated to avian species, the ADFH has now become an internationally recognized facility in the field of falcon medicine and research. This unique hospital has treated more than 40,000 falcons since its opening in 1999.
With a falcon tour in Abu Dhabi, you can explore the hospital’s several interesting sections, such as examination room where you can see these magnificent birds undergoing pedicure as well as meticulous treatments including feather repair. You can also head over to its expansive free-flight aviary, which provides an impressive background to capture pictures with a magnificent falcon sitting on your arm. There is also a museum displaying falconry related exhibits inside the hospital.
