One of a kind experience at Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital
Falcons have held a special place in Arabian culture, representing the region’s rich heritage. A visit to the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital, the proud recipient of over 10 prestigious awards for its unique falcon encounters, offers a captivating glimpse into Abu Dhabi’s intriguing past.
Founded in 1999 as an affiliate of the Environment Agency Abu Dhabi, the ADFH has grown to become the world’s largest facility of its kind, providing comprehensive veterinary care to majestic falcons and various bird species. With a remarkable track record of treating over 50,000 falcons, it has earned a stellar reputation in the field of falcon medicine and research.
