About Royal Shaheen

Royal Shaheen Events was born from humble beginnings in 2004, delivering problem bird control services to the hospitality sector of Dubai. Through our Founder, Peter Bergh's passion for Falconry, we now conduct the region's most sought-after Falconry Safaris to an international audience.

Our Falconry Safaris are conducted in the pristine dunes of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Designed to offer our guests a unique blend of Arabian and Modern Falconry. The Falconry Safaris incorporate wildlife viewing as well as an optional Luxury or Cultural Breakfast.

In addition to being the Industry leader for Falconry Tourism, we are also the Go-To company for Falconry Media requirements. Another feather in our cap is the "Flying with Falcons" project (a world's first), Flying Falcons from hot air balloons.

In addition, we offer Problem Bird Control, Static Falconry Displays and Falconry Consultancy Services.

The Royal Shaheen Team

Meet The Founder

Peter Henry Bergh

Owner and Director

Pete’s got a serious passion or should we say addiction for Birds-of-Prey, Falcons in particular.

Leveraging his 17 years of experience in the Falconry-Tourism Sector, he has developed a world class Bird-Of-Prey experience in the heart of Dubai’s pristine desert – The Dubai Falconry Safari.

When Pete is not Directing Royal Shaheen, you might catch him flying Falcons at 4000ft from Hot Air Balloons (a world first) or developing advanced drones for training Falcons. Watch this space for the soon to be launched – HighTech Falconry Experience – another world first and the eagerly awaited, BerghWing.
