Overview
Most Dubai desert tours include dune bashing with a professional driver at the helm. This tour breaks with convention, letting you take the wheel of your own 4WD vehicle in a guided convoy. Race over low dunes before conquering steeper slopes and enjoy various driving challenges before admiring the sunset from Fossil Rock. Upgrade to share the driving between two of you, if you wish.
What to Expect
Book your desired option, depart your central Dubai hotel with your guide, and board your climate-controlled Jeep Wrangler with you or your other nominated driver (depending on option selected) at the wheel. Then, receive instructions and a walkie-talkie before leaving Dubai in a guide-led convoy.

After an approximately 45-minute journey along blacktop roads, arrive at a desert base and deflate your tires to the right pressures for driving on sand.

Hit the desert and follow your guide vehicle first over low dunes. Then, pick up speed and enjoy climbing and dropping down ever steeper and higher slopes. Stop for photos and watch for wildlife, and if you’ve upgraded to the 2-driver option, take turns at the wheel.

Lastly, ascend the high dune at Fossil Rock to view the sunset and tackle a final driving challenge before driving your Jeep back to Dubai, where your experience ends at your hotel.

Before arriving in Dubai many friends told me to go in a desert Safari trip with a professional driver that picks you from the hotel and takes you around the desert, bashing dunes and stuff like that. To be honest, I haven't felt the call...More

Epic off roading experience!

This was an awesome day out and would highly recommend. A great afternoon hooning around the dunes with an excellent guide who taught us the ropes so we could get the most out of the day and keep the jeep upright!

Safari

The most amazing driver and experience. Highly recommended. Once in a lifetime experience. Pick up was on time from the hotel and so was drop off. Very informative and felt very comfortable with this company and the driver.

Thank Aleksandra D
