Day 1: Dubai – Desert Driving - Desert Camp (D)
Begin your 1- or 2-night trip with a hotel pickup and collect your air-conditioned Jeep. Get a safety briefing, driving instructions and a walkie-talkie, and drive your 4x4 along the tarmac roads into the desert.
After deflating your tires for off-road driving, leave the tarmac and cross the undulating sands to Pink Rock dune. Learn the desert-driving essentials here, swapping driving with your passengers as you wish. Watch for camels and desert wildlife, and make photo stops on route to Big Red, a beautiful area of high dunes.
Have fun negotiating the sands, and then thrill as you tackle the higher, rock-crowned Fossil Rock before driving through more dunes to a desert campsite.
Set up your tent, and enjoy a barbecue dinner under the stars as you chat over your exploits.
Overnight: Desert Camp
Day 2: Desert Camp – Dubai (B), or Liwa (B, L, D)After an early campfire breakfast, pack up camp. Then, if you’ve chosen the 1-night tour, enjoying an exhilarating morning dune bash before ending your tour in Dubai.
For the 2-night tour, follow breakfast with a 4-hour drive to Liwa, a remote region in the Rub al Khali or 'Empty Quarter' that’s home to the Arabian Peninsula’s highest dunes.
After a buffet lunch at a hotel, take an exhilarating dune drive. Master more advanced maneuvers and feel your adrenaline race as you slip and spin around the slopes.
Make camp in Liwa and enjoy a barbecue dinner under a spectacular canopy of stars before settling in your tent.
Overnight: Desert Camp in Liwa
Day 3: Liwa – Dubai (B)After breakfast, leave camp and drive back to Dubai, where your tour ends around noon.

Desert camping

Well organised and stress free. Good experience for the family especially young children. Our guide was very accommodating and encouraging without being intrusive or in you face. Great memories for the kids.
