Explore the Red Desert at sunset on this 4x4 safari & sand boarding experience in Dubai.
Discover the thrill of sand bashing in the heart of the Red Desert on this 4x4 safari & sandboarding package. Home to the tallest dune in Dubai, embrace the white-knuckle highs and lows of Big Red – navigating the contours of a national icon with an experienced stunt driver behind the wheel. Like all great desert adventures, yours ends with a traditional Bedouin banquet and entertainment under the stars!
This activity takes place in the Red Desert in Dubai. Located near Sharjah City, it is home to the area’s biggest dune ‘Big Red’ near Al Badayer. Part of the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area, it is renowned among 4x4 enthusiasts as having some of the UAE’s most impressive dunes.
Meet your guide at the activity base in Al Badayer for this sunset safari & sand boarding experience in the Red Desert. An ancient landscape that is renowned for its shifting peaks that attract petrol heads to this infinite playground, chase the horizon through the largest sand desert in the world with an experienced stunt driver. Travelling to the undulating red sands of the Al Madam valley, hold on tight as your chauffer demonstrates why the Red Desert is a mecca for motocross and 4x4 enthusiasts - navigating knife-edge ridges & vast plains to the top of Big Red – the desert’s tallest dune. From here, you’ll get a chance to try sandboarding – using this impressive peak as your training ground – learning how to board and skeleton bob down its sloping banks. Reaching camp at twilight, settle down for an authentic Bedouin evening under the stars, enjoying a buffet dinner and traditional entertainment that includes belly dancing, a fire show, camel rides and even henna tattoos. Once the evening starts to wind down, a shuttle service will be waiting to transfer you back to your accommodation.
Suitable for anyone over the age of +5 years old, passengers/children are permitted as 4x4s can accommodate up to four guests per vehicle. No driving licence required.
