Leave nothing but dust on this dune rally in Dubai…
The ultimate test of technique and tenacity, explore the dunes of Dubai on this quad safari that’s totally off the map. An environment where a sense of direction can mean the difference between life and death, explore the arid landscape of the UAE with an expert guide, following tyre tracks in one of the most isolated landscapes on planet earth.
This activity takes place in Al Badayer Sharjah –renowned among 4x4 enthusiasts as having some of the UAE’s most impressive dunes, including the famous ‘Big Red’. Located on the higher plateau of Al Madam, Al Badayer is around 65km southeast of Sharjah city.
Meet your guide at the activity base in Al Badayer for this dune quad safari in the UAE desert. Offering a one-hour intro for beginners or a more extensive two-hour tour for more confident riders, start with a short safety briefing and technical breakdown before starting out into the dune fields. Warming up your engines on the gravel back roads, turn the throttle up to the max as you climb some of Dubai’s biggest sand dunes, learning by the seat of your pants how to turn and tread in the heart of dune-bashing country. Visit local landmarks like Big Red and Pink Rock – counting camels as you slalom down sandbanks and ride in the shadow of dunes that have taken thousands of years to form. Operating throughout the day, groups can choose to explore the landscape at dawn, dusk and even late into the evening – using the natural environment as a compass to guide you back to base camp where your adventure will end.
