Mark the moment on this sunset dune buggy & sandboarding excursion in Dubai’s Red Desert.
A national icon that has navigated Bedouin caravans through the desert for centuries, Big Red stands proud as the largest landmark in the Red Desert. Explore the contours of this ever-evolving landscape on a dune bashing adventure in the Al Madam plateau. Experience sunset from the top of Big Red and enjoy a traditional Arabian banquet under the stars on this dune buggy & sandboarding package.
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 dune buggy & sand boarding experience in the Red Desert. Travelling to the undulating red sands of the Al Madam valley, start with a short safety briefing and demo before you set off into the unknown – using a two-seater dune buggy. Choosing to travel on your own or take a passenger, follow your local guide along the Arabian horizon - experiencing unique terrain that charts the historical Bedouin trade route. 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 playground. Reaching your Bedouin camp at twilight, settle in for an evening of quintessential Arabian hospitality, enjoying an authentic buffet, belly dancing, a fire show, camel rides and even henna tattoos! As the evening winds down, a shuttle service will be waiting to transfer you back to your accommodation.
Suitable for anyone over the age of +13 years old, passengers/children are permitted as dune buggies can accommodate two guests per vehicle. No driving licence required.
