Half Day Jeep 4x4 Self Drive Desert Safari where you Share the Driving
US$140.00
Overview
Most Dubai 4x4 desert trips involve a trained desert driver transporting you over the dunes. This self-drive adventure puts you behind the wheel, so you enjoy the adrenaline rush of driving through the desert. After instructions, board a 4x4 Jeep Wrangler and rumble over dunes and sands in a guided convoy. Share the driving with up to four others in your Jeep, and learn key desert driving skills on route.
What to Expect
Greet your guide at a Dubai meeting point and listen to a safety briefing before watching an instructional video. Then, head out into the desert for your self-drive adventure.

After roughly 45 minutes, prepare your 4x4 Jeep Wrangler for the sands. Deflate the tires to the correct pressure and go off-road for further safety and driving training.

Take a practice run and set off in convoy, sharing your driving equally between you and up to four others in your Jeep. Your guide will lead the way and instruct each Jeep via walkie-talkie.

Enjoy the adrenaline rush as you power over swathes of pink-red dunes and soft sands. Soak up the wilderness, drive to an ancient fossil-coated rock ridge framed by dunes, and get tuition on various driving challenges and techniques along the way.

Afterward, return to Dubai where your trip ends at the original meeting point.

Fantastic experience

David is a fantastic guide and takes away all the hesitation and concerns about driving in the dunes. He explain the details and gives constant feedback over the Walkie. Great experience everybody should try to get a completely different perception of Dubai.
