Overview
Most Dubai desert tours include dune bashing with a professional driver at the helm. This tour breaks with convention, letting you take the wheel of your own 4WD vehicle in a guided convoy. Race over low dunes before conquering steeper slopes and enjoy various driving challenges before admiring the sunset from Fossil Rock. Upgrade to share the driving between two of you, if you wish.
What to Expect
Book your desired option, depart your central Dubai hotel with your guide, and board your climate-controlled Jeep Wrangler with you or your other nominated driver (depending on option selected) at the wheel. Then, receive instructions and a walkie-talkie before leaving Dubai in a guide-led convoy.

After an approximately 45-minute journey along blacktop roads, arrive at a desert base and deflate your tires to the right pressures for driving on sand.

Hit the desert and follow your guide vehicle first over low dunes. Then, pick up speed and enjoy climbing and dropping down ever steeper and higher slopes. Stop for photos and watch for wildlife, and if you’ve upgraded to the 2-driver option, take turns at the wheel.

Lastly, ascend the high dune at Fossil Rock to view the sunset and tackle a final driving challenge before driving your Jeep back to Dubai, where your experience ends at your hotel.

Thank you for your excellent rating and kind words. The overnight trips are where you will find the bigger more challenging dunes accessible. Hope to see you again soon.
