Half-Day Jeep 4WD Self-Drive Desert Safari Where You Share the Driving
US$140.00
Overview
Most Dubai 4WD 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 yourself. After instruction, board a 4WD 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 en 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 several minutes, prepare your 4WD 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 a convoy, sharing your driving equally between you and up to four others in your Jeep. Your guide leads the way and instructs 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.
