Add To Plan

Experience the thrill of a lifetime driving in 4X4 vehicles over towering soft sand-dunes on this adventure tour. Leaving the pier behind, you'll travel into the desert and enjoy breath-taking climbs up the face of the dunes, followed by stomach-dropping descents as you engage in what is referred to as dune bashing. As your skilled driver negotiates a course through the desert, you'll be treated to spectacular panoramic views of this magnificent vast landscape of golden sands.

After approximately one hour of exhilarating excitement crisscrossing the desert terrain, you'll stop for a break at a comfortable Bedouin style campsite. Soft drinks, Arabic coffee and an assortment of delicious dates and nuts will be provided for your enjoyment. During your break, you may also seize the opportunity to take a ride on one of the resident camels.

Following your break, you'll rejoin your vehicle for the trek back to the port.
