Try sandboarding while your private guide sets up camp on a traditional carpet where you’re treated to Arabic coffee and dates with your meal. Price is per group, based on a maximum of six people.

Got an age-old rivalry to settle? Monday blues got you down? Tired of the monotony of professional life? Well how about taking it to the desert in our Dune Buggy safari-cum-challenge!

Strap into high gear and rock those dunes in our two-seater ATVs designed to deliver a thrilling experience!

While they can achieve top speeds, our dune buggies are also safer than most ATVs currently out in the market, coming equipped with a full roll cage, bucket seats, and safety harnesses. Get set to defy our 10km track, complete with its own challenges and hazards. Don't sweat the technicalities! We've got a team on-hand in case of mechanical problems, and we also provide refreshments.


We accept bookings for morning, mid-day and afternoon excursions.

Our package includes:

Transportation to and from the desert

Safety briefing upon arrival

Experienced convoy leader

Backup team with mechanical assistance

Helmet & goggles

Disclaimer form for legal purposes

Refreshments - soft drinks & water
