Overview
Escape the city and take to the dunes on a guided experience, in your own desert dune buggy. Bring along up to three friends on a guided trail of Lisaili Desert.  Enjoy the thrill, excitement and exhilaration of the rolling dunes in the latest fast, fun and safe dune buggies. 
Highlights
  • Drive a dune buggy on a half-day tour in Dubai’s Al Lisaili desert
  • Feel the thrill of roaring across the dunes in your own 4-seater buggy
  • All equipment, sodas, and hotel transfers included, plus choice of departures
  • Price per buggy—each holds up to four people who can take turns driving
What to Expect
Depart your hotel in Dubai according to your selected time slot and travel by climate-controlled 4WD into the Al Lisaili desert region. After several minutes, arrive at the buggy base and check out your 4-seater, fully automatic off-roader. Up to three companions can accompany you and take turns at the wheel, provided they have the necessary driver’s licenses. Your buggy is fitted with a roll cage and off-road suspension, and refreshments are supplied during your expedition. Following a safety briefing and operating instructions, don the provided helmet and goggles, and set off behind your guide vehicle. Rumble along trails through the sands, and as your confidence builds, up your speed. Roar over the rolling dunes and plains, and stop en route to capture photos of the stunning landscapes around you. After your allotted time, enjoy a 4WD ride back to your hotel, where your experience ends.
