Madinat Zayed and Beyond – 1 or 2 Night UAE Desert Adventure

Join us for a one- or two-night overland-style desert adventure led by our expert guide, the Desert Diva. Take the wheel of your own 4×4 vehicle and traverse approximately 160 kilometers of captivating desert landscapes, navigating medium to large dunes under her expert guidance. Prepare for awe-inspiring vistas, possible camel encounters, and if luck favors, glimpses of graceful gazelles. As the sun dips below the horizon, we’ll set up camp in a secluded spot, enveloped by silence under a star-studded sky. Leave the logistics to us – simply pack your camping essentials and a change of clothes; all your needs will be catered to along the journey. With the Desert Diva at the helm, an off-road specialist and former Dakar VIP Experience instructor, rest assured for a smooth and secure expedition, ensuring an unforgettable experience for both newcomers and seasoned adventurers alike.

Crafted and tested with precision by Marina, our route spans approximately 160 kilometers of gentle off-road driving through the most breathtaking dunes. Once we venture into the remote desert, encounters with others are rare until our return, more than 24 hours later. Disconnect from the modern world, immersing yourself in the raw beauty of the Abu Dhabi Desert while gaining insights into the historical challenges of traversing it, long before the advent of 4x4s and mobile phones.
