Try a unique desert driving experience in the UAE desert
Time Out Dubai staff
If hopping over the dunes and achieving air-time in a dune buggy sounds like fun then you're in luck. Explorer Tours offers thrill-seekers the choice of a single-seater or two-seater buggy, the more powerful latter boasting 110HP, but both are equally fun. Their half-day tour takes place in an area of desert around 30 minutes's drive from Dubai, with morning and afternoon pick-ups. After a quick safety briefing drivers pull on their helmets, buckle up and chase the lead driver at the front, who takes the convoy along a 10km track through the desert. If you're concerned about staying in control, you needn't be. Truth is, dune buggies are easy to operate -particularly the single seaters, which are entirely automatic and require no gear changes. And if you do get stuck in the sand, the team are on hand to haul you out with a pick-up truck. Single seater: Dhs500 per person, Dhs375 per person sharing. Two seater: Dhs395 per person.
