Dubai Self-Drive 4WD Desert and Dune Bash Safari

Low Price Guarantee
No Booking Fees
Most Dubai desert tours include dune bashing with a professional driver at the helm. This tour breaks with convention, letting you take the wheel of your own 4WD vehicle in a guided convoy. Race over low dunes before conquering steeper slopes and enjoy various driving challenges before admiring the sunset from Fossil Rock. Upgrade to share the driving between two of you, if you wish.
  • Drive your own 4WD on a desert tour from Dubai with up to three passengers
  • Conquer dunes and climb Fossil Rock at the wheel of a Jeep Wrangler
  • Suits all driver levels, with instructions, walkie-talkie, and guided convoy
  • Price per 4WD vehicle, with a driver and passengers, or upgrade for two drivers
What to Expect
Book your desired option, depart your central Dubai hotel with your guide, and board your climate-controlled Jeep Wrangler with you or your other nominated driver (depending on option selected) at the wheel. Then, receive instructions and a walkie-talkie before leaving Dubai in a guide-led convoy. After the journey along blacktop roads, arrive at a desert base and deflate your tires to the right pressures for driving on sand. Hit the desert and follow your guide vehicle first over low dunes. Then, pick up speed and enjoy climbing and dropping down ever steeper and higher slopes. Stop for photos and watch for wildlife, and if you’ve upgraded to the 2-driver option, take turns at the wheel. Lastly, ascend the high dune at Fossil Rock to view the sunset and tackle a final driving challenge before driving your Jeep back to Dubai, where your experience ends at your hotel.
