With so much sand all around, Dubai becomes an ideal place for the perfect dune bashing experience. Safari Desert (a part of the Arabian Desert) is located about 40 km from the center of Dubai, southeast to the Sultanate of Oman. In short, Dune Bashing is basically a form of off-roading done on sand dunes, usually in a big 4x4 vehicle like the Toyota Land Cruiser or Fortuner. The sport utility vehicles, which are used for this adventure sport, are usually fitted with protective gear. For example, the roll cages and tire pressure are significantly reduced to allow for maximum traction against the moving sand. 




You will most likely sit in the passenger seats of the car, while your driver does all of the heavy liftings. Be prepared to skid, slide and slip on your seat as your driver will make your way through the golden sand of the desert. The dune bashing goes on for about 20-30 minutes, then the guests will be taken to a central camp in the desert, where you are invited to sit on couches/carpets on the floor and join some traditional activities like henna painting and camel riding. One of the highlights of this experience is a delicious barbecue dinner that follows afterward. There are even live performances while you are eating. Once your meal is over, the adventure finally comes to a close, as you are dropped back to your hotel safely the tour operator.
