Dubai dune bashing
If you’re looking for a hands-on way to conquer the desert at speed in Dubai, dune bashing is where it’s at. Why not take a leaf out of the young Emiratis’ book and head for Big Red, a massive sand dune over 300 feet high. Choose the relative safety of a 4x4 or, if you have nerves of steel, you can opt to go dune bashing in a high-powered buggy.
Alternatively, venture off-piste into the scorching desert, mighty sand dunes and endless emptiness – but bring plenty of water, at least one other vehicle, a rope and a spade.
