Newbie Drive - Solar Park - Al Qudra Desert - 31 Jan 2020

Recommended Posts

Al Qudra Desert is a very good and versatile learning ground for absolute newbies for their first time desert driving thrilling experience. If you have already driven in sand before then you can learn more from experts having decades of offroading experience in the UAE. This area offers a good mix of playable long set of dunes and broad ridge to test your off-road control. Drive will start with detail briefing, followed by 2-3 hours of driving in sand dunes and then break for refreshment over a feedback and assessment session for each offroader.

All first timer absolute newbie drivers will receive a detailed briefing before the drive starts to learn the basics of desert driving, techniques and etiquette. They will also receive the safety advise, recovery procedures, best practice and debunking the myth of desert driving. Newbie briefing will end with an individual advice on your 4x4 vehicle gearing, tire pressure, traction control and SRS options to enjoy your first desert drive thoroughly and safely.

Hi Gaurav. Question: I need to be in Sweihan tomorrow, by 1:30. I cannot do the Fewbie drive 'cause Badayer is too far. But I would love to be of support to the Newbie drive (just to enjoy the desert in Qudra). If I joined, would I be able to leave max at 12:00pm (inflated)? Thanks for letting me know.

Well it all depends, if you bribe the trip leader by inviting him to Sweihan buffet, then 12 (sharp) is possible.
