Intermediate - LIWA 2020 Adventure Drive - 2 Dec 2020

Recommended Posts

Experience the grandeur and majesty of Liwa desert in Empty Quarter (Rub-al-khali). 

The largest continuous sea of dunes spread across the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Yemen.

What you will find here:

  • Tallest sand dunes (300 meters)
  • Steepest incline and drops
  • Longest side sloping
  • Broad ridge riding
  • Fast heartbeat

Its every offroader's dream to visit Liwa desert and dunes at least once to witness the maximum scale of sand dunes existence. Though an unforgiving terrain, LIWA still welcomes offroaders who are sensible and respectful to drive through such an enormous sea of sand dunes.

@Emmanuel the FJ version I drive has a 70L Gas tank instead of 150L. Is it sufficient for this sort of drive considering it will take half a day. Also if possible please add to waitlist thanks

70 Litres would be less. It would be good to carry extra fuel (20 litres)

Hi @Heisem. I have the same tank as yours, and I usually consume half a tank every 100Km of desert driving, Consider that this is on less challenging terrain than Liwa, so it may turn out to be actually less than 200Km for a full tank. If Emmanuel can advise how many Kms he's planning to drive (roughly) + distance to nearest refueling station from entry/exit point, you can figure out how many cans you'll need. I would carry 2 of 20lt each, if I were you.

Hi 

With 150 l tank I should survive, right... ?

Are you guys planning to stay overnight somewhere there ?
