Absolute Newbie Desert Drive - Al Qudra - Dubai - 16 Jan 2022

Recommended Posts

Join us to explore Al Qudra Desert to find what's beyond Qudra lakes

And learn the art of offroading in a versatile playground for your first off-road adventure.

You will learn to self-drive your vehicle from experts having decades of off-roading experience in the UAE. This area offers a good mix of playable long set of dunes and broad ridges to practice your off-road skills slowly but surely.

Warm welcome to all new joiners to the club !

@Andre Olivenca @Eli Zandro Hamoy @Harshal Tidke @ZULFIKHAR NAIYAR @Kishore Venkat @Charles Wallace @Sivakumar

As a basic introduction, kindly reply to the following:

1) Which 4x4 are you bringing?

2) Do you have prior offroading experience? If so please specify.

3) Does your vehicle have front and back tow points? This is mandatory for all vehicles.

4) Does your vehicle have a minimum of 8 inches of ground clearance at front and rear bumper?


Off-road Gears Needed

For your very first drive with us, we would like to ask you to bring a tire pressure gauge, deflator tool, and a compressor to inflate your tires after the drive. (the one near the gas station is usually not working).

The next tools you will be needing from second drive onwards, are a walkie-talkie, offroad flag, and a decent shovel. If by any chance you have these tools already you are of course welcome to bring them along on your first drive.
