Recommended Posts

DRIVE PLAN

As an endurance test, and to slowly give a taste of a more overlanding style of driving, we are organizing a full day of off-roading in the Abu-Dhabi desert. We will be starting nearby the Oman border along Dubai-Al Ain Road and proceed West as far a possible towards Abu Dhabi City, probably exiting somewhere along the E75. The terrain will be challenging and will be a mental test for all of us ! 

Recharge yourself and fully refuel your 4x4 if you like to join !

Hi @Frederic, I have been looking forward to such a drive since day one! Really appreciate it! I am thinking of taking the family along for the day (wife + 9,7 and 4 year old) any reason not to do so?

Hi @Mike M. please don’t underestimate these kinds of drives, as we will be doing 100+ Km. It will be a long day and for small kids perhaps not very enjoyable. If they are ok with long drives then of course you’re welcome to bring them along.

Thanks for signing up to this overlanding trip through Abu-Dhabi ! A small screenshot below shows you the plan: a long crossing from East to West, comprising of some of the most beautiful desert areas UAE has to offer.

As this drive is an overlanding style of drive, we will be driving "differently", as we will not be sidesloping or criss-crossing too much but rather try to accomplish the entire challenge before evening. The reward will be reaching our destination with the entire convoy !
 
Some information about overlanding here:
 

 

Please make sure your vehicle is in tip-top condition, and you are fully refueled when you reach the meeting point. Bring some snacks and ready to pack lunch as we will be taking a small lunch break. 

 

See you all soon !
