What is Yellow Truck ?

Buried deep inside the Bu Hasa Desert near Madinat Zayed City, there is an abandoned water tanker truck, which due to its remote location, has become a pilgrimage for many Offroaders all over the UAE.



How did it get there ?

That remains part of the mystery.....

What's the location ?

You will have to join the drive to find it....

And why exactly should we go there as a club ?


This area, together with LIWA Moreeb area, is the ultimate playground for offroading, where you will find monstrous dunes, stadium-sized bowls, and the sheer size and remoteness will make you really feel you are in a different world ! This will be an unforgettable experience and will make you become part of our yearly pilgrimage team !

Dear friends

Waitlisted Attendees


Great to have you all on this drive planned at Yellow truck Liwa. 

I hope you all have gone through the drive thread thoroughly , please feel free to ask any questions . 


Be Prepared in advance:

1. Ensure your car is well checked, all fluids topped up, no leaks 

2. All 4 tires and Spare tire in condition , spanner available for the lug nuts and not jammed

3. Front and Rear tow hooks available, in condition and not rusted

4. Bring along two radios if you have, or a spare battery / car charger as you might need it

5. Bring in lots of patience and team work

6. Ensure all the stuff in your boot is tied down and strapped securely

7. Less or No passengers advisable as there are no near exits , in case if passenger is sick or unable to cope with the terrain. Make sure they are belted all the time . 

8. Bring all the recovery gears you have in terms of soft shackles, D shackles, Tug/kinetic ropes, straps etc.

9. Dry food, Water (5L) and snacks accordingly .

10. As much as possible - PLAN and PACK Light. Liwa needs the right weight on your car, even though a fewbie drive - every extra gram on your car matters.



Myself and some others (- please do mention here ) would be camping close to the start point. We intend to come the previous day i.e on 30th Evening (Wednesday) by around 7 pm approx. , have food, socialize😜 and sleep over there . Please bring enough warm clothes , camping gears/sleeping bags if you would like to do it. If your car allows you could as well sleep in your car.

Fuel station is about approx 15- 20 min drive from there and you can plan to fuel up accordingly ( including your jerry cans).
