There you can take rest, avail bathroom/toilet facilities, meanwhile, your land cruiser gets its tire pressures adjusted for the desert safari. Even as other convoys join your gang, you can go for an optional Quad Biking. Soon the adventures begin with dune bashing in the Dubai desert. Go for a dune drive through the peculiarly shaped red dunes at Lahbab. After 30-45 minutes of dune bashing drive, keep your thrills alive with sand-surfing along the dunes (sandboarding).
