Description High, golden, constantly changing dunes: the breathtaking show of Nature in the desert.

What we will see
  • Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque (photo stop)
  • Al Khatem Desert
  • The highest dunes in the world
  • Barbecue Arab-style


What we will do
  • We leave Abu Dhabi in our 4x4 and make our way first towards the majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, where we have a photo stop for snapshots to immortalise the largest mosque in the Arab Emirates and the eighth largest in the world, able to accommodate up to 40,000 people.
  • Back in our jeep, we leave behind the modern streets of Abu Dhabi to venture into the Al Khatem desert. We stop briefly when we come to the desert to deflate the tyres and adjust the car stability to our route. 
  • Once in the desert, we will be climbing the the highest dunes in the world, which rise majestically to a height of 300 metres. These mountains of constantly moving sand are a sight that will literally take your breath away. 
  • On our rollercoaster journey in the sea of sand of Al Khatem, we will be making a few photo stops to fully appreciate the landscape and take some unforgettable photos of these constantly changing mountains of sand. 
  • The delicious Arab-style barbecue at a desert camp is an unmissable experience.
