The series of off-road adventures includes six driving route maps covering #AbuDhabi, Al Dhafrah and Al Ain.

The routes have been designed to suit all levels so adventurers can enjoy the freedom of desert camping and safari experiences in their own vehicles.

The routes provide a variety of sightseeing opportunities, including camel and gazelle sightings, unique desert dune views and access to oases.

The route maps include Al Remah, Al Ain to White Sands, Hameem Loop, Umm Al Oush, Liwa Crossing and Al Khazna, all of which will be available through participating tour operators.

Drivers will be provided with a set of checklists and instructions to ensure safety.

Participating operators will offer lessons on the basics of the activity to those with no prior experience in off-road driving, to help them to safely enjoy their next adventure.

HE Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing at DCT Abu Dhabi, said: “Abu Dhabi is a wonderful destination for adventurers and those looking to connect with nature, thanks to its diverse and rugged landscape.

“To map out the best routes for exploration and put in place the right safety guidelines with an aim to ensure a fun and safe adventure for all, we worked closely with Capital Gate Tourism and Adventure, as well as with the Anantara Qasr Al Sarab Resort.

“Each route map will offer required prerequisites and guidelines, including levels of required experience, to ensure drivers are adequately prepared to take off and enjoy this exciting adventure.”
