TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:     Mezairaa / Liwa Fort / Moreb Dune / Camel Farm / Sabkha / Avalanche / Sand Roses / Roller coaster dune drive / Picnic lunch (Day Tour) & BBQ Diner (Sunset Tour)

This tour starts in Madinat Zayed from two pickup locations (Western Hotel and Tilal Liwa).We will drive southwards some 50 km on tarmac towards the town of Mezairaa, passing by “Shams Solar Power Station” a 600 million USD project developed by Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company. The road cuts through the desert landscape with long stripes of green vegetation on both sides protecting the road from the blowing sand.

Once in Mezairaa, The first stop will be a visit to one of the “Old Forts” which housed the tribal chief in bygone days.

The drive continues southwards with the road winding through the spectacular scene of dunes towards Moreb Dune. The magical encounter with the great Empty Quarter starts here, the endless sea of sand dunes will captivate your soul and the scenery will become more and more breathtaking! We will reach our destination, “Moreb Dune” area, which translates into “The Gigantic Dune” due to its height of some 220 meters above sea level. Here the Abu Dhabi authorities have established a base camp and an arena for watching the annual race which takes place around the first week of January. The activities include 4×4, Camel, Horse as well as Falcon racing.

We will continue the journey through the undulating sand dunes of the largest sand desert of the world! We will stop at a “Camel Farm” where you will be introduced to the life of bygone days of camel herding and Bedu life. Our adventure will take off from here into the vast sea of sand and we will climb the steepest of sand dunes and roll down in a ‘roller coaster’ style. The mix of landscape is breathtaking, from “Sabkha Land” (dried-up salt lakes) to sand bush forest and gigantic dunes with the sound of “Sand Avalanche“, a unique experience reserved for the sand dunes of Liwa area. If lucky, we might spot the most elegant animal of the desert namely the “Sand Gazelle”
