    We are delighted to announce the UAE OFFROADERS MEGA TRIP!
    If you want to give cities a break and have fun in the great outdoors - the weather calls for it - with your family, children and friends, this is it! We will spend a full day in the desert, packed with social activities, dune driving and a few surprises, among the spectacular dunes of UAE!

    When: Friday, 13th February
    Where: Al Khazna (between Abu Dhabi and Al Ain)
    What: Trips and social gathering

    The day will start in the morning, with everyone gathering on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The club's marshals will lead everyone to the desert camp site, where the trips will start in two separate convoys, both led by our marshals, with the support of our most experienced drivers. The usual safety UAE Offroaders rules apply for both trips.
    By sunset, both convoys will meet back at the campsite, where there will be social activities for adults and children, lucky draws and special discounts from our affiliated partners.

    Registration: UAE Offroaders members, please sign up as usual on the club's website.


    Non-members, please register with an SMS to 0564807664 (Abu Dhabi group) or 0557035999 (Dubai group).
