For the first time in the 20-year history of the gated Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, off-road enthusiasts can enjoy a
self-drive or guided safari through the
225-square-kilometre area under our expert instruction. Choose from sunrise or sunset adventures and head for the dunes to spot indigenous wildlife, including gazelle, oryx, lizards and birds.
Join our weekend camps that run from October to April in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve.
The experience takes the stress out of off-road exploration by guiding you and your group in your own vehicles or Sherpa 4x4s to this exclusive location. Your fully equipped camping trailer will be brought on site with a portable shower, rooftop tent, barbecue grill, fridge/freezer and much more.
Learn the basics of off-road driving from seasoned Sand Sherpas, who will show you the tow ropes, recovery techniques and how to avoid common mistakes. Our Sherpa Discovery experience instructs participants to safely manoeuvre their own 4X4 vehicles through the dunes, all with minimal impact on the natural environment.
Sand Sherpa scoured the globe to find the best hard-shell tents to equip our ex-military expedition trailer fleet. Then we worked with the manufacturer to build to our own rigorous specifications. The result is a lightweight, quick pitch and
easy-to-pack tent, built to withstand intense heat and dust. Your penthouse suite also has a moon roof that promises 50-star+ enjoyment.
NAVIGATE THE DUNES AND NOT THE INTERNET; WATCH THE FIRE AND NOT YOUR IPAD
REIMAGINE THE REGION. BE EQUIPPED FOR CHALLENGE
Your next adventure awaits and Sand Sherpa is ready to lead the way.
On your doorstep are vast open deserts, mountains and beaches that are visited by the few. You can drive over them, camp in them and explore them at will. There are very few places in the world where the wilderness is so accessible and unrestricted - but it can be daunting for the uninitiated.
