SHERPA DISCOVERY: BEGINNER'S INTRODUCTION TO OFF-ROADING WITH SAND SHERPA
A self-drive experience in your own vehicle,
this four-hour event is designed as a first introduction to off-road driving, aimed at those who want to venture safely and confidently into the desert sands. It is a great chance to learn more about the environment and acquire new skills and appreciation for the land that surrounds us.
Half-day event (4 hours)
THIS EVENT IS DESIGNED AS A FIRST INTRODUCTION INTO OFF-ROAD DRIVING
Under the close supervision of your off-road guide you'll learn the essentials, before being led across the desert sands in your own vehicle/Sherpa 4x4. Basic driving and simple recovery techniques are part of the course.
We meet up at Sand Sherpa HQ in Al Sajja, Sharjah, where we start off with a 30-minute briefing before heading to our training area
(15 mins drive away). Our Driving Sherpa, Fraser Martin, is a qualified Land Rover Lead Instructor and has designed our half-day induction
to the essentials of off-road desert driving.
Exercises in slope descents and ascents are interspersed with track driving and navigating less trodden routes, while the group makes frequent stops to evaluate obstacles and review driving theory and recovery techniques when required.
Supporting vehicles are equipped with water and all necessary recovery gear, while attendance is limited to a maximum of five vehicles
(one driver per vehicle).
Our focus is on participant and vehicle safety and ensuring that you leave with the skills and knowledge to venture into the sands
with friends and family.
