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. 

Few places in the world offer such ease of access into the wilderness, but too few people living and visiting the UAE get to experience it. Sand Sherpa aims to make the deserts, wadis and mountains within reach of anyone with access to a 4x4.

The objective of Sherpa Discovery is to provide each participant with sufficient knowledge of their own vehicle and the terrain they will be operating in, to be able to comfortably venture off-road with their families and friends - opening them up to a new world of leisure possibilities and shared experiences. 

The event is structured into four parts: 

ESSENTIAL EQUIPMENT: Knowing what equipment can be useful and understanding how to use it 

VEHICLE OPERATION OFF-ROAD: Setting up the vehicle for off-road operation and becoming familiar with necessary driving techniques

READING THE TERRAIN: How to negotiate ascents and descents safely and confidently

DRIVING & RECOVERY: Becoming familiar with following an off-road route, how to anticipate obstacles and challenges; as well as understand the basics of recovering a vehicle that is bogged in the sand
