We're going to send you to the desert!

An off-road adventure in a class of its own! As Paris-Dakar legend Cyril Despres' passenger, you'll race through the Liwa Desert in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi in a ready-to-race Rally Raid Car. In addition, the French superstar will show you how you can test the limits of reality, all in just two days, at the wheel of a PS-powered Polaris 1000cc Turbo Buggy. And who knows more about racing than he does? Cyril Despres is a five-time Rally Dakar winner and is nothing short of a Rally Raid Sports master. On the sand, he can teach you how to squeeze out the last bit of acceleration from the manoeuvrable buggy. A dream for every rally fan. Between the high-speed laps around the desert, you can relax as you please at the luxury hotel, Qasr Al Sarab, in Abu Dhabi. Sounds fantastic, but it's not a mirage. Book your travel package for the Rally Raid Tour through the Liwa Desert!

I’m enjoying life, enjoying racing and enjoying giving something back to a sport that has given me so much.

Highlights

Motorsport legend: Cyril Despres, five-time champion of the Dakar Rally in the motorcycle category and an absolute expert on the topic of Rally Raid cars. Cyril is your personal coach for this desert tour.
You are the sandstorm! Using the Polaris 1000cc Turbo Buggies, you can sweep through the desert at top speed – always under the professional guidance of Cyril Despres.
An endless expanse: The Liwa Desert belongs to the Rub'al Khali Desert, which extends over more than 650,000 km² - enough space to make a few unforgettable laps with a buggy.
Co-pilot at the Dakar Winner Rally: Sit in the passenger seat of the Rally Raid Car, right next to Cyril Despres. Experience firsthand how gracefully a champion can control his vehicle - even at the highest of speeds. Breathtaking!
A desert fairy tale: You will spend one night in a luxurious Bedouin tent camp organized by the 5-star Hotel Qasr Al Sarab.
United Arab Emirates

Abu Dhabi

Your training ground: the largest sand desert in the world. Camels, desert jumping mice and rally drivers – among the few living beings who voluntarily stay in the Rub'al Khali desert. The temperature differences between day and night can be up to 60 degrees Celsius. The vast sandy sea stretches across Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen. To the north of this desert lies the Liwa Desert. From here, you can reach the highest elevation in this region, the Moreeb dune, with a height of 120 meters. It's the climb in particular that offers enduro riders and buggy specialists alike the ideal conditions for daring ascents and descents. The Liwa Desert will be your personal test track on which Cyril Despres will introduce you to the art of upscale rally sports. Welcome!
