Travel beyond the ordinary

Drive a buggy through the desert and over dunes and get the unique chance to take a seat next to a pro driver in a real Rally Raid race car.





Cyril Despres won the legendary Dakar Rally Bike category five times. Since he switched from two wheels to four, he has become one of the top stars on the international rally raid scene in the Car category. He triumphed at the Silk Way Rally in Russia twice and came 3rd overall at the Dakar 2017. Now for the first time, guests have the opportunity to be let in on the likeable Frenchman’s secrets regarding driving on sand, plus experience the way a Mini John Cooper Works Buggy feels on the most challenging terrains – all that in the luxurious setting of Abu Dhabi.



The Highlights

  • Cyril Despres’ co-pilot in the Mini John Cooper Works Buggy

  • 2 days through the desert at the wheel of a side-by-side off road buggy

  • Professional instructions and training with Cyril Despres

  • 3 nights at the five-star plus Qasr Al Sarab hotel

  • Overnight bivouac under the stars in a luxurious Berber tent.

The real highlight I am looking forward to, is to share the absolute great and unbelievable feeling to race with our Mini X-Raid John Cooper works Buggy.

––– Cyril Despres

I will share my rally raid experience with people without forgetting the fun part of driving with safe buggies over one of the biggest and most beautiful dunes in the world. Everybody will experience how to “read and surf” sand dunes with powerful buggies.
