We went on a dune-bashing trip in the desert outside Abu Dhabi. Basically, the trucks rip up and down these dunes as fast as they can without rolling.
It was like a rollercoaster ride - but definitely not for those with a queasy stomach or back problems!
This is a photo of the other car that was with us - it definitely pays to have two cars so you can get photos/videos of each other.
The company we went with, Arabian Adventures, is highly recommended. The driver was a real pro.
They restrict their dune bashing to a small area, to minimize the impact to the dunes.

Really stunning breathless moment, Ian
The huge sand dune makes a big impact with such an upright angle when it is compared to a tiny wagon. The situation looks nice soft light.
But anyway, I wound never be in the ride. Can I get out?
Thank you for sharing a breathless image,
