4th Edition | 11th February 2022


After a very successful launch edition in 2019, Khaleej Times returns with the fourth edition of one of its most popular annual event, the KT Desert Drive 2022. The love for the desert is something that is in common for the UAE citizens and expats alike. The KT Desert Drive experience is a must-do in Dubai, it is NOT a desert safari where you sit as a passenger at the mercy of a driver. Instead, it provides you an opportunity to self-drive your 4X4 vehicle in a guided convoy, crossing the scenic desert dunes in the UAE, while following a track with multiple checkpoints and sample signage to ensure you are proceeding in the right direction.


  • Over 500 enthusiasts will come together to drive through the deserts and feel the rush of off-roading in a controlled and safe enviroment.
  • Join the community of passionate off-roaders and make new friends while we delight you with lip-smacking food, beverages,live entertainment and much more.
  • With your safety, comfort and needs taken care of, you will experience the desert first-hand and not while sitting as a passenger.
  • Beat the monotonous life and get closer to nature, only to go back with memories of a lifetime and the desire to do it again.
