As this drive is a beginners drive, it is setup differently than our regular drives. Attendees will fall into one of the following rolls:

• NewBie: Someone who is new to desert driving and wants to learn driving in the desert.

• Passengers : People who love LD and want to come just for the fun.

** Important Note for passengers: We will not be assigning anyone to any car, please contact the car drivers to see if you can be their +1

This is an off-road/desert drive for newbies. So if you have a 4x4 and want to experience drive in the desert, this drive is for you.

We will start with a detailed briefing session, some tea & snacks. Then we are off to a light and enjoyable desert track. This trip will help newbies get the knowledge, skills and confidence to navigate the desert curves.

Getting stuck is part of the desert drive experience; so don’t worry. The LD Marshals will do their best to help you out.
