Oryx 4x4 club organizes on-road and off-road events in the UAE that are fun, safe, friendly, and family oriented. Our main goal is to arrange weekly off-roading trips for beginning, intermediate, and/or advanced drivers. We also host weekly on-road events in Abu Dhabi and/or Dubai. We welcome people who are thinking about buying 4x4s to come along on our trips as a passenger. We use this Meetup group to reach out to new members.
Driving Levels So far most of the trips we have done in the new club have been newbie/junior oryx level trips. We have a number of people who have already completed many trips or came from another club with many drives finished.
For the sake of enjoying the desert, all members should be at the level that is SAFE, challenging, and fun for them. We do specific trips to determine when someone should switch to the next level. To switch to the next level a driver should have mastered the skills required and also have the required equipment. Beginners are not expected to have any skill or equipment. We will help you with that when you join us!
We have a rubric that lists the skills for each level as well as the equipment necessary. Visit our website to view the rubric.
Coming to Oryx4x4 from other clubs Some members are joining from other offroading groups in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. When you register on our website, please send a PM to a marshal to have your driving level in Oryx match your level in the other club.
