PLEASE PUT THE RADIO ON CHANNEL 4 AND AWAIT INSTRUCTIONS.
We will signal on the Radio as we approach the station and you can join the convoy, which will be passing by. 
The convoy will not stop here.

Drive Route: Picturesque tall Dunes and lots of sand trails
Drive Terrain: Unbelievably beautiful inimitable Liwa!!! 

The Season is on again, with the weather showing an affinity for lower temperature.
The best way obviously, to welcome the onset of the off Roading and Camping season again will be with a visit to the Real "Umm Al Ramoul", The Mother of all deserts the Rub Al Khaali...meaning The Empty Quarter...in plain English!!

Info about lovely Liwa by our club founder Mr Ahmed Pervez.

The Rub' al Khali (Arabic: الربع الخالي‎) or Empty Quarter is one of the largest sand deserts in the world, encompassing most of the southern third of the Arabian Peninsula, including southern Saudi Arabia, and areas of Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen. The desert covers some 650,000 square kilometres , Liwa Oasis is about 100 km south of the Arabian Gulf coast and 150 km SSW of the city of Abu Dhabi, on the northern edge of Rub' al Khali desert and stretches about 100 km east-west, along an arch curved to the north.

The geographic and economic center of the oasis is Mizair'a, where the highway from Abu Dhabi enters the oasis and then divides to the east (65 km to the easternmost village, Mahdar Bin `Usayyan) and west (45 km to the westernmost village, `Aradah).

The villages of Liwa Oasis are the southernmost settlements of Abu Dhabi and of the United Arab Emirates. The southern border of Abu Dhabi with Saudi Arabia, which runs at a distance between 16 and 35 km to the Oasis, is a straight line in the Rub al Khali desert, which is largely uninhabited.

Duration: We will have a tarmac drive OF approx. 150kms. that will take us from the meeting point to the desert entrance point, which is a fuel station, We will fill fuel here and start a day long desert drive, until just before sunset which will bring us to our camping spot in the Dunes. We will camp here, have a BBQ & make merry till late. The camp will be wrapped up for a 9.00am departure in the morning for a nearby fuel station to fill up on fuel and we will inflate the tyre and head back home to arrive in Dubai / Sharjah by afternoon on Saturday the 15th Dec 2018.

I just found on the same day of the drive we will be lucky to see GEMINIDS METEOR SHOWER while camping

Hello m_nagar
There is no option of leaving same day night as we will camp far from road and we don't recommend to drive in the night special newbie/fewbie level member.
Only in case of emergency we can exit at night.
