Great trip and not deer

Feel like getting back to nature? Dubai’s St George’s Society is offering the chance to do that with a trip into the desert in search of gazelle.

This adventure is free but pre-registration is essential by emailing pictureThe off-road excursion is on Saturday, January 29, meeting at 7.30am on the Lahbab Road, near the junction with the Al Ain Road (maps will be sent to those registering).

This is a desert route so a four-wheel-drive vehicle is essential. If you’ve never ventured off-road before, expert advice will be available along with recovery vehicles in case you get stuck in the sand.

The route is divided into three parts, so you can just do a morning trip or go off for the whole day.

Participants should make sure they have a full fuel tank, a tyre pressure gauge, food and drink (including lots of water!), chairs or mats for a picnic and of course, a camera.
