Desert safari in Dubai.

As the name explains it is all about exploring sand dunes of the desert. Generally, sport utility vehicles such as Toyota Land Cruiser are used as they have a lesser risk of getting stuck in the sand. The vehicles come with a roll cage as a security measure for the passengers in case the vehicle overturns.

Great image! All that action.

This is an amazing capture! The way the Land Cruisers weave through it draws the eye across the image and up from bottom to top so the viewer takes it all in. it is like looking for lost toys in a sand box and has a surreal feeling! BV
