Last Liwa Trip – 19th/20th April 2019

This is my last tag along trip in Liwa – just a week or so after I will be selling my car and preparing to head back to the UK.  We will have two drives, and I will be assisted by Karim from Rub Alkhali Desert Tourism.

Please note we have recced the route  today(27 mar); although not advanced, due to all the recent sandstorms it has some tricky bits here and there and we do not recommend this trip for absolute beginners.  Ideally you will have completed at least one trip with us over the last three seasons.

Head into the desert – let’s go and sit on the tanker for one last time!

Return to road, drive to Liwa Hotel where we will chill out, relax and stay overnight.

Please note that the hotel swimming pool is currently closed for maintenance; please take camping chairs and we will go and sit outside in their garden for a blether (chat!)
