If you are looking for a way to get in some unique sightseeing in Abu Dhabi along with an adrenaline rush sign up for a desert safari.

The Middle East has vast tracks of desert home to towering sand dunes; this makes the perfect setting for the thrill-a-second activity known as sandboarding. It’s an extreme sport which is pretty much the same as snowboarding, just with mountains of sand instead of mountains of snow!
