While at first glimpse the desert may appear calm and serene with its soft, undulating sand dunes, thrill-seekers can take to 4x4s for a heart-stopping off-roading safari hurtling over the sandy peaks. If that adrenaline-pumping adventure sounds a bit too wild for your tastes, there are plenty of tamer options. You might try your hand at sand-boarding or driving a dune buggy, or even riding a camel through the desert as Bedouins have for centuries.
