We were picked up by our guide shihab who was fantastic the whole day. He took us to the camp where the buggies were it was a bit of a drive but well worth it. The buggies were amazing it was well organised and we’d definitely do it again. We were taken to a second camp for the remaining activities and the BBQ the whole experience was amazing and it was a massive part because of our guide (Shihab) who was there at every point and made sure we made the most of the day. Highly recommend

It is true that you take the buggy yourself, but there is a guide in front of you who will mark the route for you. There are restrictions in terms of speed, driving style, ... To go in walk mode, the circuit is good, if you hope to have a little more adrenaline, it is not the best option. Overall good.
