Over the years, I’ve visited various deserts while traveling around the world. A few that come to mind are Wadi Rum in Jordan, the Namib Desert in Namibia and taking a desert jeep safari (aka Dune Bashing) in Dubai.
The scenery is pretty amazing but the heat can make things a bit uncomfortable not to mention there being little refuge from the sun.
Lonely Planet put together a list of The World’s Ultimate Desert Dares which includes 10 challenges. The challenges were taken from Lonely Planet’s 1,000 Ultimate Adventures.
