Beyond the action of an exhilarating dune-bashing experience, it was the KT Desert Drive's team of marshals that had made the adventure an unforgettable one, participants have said.

To ensure everyone's safety at all times, the annual event tapped into the expertise of some of the most experienced off-road marshals in the country. Marshal Nizam from Jeepers Edition led the pack from the front, along with more than a dozen experts.

Murtuza, a desert drive participant, lauded how the marshals supported them when they hit difficult terrain.

“The marshals have helped us throughout the drive — starting from deflation to tackling the route, then guiding us through steep sandy hills,” Murtuza said.

German expat Kaleen, one of the marshals, agreed that the terrain was very challenging but the participants loved every second of the drive.

“The dunes are breathtaking. I’ve been doing desert drives for quite a long time now but this is different. A lot of first-time dune-bashers came with us this year, aiding and guiding them has been a fulfilling task for us,” Kaleen said.

The carefully thought-out route saw drivers make their way through varying levels of terrain, from easy ones to the toughest, steepest slopes. Marshals and rescue teams were all on standby to ensure safety.
