    Default Desert Camping, Abu Dhabi

    This fantastic camping spot we found off the truck road between Abu Dhabi and Al Ain it's a nice high vantage spot that looks out over the desert, a great place to set up camp, have a BBQ, drink a few beers and watch the desert sunset.

    The XC90 is great in the sand.

    Good to see the case of UK Beers!

    How did you find the suspension coped with driving over the 'ruts' in the sand, or were there none in the area that you pulled off the truck road onto?

    Those beers aren't cheap here, but well worth it!

    The suspension was fine on the rough roads but I suspect that the standard (non sport suspension) is nicer on the rutted roads. Our XC90 spends most of it's life on sealed roads ferrying kids about and the sport suspension is great! although the amount of speed humps around leaves a lot to be desired.
