6 Important Tips to Follow on Dune Buggy Desert Safari

Follow these 6 tips for an enjoyable and exciting dune buggy tour:

  • Book a Buggy Ride From a Reputed Tour Company

Always book your dune buggy ride from a well-reputed tour company. Currently, many companies offer desert rides, but their service and overall quality differ very much. Before choosing a company, read the customer reviews and see the company’s rating to ensure you are choosing the right one.

Also before choosing see what type of safety standards the company whether it is licensed to conduct buggy tours in Dubai. Most companies display certifications to showcase their credibility.

  • Wear the Safety Equipment Provided

As mentioned, dune buggy tours are risky, so always wear the safety equipment the tour company provides. The equipment includes a reinforced helmet that protects the head, a pair of gloves for better grip on buggy handlebars, and goggles that stop dust and other particles from getting in the eye.

Please ensure that the equipment fits you properly and is not too tight which will make the ride uncomfortable. If you find any such issues ask the tour company to replace the equipment. Never go on a buggy ride without wearing safety gear even if you are a professional rider.

  • Choose Appropriate Clothes

Wear appropriate clothes when going to the desert for a dune buggy adventure or any other activity. As we all know the desert features a hot and dusty environment which might make some people uncomfortable who are not accustomed to it. Therefore clothing matters a lot.

For men, we would recommend they wear shorts/trousers with T-shirts. Don’t wear tight clothes or jeans. Women can wear skirts or shalwar kameez. For footwear go with close-toed shoes and women should avoid wearing heels because they are not suitable for desert surfaces.

Tips to Follow on Dune Buggy Desert Safari
  • Pack Essential Items

Remember to pack a few essential items that might come in handy during the buggy tour. This includes a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen lotion, and a water bottle because you will likely feel thirsty during the ride and it’s always good to keep hydration levels high. Bring a camera to record the beautiful desert sights and memorable moments of the tour. Keep all these items in a small hand-carry bag during the tour.

Dune buggies come in various models which vary according to engine type and seating capacity. The popular models are Polaris and Can-Am buggies.

Further, the tourists can choose the tour duration as they desire. The most common ones are 1,2 and 4-hour tours.
