However, if you can take risks, you may choose a challenging route for maximum enjoyment. Moreover, you need to pick the right desert dune buggy as there are several options available. Consider your budget, type of terrain, and your driving style before you pick a buggy.
2. Wear Safety Equipment
Wearing safety equipment and appropriate clothing is essential for the buggy ride. Be sure that your helmet properly fits the head without causing any discomfort. Also, use sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sand and wear knee pads to be safe. During summer season, it is also essential to wear gloves to avoid skin burns caused by the scorching heat. Dune Buggy Adventure provides all the safety equipment because there is nothing more important to us than your well being.
3. Take Good Care Of Skin

Make sure to bring sunscreen and lotion to protect your skin against ultraviolet rays and apply it throughout the day of your tour as you will be spending hours in the desert. After all, it is always better to plan ahead and take precautions to avoid any mishap.
4. Keep Yourself Refreshed
Dune buggy ride experience can be exhausting, so staying hydrated should be the utmost priority. Drink lots and lots of water to prevent dehydration, it will also boost your energy levels. As the adventure takes place in Dubai’s hot desert climate, you will likely sweat a great deal during the ride, so it’s best to carry a water bottle when you are on the go. At Dune Buggy Adventure, we have packages with refreshment options, so if you feel thirsty during the ride, ask our tour guide to provide water and snacks. Also, remember not to eat anything heavy before the ride to avoid an upset stomach. Dune buggy rides are bumpy and having a heavy stomach might make you feel nauseous and ruin your whole experience.
5. Drive Your Buggy At A Safe Speed
Another important tip is keeping it safe from fellow dune buggy drivers, otherwise you all might get hurt. Carefully drive when in the field, and if you see other buggies approaching near you, slow down to avoid any fatal collision. Desert terrain is rough, and braking a fast-moving buggy might be difficult, but you can easily do it with little practice and patience. Driving your desert dune buggy at a safe speed is essential as it will let you handle the buggy at sharp turns and slow down whenever needed. Ask your tour guide about the speed limit and other factors to keep it safe in the sand. Also, regardless of buggy, any vehicle you drive at a proper speed keeps you safe from injury and accidents.

Before staring the ride, inspect your rental dune buggy for any faulty part that could result in an accident. Make sure you test-drive the buggy and notice any strange sounds from the engine. If any peculiar sounds come from the engine, immediately reject that buggy and request a new one. Additionally, ensure that the handlebars are securely mounted, the fuel tank is full, and the breaks are working correctly. After completing this thorough inspection, you may proceed to your dune buggy tour.
