What to Wear For a Dune Buggy Adventure in Dubai?

Dune Buggy Dubai

Dubai has a very hot and arid climate that everyone knows about. The temperature during the day usually reaches above 45°C during the summer, thus making it difficult to try any outdoor activity. In winter it’s usually around 26-30°C, which is still warm and nights get colder.

So, if you are thinking of trying desert adventures like dune buggy Dubai during your visit you must wear appropriate clothing so you don’t feel uncomfortable and have a relaxing experience. To help you make this decision wisely we have written this detailed blog post explaining what you should wear on your Dubai desert trip depending on the season and time of day. So let’s get started.

Understanding the Climate of Dubai and UAE

Understanding the weather in Dubai is crucial before choosing what to wear on a buggy ride. There are only two seasons in the region, summer and winter, with a small amount of rain.

Summer starts around the middle of April and lasts until the beginning of October. It is common for temperatures to reach 45°C (113°F) during the daytime, and humidity to be incredibly high. Consider an overnight package or timing if you visit the Dubai desert during the summer.

In contrast, winter provides a wide range of options. It starts in November and lasts till mid-March. Temperatures in winter can reach a maximum of 31°C (88°F) during the day and dip to 15°C (59°F) at night.

What to Wear for Your Buggy Rental Dubai Ride in the Desert?

The experience of riding a dune buggy is undoubtedly on the bucket list of many visitors in Dubai. However, before heading down to the desert, you must be dressed correctly to avoid discomfort during the ride.

  • Wear Clothes Made With Light Fabrics

Choosing light, breathable clothing is the best choice when dressing for a desert trip. Avoid wearing synthetic fabrics and choose natural fabrics like linen and cotton clothes. They are comfortable and ideal for both summer and winter use.

When selecting a color palette, we recommend using brighter, more vibrant colors like classic whites or blues. They protect you from harmful UV rays and make you look great in photographs when you pose in the desert.

  • Try the Combination of Full-length Trousers and Long-sleeved Shirts

Long-sleeved tops and full-length trousers are the perfect summer outfit for a desert safari.

While shorts might be a good idea in summer, be aware that dune buggy rides can get very dusty and sand can get on your legs, making your whole tour uncomfortable. So that’s why it’s better to wear trousers.

  • Jacket, Hoodie, or Shawl for Winter

Winters in the desert can be extremely cold, especially if you are trying dune buggy rides during the early morning hours or at night. That’s why it is important to bring along some jackets and hoodies which you can wear around this time. Even if you don’t wear them you can store them easily.

  • Footwear Choices

Choosing the right footwear for your Dubai desert adventure is also important as with other dressing items. We recommend wearing sneakers or close-toed shoes that way your feet are protected from debris in the desert as well as from injuries. Although you can wear sandals and flip-flops too if you want but they don’t provide much protection.

  • Hat and Sunglasses

Protection against sun rays is very important to consider if you go on a desert tour. Remember to bring a hat and sunglasses to wear here, and even if you don’t have one, you can buy them from local shops in the desert in cash.

Next, use sunscreen lotion on your body if you can; it also helps to protect against harmful UV rays.

What You Need to Avoid Wearing on Dune Buggy Desert Ride?

Do keep in mind to avoid wearing these things when going to the Dubai desert:

  • High heels. It is advisable to avoid wearing high heels due to their dangers and not suitable for walking on sand.
  • Tight-fitting clothing. Choose loose-fitting and breathable clothes to ensure air circulation and a cooling effect. It is not advisable to wear tight-fitting or uncomfortable clothing.
  • Jewelry or Expensive Items.Wearing necklaces, bracelets, or dangling earrings while driving can cause you to become entangled in dune buggies so it’s best to avoid them. Also, there is always a risk of their being stolen.


We hope you understand in detail what to wear on your dune buggy Dubai adventure. So start preparing for the most incredible time you will have while traversing the beautiful Arabian desert landscape.
