However, before going on such an excursion in challenging deserts it is important to plan ahead so you don’t face any problems or miss out on anything on this exciting ride.

To help you prepare, here are a few important tips for the dune buggy ride Dubai adventure. By following these, we guarantee that you will have an incredible time exploring the vast dunes at night and enjoy memorable moments with your friends and family.

How to Prepare For Nighttime Dune Buggy Ride Dubai

Remember these 7 tips when preparing for an off-roading trip at night in Dubai:

  • Booking and Confirmation of Ride

Please ensure that you have confirmed your booking with the tour company about the exact time and date. It’s better to book a buggy ride in advance, especially during the peak tourist season, usually winter.

If you have added a pick-and-drop service from the city, be sure to confirm the pickup timing and location as well. The cost for dune buggy rides in Dubai varies according to the time duration and model of the vehicle. So remember to book a trip that meets your group preferences. If you are with a family then a 4-seater buggy is the best choice.

  • Wear Proper and Comfortable Clothes

Since you’ll be off-roading in the desert at nighttime, you must wear appropriate clothes in which you feel comfortable. Wear lightweight and comfortable clothes. Men can wear shorts or trousers, which offer comfort when driving a buggy and women can wear long skirts or long-sleeved tops. Nights usually get cold, so bringing a jacket, sweater, or shawl is better.

As far as footwear is concerned, you are advised to wear closed-toe shoes to prevent injury and to maintain a firm grip on the pedals and sand. Since it’s night, you don’t need to worry too much about the sun or heat.

  • Inspect Your Buggy

You must inspect your buggy for a nighttime off-roading experience to ensure everything works properly. The first thing to check is the headlights, which you’ll need to navigate the desert, and secondly, the brakes and clutch controls.

It’s better to take the vehicle for a short test drive, and if you notice anything concerning, report it to your tour company and have them take a look or ask them to replace the buggy.

  • Follow the Safety Briefings and Driving Guidelines

Remember to follow your tour guide’s safety instructions and do as they say. The first thing to do is to wear the safety equipment provided, which includes a helmet, a pair of goggles, and gloves. Please ensure the equipment fits the body properly and is not loose or tight.

Secondly, drive your buggy on the designated path with your headlight ‘ON’ and at a safe speed limit. In case you get lost or go too far away, contact the tour guide immediately so they can locate you.

  • Choose ‘Guided Tours

If you are new to desert adventures or have never driven a buggy before, then it is better to opt for ‘Guided Tours.’ The tour guides can teach all the basics of the buggy and which driving techniques to follow on the challenging desert terrain. Also, sometimes, these guides might come with you on the tour to ensure your safety and well-being. You won’t have to worry about getting lost at night or getting into trouble.

  • Drink Water and Take Some Rest

Besides being a thrilling excursion, the dune buggy rides on tough desert terrain are also physically exhausting. That’s why resting during the tour and drinking water to keep your body hydrated is essential. Bring a water bottle or ask your tour guide to provide one.

  • Preparation for Photos

The Dune Buggy Tour provides many photography opportunities, so make sure your phone or camera is fully charged and ready to go before you embark on the tour. During the journey, there will be stops so that you can sit back and enjoy the experience before posing for photographs.


By following these tips, we guarantee that you will have a relaxing and enjoyable Dune buggy Dubai adventure at nighttime.
