Full description
Buggy Safaris offers a new dimension to off-road exploring. Ride one of the twin-seater, 800cc buggies and set off on this unique adventure around the Dubai Desert. Explore the region’s majestic sand dunes, climbing up and over peaks and valleys, and taking in the amazing scenery. Your guide will show you the best routes to take and will make sure you ride at a pace that you find comfortable. If you’re feeling a bit tired, stop for a breather and some refreshments before heading off into the sandy dunes once again. For your comfort and safety each dune buggy comes equipped with a full roll cage, bucket seats, and a full safety harness.

The buggy ride in the dunes was an amazing experience and one of the best memories of our trip! Our driver John gave us a lot of interesting facts about Dubai and it was really nice getting to know more about life there. We were picked up from our hotel and driven to the desert and back. The buggy ride in the desert was so much fun and the buggies are in great condition. We highly recommend!

Well arranged and was fun to do. We were picked up in our hotel lobby 5 minutes before the agreed time by a very nice man named Chocolate Khan. After we had picked up another couple, we were brought to the location under the guidance of some nice stories about Dubai and the desert. When we arrived, we were given the opportunity to purchase a scarf, which they immediately put on. The activity was explained, we drove 25 minutes, stopped 10 minutes to take some pictures (where the supervisors had very creative ideas!) And afterwards drove another 25 minutes. Then we were neatly returned! In short: fantastic arranged!
