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.

Pick up and was seamless. khan did a great job with that. some of our group thought the buggy drives was rather lack luster and boring. while other found them exhilarating. Some of our group also opted to pay additional for the camel ride, which was $30 USD. Also the desert bandanna we were charged $15 USD which was a complete rip-off. Where this company comes up short is the communication between the point of contact and the customers. Messages weren't responded to via WhatsApp timely. and I had to ask the same question multiple times before getting a response. Still waiting on a reply regarding an item.left behind.

Pick up was very prompt, our driver “Chocolate” Khan, was waiting and the car nicely air conditioned. He was super friendly, witty and charming. The drive to the buggy went quickly, though was just under an hour, which was expected. On arrival at the buggy, Atta met us and took us on the tour, we followed his tracks- it was certainly fast enough with ample time to switch over - we both had around 25 mins or so of driving over the dunes. Atta took loads of videos and photos with my phone and we also stopped for pictures with a Camel. Atta was friendly, helpful and welcoming. We would highly recommend this activity.

This was an amazing experience and we would recommend 100%. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel, to the minute we were dropped back, our day was faultless. Our guide was polite courteous and very informative. He made the journey pleasant even stopping on route to buy us a cup of tea!! Once we got on the buggy our 2nd guide looked after us kept checking we were ok throughout and even stopped to see the camels and take photos. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
