Dubai Outdoor activities for "Isra & Miraj Night" week end !

  • Published in Blog

Why a day off in Dubai ? 

The 22, 23 24 of may 2014 most of Dubai people will have time to enjoy a long week end. For the most curious among us Isra & Miraj Night is the moment where Muhammad traveled on the steed Buraq to "the farthest mosque" where he leads other prophets in prayer. He then ascends to heaven where he speaks to God, who gives Muhammad instructions to take back to the faithful regarding the details of prayer. According to traditions, the journey is associated with the Lailat al Mi'raj, as one of the most significant events in the Islamic calendar

What to bring with you for buggy trips

  • Published in Blog

Not that much!

We provide you water and soft drinks (or hot tea for winter trips). Each buggy is equipped with a first aid kit the leading buggy has the required tools needed in case a buggy gets stuck. Your leader has experience of off-road terrain and is trained to handle any situation that may occur.

There are however some items you should bring:

A camera, the strongest available sun block, a scarf to put around your mouth and nose (especially for mountain trips) a long sleeved t-shirt (to protect you from the sun). You do not need to wear long trousers, shorts will work perfectly well, or closed shoes, sandals will be adequate.

In winter, don't forget to take a jacket, as the weather can be cold or wet.

Can we do the buggy trip at night?

  • Published in Blog

Due to high demand, Buggy Adventures is in the process of creating an over-night buggy camping trip so our customers can experience the quiet of the beautiful desert sky full of stars, far from the light pollution of the city, with the added thrill of buggy driving in the dark. It is a truly fulfilling experience and a chance for drivers and passengers to see wild animals that are only ordinarily seen by night.

Until we launch that service, we would advise our customers against going buggy driving at night alone for two reasons:

1You will not be able to see the landscape and the beauty of it.

2Driving in sand dunes at night is dangerous because you cannot see the depth of sand dunes. A path that may appear flat could in reality be a steep downward dune slope, something which is hazardous for the inexperienced driver.

When our night-time buggy trips launch, it will be best to choose a full moon night to provide you with more light and to drive slowly and carefully, making sure you follow the leader who knows the desert well enough to guide you through it safely in the dark.

Who knows? You may even see the legendary desert “jinn” or “genie spirit” moving across the desert !

Six golden rules for buggy trips from June to September

  • Published in Blog

1Set off early, or set off late, for example, between 6am and 10am and 5pm to 7pm. At this time of day, the sun will be low in the sky and the heat will be less, so you will get a much clearer view of the colours of the desert.

2Always drink plenty of water.

3Try to cover your body as much as possible by wearing a light but long sleeved t-shirt or other long sleeves.

4Avoid staying too long in direct sunlight.

5Bring your strongest sun block.

6Exercise fanatics, save it for another occasion - running about in the sand is tiring anyway, but add high temperatures to that, and you will exhaust yourselves very quickly.

If you stick to these golden rules, you will be surprised how pleasant a summer buggy trip can be.

It is worth noting that a mountain buggy trip takes you to 600m altitude, at which the temperature decreases by a few degrees. When you take a desert buggy trip, you will get away from the humidity of the coast and into a wide open landscape where there is more of a breeze. On both trips, you will also get away from heat producing cars and air conditioning units that both add a few degrees to the summer heat, making it feel hotter than it really is.

Buggies in Dubai summer ?

  • Published in Blog

Can the buggies take the heat?

The answer to this is actually, “yes” however, taking them out during the hottest parts of the day is not recommended. We have tried our buggies in these conditions on the roughest roads and steepest hills and they managed perfectly without overheating as they are tough, durable machines made of heavy-duty parts.

However, we noticed that the tyres were got really hot which means there was a danger of them exploding on contact with the hot sand. We also found that the power of the engine was reduced, and that some rubber cooling pipes expanded, and while we did not have any total breakdowns, we felt that that was certainly a risk. So, we concluded that the best way to preserve the buggy’s engine, and to prevent any mechanical failure, was to avoid driving during the hottest time of the day.

We are happy to content ourselves by making sure our trips take place before 10am and after 5pm, to avoid putting the buggy, and more importantly the driver and passenger, at risk.

Desert Buggy Trip in Summer !

  • Published in Blog

Are desert buggy trips possible during the summer?

Summer buggy trips that take place between 10am and 4pm will leave you as red as a tomato and extremely dehydrated. Even the best sun block money can buy will make very little difference because of the intense heat at this time of year. And, you won’t see any wildlife, just the odd crazy human or two, because animals are sensible enough to stay under cover during the day’s most intense heat, which can be as high as 50C, which, you don’t need me to tell you, is unbearable.

It is worth remembering that we have the heat to thank for the beautiful wilderness that we know as the "desert". If the rain was more frequent and stable, the desert would actually be a beautiful forest, as, all the red sand needs is a little fertiliser and water to allow it to produce foliage. It is for this reason that red sand is used for gardens and agriculture in the UAE.

To come back to our topic, the best time for a buggy trip in the summer is either early in the morning, from sunrise to 9am, or from 5pm until sunset. At these times, there is normally a breeze due to the difference of temperature between night and day, making the desert more pleasant place to be. With the sun lower in the sky, there is less glare meaning you will be able to enjoy more of the landscape’s beauty, including the different colours of sand and the pink tones of fossil rocks.
