What to wear for Ras Al Khaimah desert safari

During your desert safari just outside of Ras Al Khaimah, you must wear light clothes made of linen or cotton. 

Light colors don’t absorb the heat so much, thus keeping you cool even during high temperatures.

It is better to wear a long-sleeved top and full-length trousers so that your skin is not exposed. 

If you wear shorts, you will accumulate sand in uncomfortable places.

Please apply lots of sunscreens to your exposed skin throughout the trip.

Flip flops or sandals work better than shoes because sand gets into closed footwear, making walking uncomfortable.

Shades are an absolute must. Get a wide-brimmed hat if you want to keep the sun at bay.

If you are booked for an evening or overnight desert safari, carry warm wear like sweaters, cardigans, etc., to manage the temperature drop as the sun goes down.
