The Quad Bikes have large tires that can throw mud right into the face of the next biker. And this will need you to have a right choice of clothing so as to avert being affected by this mud or dust. We recommend you dress on clothings that will give you comfort during the activity. Bikers need loose/light clothing preferably a tracksuit or leggings. Other clothings like overalls and gumboots to protect against mud and watery surface will be provided by the quad biking company but in case you have your own, you can also carry them. Cameras carried must also be kept in dust and water resistant bags.
The best and ideal time for doing this fun quad biking activity in Jinja is during the rainy seasons. The more mud in the ground, the better as sliding makes the activity more exciting.
