Arrived solo and joined a group for a quad biking tour. Group I was with were a little on the older side, and were inexperienced with riding. Though a rookie myself, I got a manual 250cc and we set off. After a short while it was apparent that I wanted to go faster, so the guide organised for someone to... More

We were on the 2 hour tour - father and son. We had such a great time with our guide- he was awesome! Not sure who had the most fun- us or him! This company and the 2 hour tour - highly recommended!

Had so much fun with the quad bike. Driving up and down on the sand dunes. Seeing the sun sets. Definitely a must do thing in swakopmund Our tour guide is very experience and gave us some good insights of the desert. Reminder to put on a jacket or a thin jersey, it gets quite windy and chilling

I knew we were going into the dunes on quads and that's about all I knew. We had a great guide and did the Desert Explorer tour, so not the adrenaline junkie ones. It was a great balance of nature and fun as we did lots of adrenaline encouraging things. Our guide found wildlife in the most unusual places and... More
