Instructor patient with myself and an older New Zealander couple as none of us had been on the bikes recently. Value for money very good - recommended if you have time and want a bit of a rush. Just be sure not to put your feet on the ground if you lose control. Just dive in the other direction of... More

My 12 yr old daughter and I did the quad bike tour in the desert and it was fun, fun, fun! The sights of the dunes were amazingly beautiful; something we never would have seen on foot. My daughter had some difficulty with the bike at first and our guide was patient and thoughtful and helped her through it. Definitely... More

We did the desert explorer tour with a guide on quads and saw a lot of animals we would have never spotted, if we were alone out there.

We did a two hour combo trip with our three boys, ages 12, 9 and 9. Our guide, Niko, was excellent, especially with the boys, who had never before ridden quads. The price is a high (we paid 3000 Namibian Dollars), but we had a wonderful time.

After many places in different countries we decided to improvise and did both sqads and sandsurfing. Incredible plan and quite cheap.

We booked the 3 hour quad bike and sand boarding combo which was only R700, so a great bargain! I was very impressed by the service, especially for the fact that they were very accommodating because we did this just 4 hours before our flights, so they allowed us to customize so that we could still catch our flight. Our... More

A great 2 hours of quad bike riding in the dunes just outside Swakopmund. The cost included pick-up and drop-off from our hotel. There were only 3 in our group (they seem to keep the group numbers small) plus our leader. The course was great fun and reasonably challenging with soft sand and some steep parts. I do believe they... More

We booked the action tour, 3 hours of fun right in the desert. The explorers have their company directly and close to the dunes, so 1min of driving and you're right in it. We had some kind of a private tour, because nobody else was with us. Our guide told us a lot about the dunes, water is included to... More
