    This is a living dunes experience on a quad bike. It is a slower tour where you are led by an expert guide and trekker into the Namib Desert to find the living creatures of the desert. You’ve heard of the Big Five, but have you spotted the Namibian Desert Little Five? Find the Namaqua Chameleon, the fastest chameleon on earth, Shovel Snouted Lizard, Web Footed Gecko, Sidewinder Puff Adder and the Wheel Spider. After the engines are revved up and ready to roll, an experienced guide will lead you through the Swakopmund River mouth into the dune belt. Feel the freedom of riding through one of nature's great wildernesses. Your guide will educate you on all the living creatures in the desert and how they manage to survive such harsh environments.

What people are saying about Erongo

Breathtaking tour! Always happy and recommended for everyone. First we were picked up at the port because we were traveling with a cruise ship. Then it started and after about 45 minutes we arrived at the seal colonies. We all got waterproof pants and jacket including life jacket and bags for our cell phone etc. We were so close to the seals, who obviously had fun chasing our kayaks. It is not very tiring and suitable for everyone. Many children were also there, which was absolutely no problem. After the tour we got coffee, tea and muffins which were delicious. Then it went back to the port. Super tour, was really fun!

very nice secluded place with a lot of animals; great explanations on the way to the kayak place, Gregg told us everything about the area and the animals, he also stopped again and again so we could take nice photos; And at the end there were homemade muffins, which was just great

Was an awesome experience and the guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable.
