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. As the towering dunes approach, you’ll weave your way through the smaller dunes towards the Amphitheater. Power up and blast your way to the top of the first big dune via the Roller Coasters to the top of Big Billy. Stop for a drink and get the opportunity to capture the stark and savage beauty of the Namib Desert.

After the ride you will be led back to where everything started where you can relax and enjoy a dri...

    Quad biking has been on my bucket list for as long I can remember. Although it’s finally ticked off, I’d do it over and over again. That’s how much fun, exciting and thrilling the experience was for me. Highly recommended - a must do activity.

A well-organized tour with punctual pick-up from the cruise terminal and timely return to the ship, so that you don't have to worry about missing the ship. The day before you will also be contacted again by e-mail and the pick-up will be confirmed. It is particularly gratifying that the tours are carried out at a much lower price than the boat excursions.

We were all alone with Chris. It was an incredibly beautiful tour and we were able to learn more about Namibia, the desert, animals and culture and of course what we booked. Mega rides through the dunes and sandboarding was awesome too! Thank you for this great experience! Gladly again!

Booking and communication simple and easy. Nice staff and competent tour guides. We as beginners were well looked after and familiarized with the quad. Our tour guide was very careful and always kept an eye on us.
