Full description
Experience the sheer thrill of riding a quad bike through Namibia's boundless expanse of shifting sand dunes. 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 riding down Devil’s Dip, ride the berms, spirals and slopes as you cruise towards the Table Top, a great dune that offers a spectacular view of the sea. After the ride you will be led back to where everything started where you can relax and enjoy a drink at the pub.

The 3 hour combo was so worth it! An hour or two would simply not be enough. I absolutely loved every minute - the quad biking was so much fun and the sand boarding was a rush! My guide, Benito, was a professional, kind and funny, and he listened to what was important to me for this event.

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!

Was an absolute blast. From experiencing the breath taking landscape to the fun of riding the quads to the guide who took us. Would definitely recommend this adventure.
