We had a bike ride on 30/10 with Naftali. We had an absolutely amazing tour of the townships. Our guide was dedicated, knowledgeable and able to give us excellent answers to all our questions. We learned a lot and this was one of the highlights of our stay in Namibia. Highly recommended!

Great to get out of the holiday bubble and see the how real life for most Namibian people looks like in reality. The 2 guides were friendly and clear and showed us interesting spots! Happy to have seen this!

This was an absolutely great experience with Lorenzo. He is a perfect guide. He showed us the township and gave so much inside information. We went through the different parts of the township on our bikes. It was perfectly organized and just very well done, showing the different parts, people, customs, food ... We will never forget, what we learned there. Recommendable for everyone who wants to see also another side of life in Namibia besides the beautiful landcapes, luxlury lodges ... makes it a bit more complete.

Very well-organized and easy to book. We were picked up promptly by Lorenzo (our guide) and taken to the bicycles. Lorenzo gave us so much information about Namibia's history, personal experiences, life in the township, healthcare, etc etc. He was very pleasant to spend the afternoon with. We visited a few families, a local bar, a food market, and different areas in the township. We even had a bicycle breakdown, but Lorenzo fixed it right away! We felt 100% safe and that this tour was an excellent way to give back to the community there. Highly highly recommended. Thank you so much, Lorenzo!

If you only do one thing is Swakopmund, this is it! We took the biking tour which we think brought us closer to local people. It was eye-opening to cycle through the streets full of shacks. Our local guide Lorenzo was just excellent, provided us with lots of background information and encouraged us to ask whatever we wanted to know. We could have spent many more hours on this tour and with Lorenzo if we only had time! Visiting local families, eating at a local barbeque and having beers at a local bar were some of the highlights of the tour. All in all, extremely interesting tour and not at all awkward, scary or touristy but very authentic - we highly recommend this tour and especially with Lorenzo!
