Absolutely loved this experience
Jun 2021
Such fabulous and friendly staff, a real joy. My teenage kids loved quad biking over the dunes. My son was more advanced and went with a group that wanted to go faster, so he was thrilled to be able to ‘open it up’. My daughter and i were first timers, so we took it easy for the first half an hour, but with a little practice we were soon making our own tracks and whizzing around with abandon. The kids enjoyed the sandboarding and we all came back exhilirated and ready to go again.

UNMATCHED VIEWS AND THRILLING QUAD BIKING ON THE NAMIB DUNES!
Apr 2021
I love Swakopmund and if you're looking for a thrill and incredible views this is the experience to pick! We went in the afternoon and had a quick tutorial on how to use the bikes. The staff was to the point and got us out onto the desert in under 20 minutes - which I appreciated as I wanted to spend as much time on the dunes as possible!

We had so much fun we even took my 1 year old niece with us! Just ask for a baby carrier and you are all set. The instructor took loads of photos and the views ... that was the highlight! There's nothing quite like being at the top of a dune on one of Africa's deserts as the sun sets. It was really breathtaking.

The quad biking was thrilling although the instructors were very cautious ... I still got to get my thrill!

The staff was very hospitable and friendly. I went there 3 days in a row, I would personally recommend tours from 1.5 to 2 hours to have time to enjoy the beautiful desert landscapes

Epic adventure!

We booked the 3 hour Quad Biking & Sandboarding combo - highly recommend it! Awesome experience with the fantastic Desert Explorers team. Lazarus was our guide and was exceptional. We got fetched from our accommodation, and dropped off after our activity.

Overall, a must do in Swakopmund, and you can fully rely on Desert Explorers to give you the best experience.

Don't forget sunscreen :)

We did the 3 hour Quad tour and absolutely loved it. Beautiful scenery and we even went sand sliding which was a BLAST. Great value for the investment and so happy we took the time to do it.
