We had a wonderful outing in a group of nine, very well led by Mark, the owner. It is amazing what you can do on a fat bike on desert sand. Totally different from any other experience, really good!

We signed up for a ‘low-tide beach cruise’ in the morning and ‘the scenic desert tour’ in the afternoon. Our guide was Rich. Not only we did fatbiking, we also learned a lot about the ocean and desert. We really had a blast. Recommended!!!

Our fatbike tour on the dunes was a great experience. We enjoyed the ride and specially the drops. My MTB friends are jealous about the nice photos. Mark explained many things about Swakopmund and the desert. Really satisfied!!
