We decided to try the Fat Bike Adventure Tour to get some exercise and get outside, after being in the truck for many days on safari drives. This tour exceeded our expectations! Our friendly guide was very knowledgeable about the area and considerate of all ability levels in our small group of 4. It was amazing to ride over the sand with these bikes and roll through countless dunes like we were on a rollercoaster!! So nice to be outside and to get amazing views of this spectacular area!! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone that knows how to ride a bike!!

Can't recommend this trip enough to anyone heading to Swakopmund, views are incredible and the adrenaline rush of the downhills is 10/10. A decent level of fitness is needed to fully enjoy all of the experience as cycling to the top of the dunes is not always a relaxing ride before the thrill of the downhill. They do offer an E bike as an alternative if needed.

A brilliant morning enjoying some fun cycling on the dunes and learning about the biome that lies 2km outside of Swakopmund. Our guide was so informative and passionate about the area.

We did the 3.5hr Adventure Desert Tour and it was fantastic: the tour takes you right into the dunes, still we could cycle the tour with only very little walking - even uphill. If you like cycling this is the perfect event in Swakopmund: great guide, good bikes, unique landscape!

Truly one of the highlights of my trip in Namibia.
Henu is a really knowledgeable guide, he showed us a lot about nature and animals. The activity itself is fun and I enjoyed riding in the dunes. I absolutely recommend the fat bike experience (:

I had Gibson as a guide and it was just the two of us.
We started out with a short tour around the city and then went into the river valley . Gibson was able to point out all sorts of wildlife. Next we went out to the dunes and had a really amazing experience. I had done a Quad Bike tour the previous day, but the Fat Bike tour was far superior. Gibson was able to explain many things about the dunes and how they can move with the prevailing winds and how it affects their shapes etc. He also pointed out some of the rare wildlife that can be found in the desert.
After the desert we went back through the river valley and saw more wildlife and birds. Next we went along the ocean front and back to the starting point.

I strongly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Swakopmund.

Incredibile experience and fun for a family! Our guide Henu was very knowledgeable about all the little critters and plants. From a deserted sand dune he showed us all the little beetles, spiders, geckos, legless skinks, tracks and burrows of nocturnal animals and even a Namakwa chameleon!!
