Kick things off with a safety and test driving session with your guide in Walvis Bay. Then head out on this Swakopmund quad bike tour through the Namib Desert on your 4WD off road vehicle. 

Cruise through desert canyons and barren plains, then test the limits of speed over pristine sand dunes that lay just beyond the Swakopmund city limits. Take in 360-degree views of this nation’s stark beauty on this off-road tour.

Follow your guide, who will point out ancient fossils and well-preserved animal footprints while you learn about the local vegetation and plants that are able to thrive despite unforgiving desert conditions. Catch a glimpse of scorpions, snakes and lizards that scurry throughout the landscape and learn about the Topnaar tribe—a seminomadic people that once made their home at the mouth of the Kuiseb River Valley.

Between these brief stops and informative talks, test the limits of your ATV and open throttle to race across the open valleys of the vast desert. Your guide will provide expert tips to insure you get the most fun and performance from your quad bike on this quad bike tour of the Namib Desert.

    What an experience. Lovely to do with teens & young adults. with younger kids, 1 hour of quad biking is enough. We went with the full monty of 3 hours. At some point 2 jackals were running next to us on the dunes. It was amazing.

    If you want to get lost in the desert, this is the tour to take. We enjoyed ourselves. Our tour guide Jan was patient and informative. It would be recommended that their telephone number is provided as we arrived at the departure point and there was nobody to meet us and no number was provided.
