Amazing! The sand buggy whizzes you over the dunes at a pace that most countries would deem unsafe! However, we had a wonderful time riding over the dunes! Never seen so much sand outside the Sahara! There were stops for various activies and refreshments, also plenty of photo stops. Altogether a MUST for anyone going to Natal - I highly... More

The buggy ride was good, with some pieces os emotion while clibing the Dunes. The place is very hot with nothing to do, just take pictures and in 10 minutes you are good to go. I was expecting more from it.

If you go to Natal and skip Dunes of Genipabu, your trip won't be complete. Amazing place, really beautiful, buggy ride is really nice through those dunes. Ask the driver to have more fun and he will drive faster. It's safe and much better. That was the best place that I visited in Natal.

A holiday experience in Natal that cannot be missed... Have a buggy ride after some hustling with the driver... They have to stay within legal limits so no rip off unless you go for initial price.

The views towards the sea and the city is great, unfortunately the rental of buggys and the noise coming with them do not allow to stay there forever

Fantastic!!! Must see! One can choose a trip with or without "adventure". Beautiful place. Nothing is for free. You pay for the buggy with authorized driver and pay for the entrance at park. This is national park.

Exciting. You have to experience the adventure of crossing the Dunes in a Buggy. You feel part of the nature and sometimes like in a middle of a desert. Simply exciting

We went through Vicky at Fly Brazil....Phone +55 84 8161 7188 (e-mail hostess@outlook.com) and we had an incredible day. They were actually early to our house, they pick you up and take you out to the dunes. Simply riding around in the buggies through the streets was even fun, and the buggies made it that much better. They let you... More

When we were in Natal we were booked to do the buggy tour but it rained the whole day and so we were unable to go. A few people from our hotel said how much fun it was so I am reiterating that here. I just wanted to make note that we booked our tour via Marazul before we went... More
