Quad biking and lie-down sand boarding. The morning activity was really good, with great views of the dunes, which are stunning and well worth seeing by quad bike. Our group was really small, just our friends (3) and originally when we booked the trip we were told we couldn't do the 3 hr trip, just the 2hr trip (which excluded the sand boarding). However, when we got there that morning we told them we were interested in the 3 hr trip and they organised it for us, without any hassle. Well worth the money, for a great experience. Good fun and no experience necessary as they take it easy until you are comfortable on the bike. I would recommend to anyone visiting Swakopmund!

We did the Unity Combo (3.5 hours Catamaran cruise and 1 hour quad biking). It was the highlight of our trip to Swakopmund. Emojean was so helpful, professional and efficient, and made everything clear as to what was required of us to meet each excursion. Mossy was our guide on the Catamaran, and was incredibly informative. The drinks, lunch and oysters were stunning. The Quad biking was such fun, and our guides were exceptional. I would highly recommend the Unity Combo to anyone who is visiting Swakopmund.

We had a blast riding quad bikes through the dunes. The trails were pretty extreme and the guides would let you get speed so long as you showed capability of riding quad bikes. We highly recommend!

And of course, do the stand up sand boarding!

We used them for the boat cruise in the Walfisch Bay lagune as well as for the dune boarding excursion: Service in the office was fast, paying with the credit card easy. We were picked up at our hotel at no extra charge and dropped off again. All excursions were well organised and value for money. Well done!

Although we had not booked, the staff were very helpful in assisting 2 of us in the one and a half hour quad bike tour. Initially we were not keen a few days before but some other friends had done the quad biking and recommended it and we decided to give it a go. One of us had not ridden a quad bike before and after ten minutes it was quite easy.

The experience was awesome and the dunes amazing to see and of coarse our guide Matt was awesome as well and professional.

I would say try the quad biking for one and half hours if not longer, but try stick to a smaller group, with experience or sense of adventure so that you do not get held up but people that are not as adventurous and care free.

Had an absolute blast riding the quad bikes around the picturesque dunes. The passengers pay half if someone is not comfortable riding alone.

The riding was safe, and we quickly got a hang of it - the only tricky part was accelerating full throttle while climbing up some bigger dunes. Couple of times we got stuck :) - but our guide quickly fixed it for us.

Riding the dunes is an absolute must!!!

We did a 2 hour afternoon tour. We thought the value was good. The location worked as it’s a very short ride until you are in the sand dunes riding. I am very experienced on atvs, my wife is not, she felt comfortable and safe and enjoyed it. I loved the chance to ride in the dunes and experience the scenery. The guides were friendly and good. The machines are well worn and underpowered for the sand. Also, they keep a tight leash on how and where you ride. I expected this from what I read in advance so it was not surprising. Would highly recommend this as part of an active trip in this area. If you’re experienced with this kind of thing you’ll find a bit tame, but still enjoyable and a unique and fun experience.

My and my son did the dune buggy and the quad bikes. The guide was excellent and took really good care of us. This is something that should not missed - on a. quad bike in the middle of the desert with no idea where the way back home is! The more adventurous should book the 2 hour tour and experience a bit more of an adrenaline rush going down the larger dunes. Thanks desert explorers for a fantastic experience.

Fun on wheels with guide Gerson. We did a 90 min quad bike exercise that was truly fantastic. Gerson quickly worked out the wants and needs for me and my wife and the made sure we both got what we wanted. In my case; a bit more off pist-ish.

First time on quad bikes and it was amazing! It was just what we needed - some practice at the beginning with turning and managing the speed, and then a fast and exciting ride up and down the dunes! Our guide was so sweet, he made a couple stops to take videos for us on easy tracks. We loved it so much that we actually wanted to do it again next day, but it was too late to book. Definitely will do it again some time! Huge recommendation, especially if you don’t want to waste a foggy day in a hotel - this is an awesome experience!
