Did the 2 hour quad biking tour with a group of friends. We had so much fun going over the dunes. The bikes were well kept, I went with the manual gears as I have previously used quad bikes. Automatics were available and easy to ride.

If you have never done this you have to do it. It is easy to handled you are with a guide. to drive thru the dunes is something you will never forget, even better then to ride on a Kamel, because you can direct your one speed. On lovely sunny day, just go for it.

We were a massive group of 60 people. We were well received and the introduction was short and to the point. Then a delay before getting going due to what seemed like a disagreement between the guides and the head of our tour. It seemed that even the Desert Explorers team did not agree with each other. The views are... More

Our group of 4 families and children did the Quadbike and sandboarding combo of 3hrs. One of the highlights of our trip to Namibia. Both activities provides for an adrenaline rush in a safe environment

What a treat! We booked a 3hr tour, but these guys are so amazing, that it turned into a 4.5hr trip! We can't thank you enough for all the patience and kindness you had with our girls! You made it extra special for them. We will come visit you again!

We booked at closing time the day before for an 8:30 Explorer trip for 2 hours. Our 2 Guides showed us the dancing lady spider, albino gecko and sidewinder snake which they had tracked. The Quadbiking was thrilling and such an experience to be in the dunes! You travel with helmets and in single file after a short safety briefing.... More

I booked a tour with desert explorers on my second day at Swakopmund. Chris a very experienced guide was super attentive and understood very well what he was doing, he and his colleagues knew very well, every corner of the desert. We even found small animals along the way. A very nice experience indeed.
