We did the night walk with Sean who was very knowledgable about the area and created a nice atmosphere. It was very pleasant to be ambling along in search for nocturnal critters, never sure of what we would come across.

We signed up for the Little Five desert tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the desert!Overall good experience. Although the company does provide cool drinks and snacks, it can get very hot so remember sunscreen, hats, appropriate shoes and extra water.
