Review of: Eco Dune Tour
We did the tour recently with our guide Buzz. That was a great experience in the sand dunes!!! We got lots of information from Buzz and he found all those little creatures sometimes deep in the sand: chameleon, lezard, gecko, snakes and scorpion. Learned a lot of interesting things about these little animals. Thank you, Buzz, and we highly recommend the tour.

This was a fantastic 21 days spent when we joined up with a group of 4 others and our guide, who was exceptional in our experiences of nature-oriented travel. Batis Birding is a family run operation which ensures that every aspect of the time spent is well supported, used wisely and professionally and with thoughtfulness for the differing requirements and expectations of their clients so that everyone achieved their goals of what they hoped to see, hear and photograph and always in constant safety. The transport, accomodation and meals were consistently of high quality and ensured a convivial time at the end of each day. H&J Brooke

....but find it difficult to spot them this is the tour for you. Baz took us out for a morning to see the little desert creatures and was quick to show us what we had been missing. We were thrilled to see a chameleon, lizards and even a sidewinder snake all in their natural stunning desert scenery.

Review of: Eco Dune Tour
We spent four hours in the desert being shown how all the wild life coexist. Our guide (Collin) was so good that he could spot the smallest hole in the sand, dig down a little and come up with a gecko. Who knew there was so much wild life in the desert. Well worth the money. Can not recommend this tour enough, it should be a must do for those who don't want to 4X4 over dunes.

Review of: Eco Dune Tour
We can not recommend this more highly. Amazing knowledgeable guide took us on the Desert Tour. Explored the hidden gems of the desert. Very different experience. Amazing what Guide could find in seemingly barren desert. Lots of surprises. Heard their birding safaris are excellent.
