We signed up for a ‘low-tide beach cruise’ in the morning and ‘the scenic desert tour’ in the afternoon. Our guide was Rich. Not only we did fatbiking, we also learned a lot about the ocean and desert. We really had a blast. Recommended!!!

Our fatbike tour on the dunes was a great experience. We enjoyed the ride and specially the drops. My MTB friends are jealous about the nice photos. Mark explained many things about Swakopmund and the desert. Really satisfied!!

Dear Marno, Thank you for your review. I am sad to hear that your experience was not what you expected. In your review you mentioned that you signed up for the Old City AND Desert Tour. As these are two different tours, it seems that...More

Living in Namibia you don't really do the "touristy things" so we were excited when we got gift vouchers for this activity, which we enjoyed over a weekend at the coast. This is an activity enjoyable for both travelers and locals. You definitely need to...More
