“Totally recommend it!”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Very interesting ~4hour long (N$700) educational quad bike tour around the desert. Fannie, the tour guide, knows his stuff on the desert, the history and the plant and animal life. Very informative, highly knowledgable AND interesting guide, who's attentive to the needs and different capabilities of his customers. I found the quad biking very challenging but it was worth every nervous quiver. He also taught us several desert manoeuvers that would sooth the soul of any adrenalin junkie.

“What a treat!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

This was one of the highlights during our 4 day stay in the Walvis area. It was well organised, bikes in great condition, and Fanie has intricate knowledge about the history and area that I don't think is easy to find elsewhere. We have done other quad bike tours in the past as well, but they cannot even compare to this!! You have so much fun and freedom in the vast landscape, whilst learning such interesting things along the way. It is the perfect balance between educational and adventurous. Fanie takes safety very serious and will give you all the attention required to ensure you are comfortable. I cannot recommend this highly enough. Just be careful of other operators that claim to offer similar tours, they are not in the same league.

“Must-do in Walvis Bay”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

The quad bike tour organized by Fani Du Preez was beyond our expectation. Fani is not just a typical tour leader but an authority in the history of the Namib desert. His passion and knowledge about the region echoed throughout the excursion. The tour is full of amazing features such as ostrich eggshells used as water containers centuries ago and 2000-year old well preserved footprints in the fossilized mud. My wife and I had a wonderful time. Definitely a unique experience.

“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

My husband and I had a fab time. We had no idea what to expect. Fanie enthusiastically guided us to different locations in the desert and told us so many interesting things about the desert and its history. While learning amazing things my husband totally enjoyed on the thrill of the quad bikes and I learned to love going down those steep dunes.
We both loved it and would recommend the tour any time.

“The best reason to come to Namibia”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We were recommended to Fanie (the owner/operator of Kuiseb Delta Adventures) on our first visit to Namibia last year. We built our whole trip this year around the day we would spend with him.
The experience is wonderful.
The quad bikes are fun, easy and exhilarating - coming down the face of a monster sand dune is great! But the experience is much much more than just an adrenaline rush. Fanie is an expert in all the desert has to offer - and there is a lot to offer: the history; the flora and fauna; and a deep understanding of his constantly shifting environment.
The whole trip lasted six hours - cold and bracing to begin with, baking hot and sweaty by the time it ended as the sun was fierce.
I can't recommend this tour highly enough. Fanie is passionate about his desert ... the trouble is, there is no one to take on the task after him.
Go soon!
