Quad Bike Tours with Desert Explorers | Swakopmund

Desert Explorers Adventure Centre in Swakopmund offers quad biking tours and a range of activities for the whole family and adrenaline junkies. The Namib Desert and it’s gigantic ever shifting sand dunes offers the ideal venue for riding a quad bike. Get ready for lots of excitement and a rush of adrenaline as you climb some of the biggest dunes around. Desert Explorers offers quad bike touring with different routes and types of tours. We offer guided tours ranging from 1 to 3 hours. We also have the overnight tours from one night to six days. Quad biking is very easy and no experience is necessary. The quad bikes are semi-automatic so no gear changing is necessary -all you have to do is steer and accelerate.

Our professional guides will make sure you experience the Namib Desert at first hand. They will lead you through the Swakopmund River mouth into the dune belt. Our tours include the Amphitheatre, Roller Coasters, Big Billy and Devil’s Dip dunes. Quad biking is very safe – you are guided by an experienced and knowledgeable guide. You are also provided with safety equipment.

Desert Explorers Adventure Centre is an eco-friendly company and will insist that participants ride in existing tracks to protect our dunes. Throughout the ride you will enjoy spectacular views of the Namib Desert and the dunes. Drinks and snacks are available from our kiosk on site. Tours include water, guides, safety gear and local transfers from your accommodation in Swakopmund and lots of fun. Quad biking is one of the most popular activities in Swakopmund so book ahead to avoid disappointment.

Desert Explorers also offer activities for kids – camel riding is a popular activity for children although the adults enjoy it just as much.
