A 5 minute ride and you are amongst the sand dunes and away from any signs of civilisation. Great fun, as challenging as you like and a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours and learn about the desert from a couple of great guys. Many fantastic photo and video opportunities

hi Harald, Thank you very much for your review. Glad you had such a good time and enjoyed the mix between 'exercise' and 'education'. We always like to give our guests a 'takeaway' and leave you with a greater appreciation for the Namib desert :). See you again next time. Kind Regards, Mark

Thanks Mark for making today perfect. You were so quick to reply to my emails and answer all my questions leading up to today. You were so helpful with tips as to how to negotiate the seemingly impossible dune climbs and descents. It was fun and exilararating with the most

Fun couple of hours well led by Ingo-informative and very patient with a couple of old timers! Would definitely do it again-perhaps with less lunch inside us😀
