Quad Biking

Most popular activity and a must do in Swakopmund are Quad bike Tours.

Experience the sheer thrill of riding a quad bike through Namibia’s boundless expanse of shifting sand dunes.

After the engines are revved up and ready to roll, an experienced guide will lead you through the Swakopmund River mouth into the dune belt. Feel the freedom of riding through one of nature’s great wildernesses. As the towering dunes approach you weave your way through the smaller ones towards the “Amphitheater”.

With “Power-up” you blast your way to the top of the first big dune via the “Roller Coasters” to the top of “Big Billy”. You stop for a drink and you get the opportunity to capture the stark and savage beauty of the Namib Desert.

Tommy introduces you to some of the fascinating, hidden life in this apparently barren landscape that is part of the Namib Desert. Here you can find creatures endemic to the Namib: the sidewinder (Peringuey’s Adder), the Palmato Gecko with its transparent skin and beautiful colours – we dig into the dune side to find this nocturnal desert-dweller. We track the large Namaqua Chameleon, and watch it enjoy brunch. Then it’s a dash to catch the swift sand-diving lizard.

We find out how the area’s plants and small animals survive the harsh climate, and how they obtain water for life. You will also track a FitzSimon’s Burrowing Skink across the dune face, in hopes of catching this legless lizard. Along the way, Tommy will explain the variety of dune colours.
