Quad Biking in the Sand Dunes in Namibia

Hop on an ATV (All-terrain Vehicle) to combine the natural beauty of Namibia with adrenaline. Cruise on the expansive dune field up and down the tall dunes. It’s one of the most fun things to do in Namibia. If you ask us it’s one of the best ways to explore the dunes, we loved every minute of our ATV tour.

Ride around the dramatic red sand dunes of the Namib Desert during a fantastic quad bike experience. In Walvis Bay, before setting out on the bikes, listen to a safety briefing and then follow a guide on an exhilarating tour around the canyons, valleys, and dunes of the enchanting desert plains. Look out for flora and fauna, ancient fossils, and members of the Topnaar tribe, a semi-nomadic community that calls the desert home.

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 we weave our way through the smaller ones towards the “Amphitheater”.

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

After riding down “Devils Dip” we ride the berms, spirals, and slopes as we cruise towards the “Table Top” a great dune that offers a spectacular view of the sea.

Where to do Quad biking in Sand dunes in Namibia


An hour quad-bike ride takes you out along the dune-belt between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.  You will head out to the prime sand-boarding dune. Spend an hour lie-down sand-boarding and return back to Desert Explorers HQ after. This is the ideal tour for the adrenaline junkie.
