Namib Desert is a vast cold coastal desert in Southern Africa.It has some of the biggest sand dunes in the world! It could be the oldest desert in the world and contains some of the world’s driest regions.
Visiting Namibia was a delight. it was amazing. My target was to visit Windhoek, Walvis Bay and Swakopmund. I first imagined myself having fun at the sand dunes before it actually just BANG!!! Happened. With no appointment whatsoever, I got to a place called Desert Explorers in Swakopmund.This place has lots of tours one could enjoy.
I was up for going quad biking on these big sand dunes! The place is found near Nathaniel Maxuilili road and I didn’t have to spend on transport because it was quite close to where I lodged.
The company other than doing quad bike tours also has camel rides, dolphin cruises, sky diving, sand boarding, kayaking, paragliding, go-karting etc. This place usually operates from 8am to 6pm every day of the week.
I wanted to boost my adrenaline levels and the quad bikes were just that perfect thing I needed. Their quad biking tours always have to be with at least four bikers and this is where solo travelling either gets interesting because you get to meet people or this is where it sucks because you kind of want your space….it depends.
I was the only female in that tour.The tour guide was of course lively and interesting and about the bucks, it’s about 50 dollars for a 2 hours biking session. All protective gear was given and the wonderful thing is that we have the image of deserts always being unbearably hot, but this tour is close to the coast and was cool or maybe it was because of the time of the year I had travelled.
Am not sure what you would like to do for that adrenaline boost when you are in this part of Africa but do pay this place a visit, it will be worth the while.
