A highly recommended tour in the desert. So much information and detail provided by the guides. Bawden is a font of information! I was looking forward to this tour for a long time and wasn't disappointed.

Most interesting to see which animals live in this dry desert and how they are able to survive! Informative for everybody including kids, the knowledgeable guides are able to convey the information in a way suitable for everybody. They will fetch you at your accomodation and return you. Most recommendable!

We booked a tour to see the small five with Charly's Desert Tours. Our guide, Borden, is very knowledgeable and besides showing us 4 of the small 5 gave us a wealth of very interesting information. I can recommend this tour for any nature / natural history lover. Beautiful desert scenery and of course the small five (spider, gecko, lizard, snake and chameleon) are amazing to look at in their natural environment.

We booked through Charly's for a 3 hour combo tour of quad biking and sand boarding and were taken to Desert Explorers who seem to be the partner group and who own the quads. There was a mix up of days but when I rang it was quickly rectified.
The quads were new and powerful and our guide was exceptional with our family of four. We have all done this activity before but we all agreed this was our best time ever. The dunes are high and the bikes are powerful enough to climb them and get a real thrill. When we wanted to go faster we did and weren't limited to a slow "follow my leader" trip, the guide accommodated what we wanted (we had 2 teenagers). The sand boarding was fun but just used a piece of hardboard - not proper skiboards - but it went fast enough down steep dunes. We only did it once as it was so hard to walk up again but the kids did it a couple of times. When we were bored we just did more quad biking! Loved every minute!
