we ended up on this tour by default as we wanted a ATV for half a day but none available. as it was 1345 they had the 2 hr buggy tour going out at 1400 so we jumped on that.

and we was so glad we did! it was amazing fun and you can't do anything like it in the UK or Canaries. the buggies are safe and easy to drive, they put them in 4x4 drive when you get to the dunes and you need it!

they take you on a purpose built track on the way to kite beach. the buggies are powerful and hit some speed. I had 77kph on the rough and hit 80kph on the flat :-)

you stop off at the zip line which gives a good view then drive up to the main road. you stop here to switch drivers if you want. we didn't swap but if you do the second half of the trip is a lot less challenging and for that read boring if you like the rough and tumble! lol.

all in all this was one of the best trips over done in 20 years and highly recommended. the guides are great and make sure everyone is strapped in and safe, it can be done by all ages and driver ability.

We booked this trip through our rep at our hotel but the trip itself was organised through No limits.

After being picked ul at the hotel we were taken to the base, you will need your driving licence for each person that wants to drive you are then provided with a boiler suit, helmet, goggles and a bottle of water. You can purchase a face covering but we took our own bandana, this is to protect you from all the dust not for Covid!
You are then as a couple given a buggy which is yours for the whole trip. There is a backpack on the buggy for you to put any of your belongings.

You then set off in convoy out onto the salt plains where there is a little course they take you round with lots of mini hills and dunes to have fun.

They take you up towards where the zip line is where you stop and get to take in the view and take some pictures. A bit further on they stop and give you a chance to swap drivers before heading off to the beach,as ours was the kate afternoon trip we had a chance to watch the sunset before heading back to base.

There are a couple of chaps on quad bikes who take pictures as you go around and you can purchase these at the end for 25€, well worth it and the are sent digitally by email or WhatsApp.

This trip is fantastic fun and the staff make sure everyone is safe and enjoys themselves.

Well worth the trip.

We had A LOT of fun on the buggy tour!! Took in some beautiful scenery, went through the desert, the beach, up and down some hills, and saw a beautiful sunset. The guides and staff were excellent with safety, fun, and NO STRESS their top priorities. You're given protective clothing, shown how to operate the buggies, seat belts are checked and rechecked, rules are communicated and advice is shared around how to maximize fun along with the dos and don'ts!

I highly recommend this activity to add some fun to a very chilled holiday. My partner and I shared the driving since there's a part that's high in adrenalin [there's a race track] and there's a less challenging portion where less confident drivers can take the wheel and have fun.

Huge shout out to our guides Tchips & Zé. Those two fellas helped to make it fun, gave us some good local info and encouraged us to push the buggies. This is an absolute must for anyone visiting Cape Verde...money well spent.

I had an amazing experience! I don't think there is a more fun way to tour the island than on an SSV Buggy. The guide, Guia "Tchips" Silviano, took us on a great route, and made sure we had plenty of time to take pictures. It took a few minutes to get adjusted to driving the buggy, since it was my first time, but I caught on quickly.

The route took you through the city, the beach, high up views that let you see the ocean, and so much more. It was like you visited several different countries since the terrain was so unique in each area of the island.

I would highly recommend taking the tour - especially since we had a great guide, and the island is absolutely stunning.

We had such an amazing experience on the Dune buggies whilst we were staying in Santa Maria. We were picked up from our hotel after booking it through our TUI rep and taken to the centre to get all of the equipment needed. There’s an option to buy a bandana for €3 if you haven’t got your own. You travel in convoy through the sand dunes and desert with a few stops along the way, including a beautiful beach as the last stop. We switched drivers half way through however the first half is the best in my opinion. It was a fantastic experience overall and one of the highlights of our holiday for sure. Would definitely recommend.

Myself and my partner had a great time, we felt safe and well advised the whole trip with it still being a great experience!

The instructors Fredy, Valdir and Jaze were great, being informative and very friendly.

We recommended this activity to a friend who is visiting next week already and would recommend it to anyone else considering it.

Thank you (cheers) for an amazing experience!

Great service. Great fun on the Buggy. Although they forbid racing and overtaking, the whole trip is kept at a good pace - the adrenaline is slightly elevated :) All men are delighted, children are also delighted, and women - depending on their preferences, to ride on the bumps relatively quickly :) On the way, great views, I definitely recommend it!

Have done lots of excursions on our 1 week holiday here in sal. We did the 2 hour buggy tour and it was such a good experience! I highly recommend this excursion if you like a bit of thrill and excitement and at the same time see some amazing views. Tour guides chip and buddy I think their names were ? They were great and very friendly . The tour itself was a good duration and the speed we drove at was fast at times which made it so much fun.

We have a blast ! Great experience, I drove the first part and my husband the second. The first part was definitely better, and more adventurous, with up/down hills giving you a lot of adrenaline. The staff was amazing, they were really looking after you. A ninja photographer was following us as well, taking amazing pictures. We also managed to saved little turtles on the way, and let them go back to the ocean. Unforgettable moments...
