Quad biking in sand dunes was extremely fun, we came to cape town for our honeymoon. There are two drivers around us on their own quads ensuring we are having a great time and safe! Great customer service. I would only recommend that your company provides clearer instructions as to where the sand dunes are, an actual address rather than... More

We had a fantastic day out in the CPT sunshine recently with Downhill Adventures. Our guide, Sylvester picked us up at the airport and we had fun quadbiking on the Atlantis dunes, followed by a great lunch at Meerendal and a wine and gin tasting. Sylvester was flexible and adapted to our pace and preferences. Well done team Downhill Adventures!

A short drive to the base of the mountain and then a comprehensive safety briefing followed. Before Mike led us up the steep initial climb, pausing to allow us to catch... More
