The whole day was planned out extremely well and the set up of the camp was fantastic! Food was very good and the supply of drinks was constant which was needed in the extreme heat. The driver we had who was called Nias, was fantastic! He was friendly, funny and made the whole experience so much better he offered to take our phones multiple times to capture photographs of the trip and nothing was too much trouble for him

I can’t recommend this activity enough. From the moment Erixson our guide picked us up it was a seamless operation. Erixson was fantastic, very polite and professional - he was a real joy. Then onto our Dune Buggy experience which for myself and my 12 year old son Thomas was just awesome from start to finish. Exactly what we had hoped for. Thank you to everyone involved.

We were picked up by our guide shihab who was fantastic the whole day. He took us to the camp where the buggies were it was a bit of a drive but well worth it. The buggies were amazing it was well organised and we’d definitely do it again. We were taken to a second camp for the remaining activities and the BBQ the whole experience was amazing and it was a massive part because of our guide (Shihab) who was there at every point and made sure we made the most of the day. Highly recommend
