Our man on the ground was Alfons, once again having local knowledge is KEY to having a good time! Our first afternoon was mind blowing! We followed Alfons into the surrounding dunes of Swakopmund and rode some lines as the sun set behind us.
The next morning we went off to see the highest dune in the world, Dune 7. After asking around we realised that nobody had ever walked up and ridden a bike down! Challenge accepted. The footage doesn't do the scale and steepness of the Dune justice, it really is insanely steep.
We found ourselves on a moon like surface for the second part of our adventure, The Lunar Landscape. The choice of lines was overwhelming! For as far as you eyes could see, ridge after ridge, gully after gully, endless lines to ride! We had left the fat bikes behind by this stage and were back onto the enduro bikes.
Namibia has a lot to offer! It truly is an adventurers play ground!
Remember to do some planning beforehand, connect with the right people and hopefully you can have as an amazing adventure as we did.
