Swakopmund is the place for adventure sports in Namibia. We settled for Quad biking in the Namib desert. It was a fun way of getting out into the desert. We did a one hour tour. Alex was really excited to be able to drive his own quad bike up and down the golden dunes. It gave a different feel than just seeing the dunes from a distance.
Shades of dark can be seen all over. This is iron filings from the eroded ship wrecks here on the Skeleton Coast. Over time the sand has filed away steel from the ships that are buried under the sand, then it spreads with the sea, the sand, and the wind.
Our guide used a magnet to collect a small amount that he then used to write in the sand.
That was our cool adventure for the day.
