More about Sand Dunes Trail

This action-packed trail is the perfect option for riders who really want to test the capabilities of the bicycles and takes 2-3 hours to complete.

We start from Grootbos Nature Reserve and gradually make our way down the mountain to the sand dunes along a horse trail that winds through the fynbos. Once we reach the dunes there is a fantastic downhill section that allows us to pick up speed before reaching the first vertical dune face. After a thorough briefing session the group then takes turns to ride down the dune.

Once you've achieved this daring feat we take the 4x4 route towards the beach to tackle the biggest dune of them all! After all this excitement, we make our way back to 4x4 trail that takes us to De Kelders, where we enjoy refreshments.

The price of the tour includes an experienced guide, transport to the dunes, fatbike rental, pick-up and drop-off in Gansbaai/Hermanus (if required), protective gear, light refreshments, nature reserve entry fees, as well as a YouTube video of your group in action!

Opinions On Sand Dunes Trail

What the locals say about Sand Dunes Trail.


The 4 hours on the fatbike was fabulous! Friendly staff, willing to help, but also pushing you to try something new and out of your comfort zone. It was a wonderful experience, enjoying nature in such a way. After mounting our cameras, we were off on a quick single track, over the first dune, and after that it was pure bliss. The best was trying out jumps, and going down steep dunes. We will do it again, and or sure we ended the tour with a very cold local beer in a nearby restaurant! PS: take the cameras with!! Enjoy!

Cornel de Villiers

Riding on the dunes was amazing! Really enjoyed the fact that we were encouraged to try and do tricks on the dunes but also never forced to do anything you didn't feel comfortable with. Big thumbs up !!


Great tour through the Dunes of Gansbaai. We really enjoyed it and Dave was a great guide, how know the area as his pocket...

Peter Staudacher

The sand dunes ride was a lot of fun and very well organised. We had 3 hours full of action, fun and pleasure.
