The Ride

The Ride


The Quad Explore adventure begins on the Grootbos road right next to Platbos.

A qualified guide will assess you and kit you up with all the necessary protective gear before you hit the trail, ensuring that safety comes first. The quad bikes are semi-automatic which means that no complicated gear changing is required, making and this adventure is perfect for novices as well as experienced riders.  Riders not wanting to take control of a quad themselves or those who are under the age of 14 years are welcome to ride as backseat passengers.

What to bring:

  • Closed shoes
  • A warm jacket
  • Sunscreen
  • Eyewear
  • Refreshments (no alcohol is allowed)

Cost (a minimum of two bikes per adventure)

Full 2-hour Trail Ride:

  • R550 per person per quad bike
  • R150 for each passenger

This is a perfect outing for the whole family or for groups of friends just wanting a healthy dose of clean fun (unless you hit a mud puddle of course). Group discounts are available on request.



“Before we left the USA for our African adventure, we asked our tour company to try to find us an ATV (All Terrain Vehicles) company for a ride on the coast or in a vineyard...who knew that in Africa (and probably elsewhere!) what we call ATVs are called Quad Bikes!?! We happened upon the Quad Explore Nature Trails brochure at the Marine Hotel and LOVED every minute of our experience! There were three of us - and we are no spring chickens...and it was a blast!!! We rode for hours to the top of a mountain (a gentle mountain!) and saw spectacular views. It's not for the faint of heart but if we could do it - so could you! Extra thanks to our guide - he was respectful, knowledgeable and FUN! I would highly recommend this activity!” - The Sullys, Elmhurst, Illinois, USA
“Bonding time with the family, what a great way to spend time with your family, enjoyed every moment of it.”Bella, Hermanus, South Africa
“Our first attempt at quad biking and we are hooked. Corne was the perfect guide and took us on a trail through the fynbos to the top of a mountain with the most amazing views across Franskraal and the coast stretching into the distance. I initially found the steeper sections of the trail a bit nerve-racking, but my 14-year old daughter loved every minute of it and by the end of the trip I also started feeling like a seasoned rider. Corne took a lot of photos during the outing and transferred them to my camera card at the end of the visit, so I didn't even have to take my own camera. We will be back to bring the rest of the family on this trail.” - Sylvia, Cape Town, South Africa
