Our dedicated and experienced drivers and technicians are always ready to instruct our clients and deal with any technical problems on spot.
The key to safe riding is controlling the bike. Tipping the quad over is an initial fear of many first-time riders, but that only happens if the person loses focus. Another dangerous thing is standing up while driving as you can be hit by a branch.
Dust in the dry months of the year means that protective goggles or close-fitting sunglasses make a safer riding. People with asthma are advised to wear a proper dust-mask.
Taking those safety measures on board, the rides are great fun.
The main reasons for accidents
- Driver lacks experience
We go at a medium tempo but you still need to be very mindful if you’re a novice.
- Distance between the vehicles is too short of too long
The safe distance is 20-25m; if someone stays behind and then speeds up to catch up the rest of the group, sometimes they lose the control of the bike; if the distance is too short, they can hit the driver in front of them in case of sudden stops.
- Playing, riding recklessly
We promote safe driving, and remind of it during our frequent stops in case someone forgets quickly.
