Sandboarding is growing in popularity around the world, and with several countries full of sand dunes, the African continent is one of the top places to go.
The first place that comes to mind for sandboarding in Africa for most people is probably somewhere in the Sahara — and there is hardly a better place to go than the Erg Chebbi dunes in Morocco.
Tourists visiting Merzouga will find this an easy outdoor option.
One of the best companies to go with is Morocco Desert Excursions, who can also book you with other activities like quad biking if sandboarding isn’t your thing.
To sandboard some of the largest dunes in the world, head straight to Namibia’s Sossusvlei and pick any number of dunes.
A great company to book with is Namibia Travel Plan. They also provide other excursions in the area to make the trip worthwhile.
Of course, you could always just head to the area yourself and bring your own equipment, but it’s often more peace of mind just to go with a company if you aren’t an expert.
If you’re down in South Africa, one of the more popular places to go is Atlantis, a getaway under a 50km drive from Cape Town.
Every weekend, locals and tourists flock to Atlantis to go get their adrenaline going and for a change of scenery.
To go, book with Sidewinder Adventures that can take you to this seaside town to enjoy the dunes.
If they happen to be full, another good place to book around Cape Town is through Downhill Adventures.
For even more places to go in South Africa, consider Silver Sands in Betty’s Bay, Dragon Dune in Vleesbaai, or Lagoon Dunes in Langebaan.
