The Green Kalahari is located in the Northern Cape, bordering Namibia and Botswana. It is characterized by red dunes, mountain desert and grasslands. Green Kalahari boasts best of both worlds, unspoilt semi-desert with green vineyards at the fertile valley of Orange River and its shimmering waters, which thunder into a deep granite to form the mighty Augrabies Falls.

Quad Biking in Cardrona Adventure Park, Queenstown, Otago New Zealand
The town is surrounded by Lake Wakatipu and the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Ben Lomond. Queenstown and the surrounding area was the setting for the legendary films Lord of the Rings and X-Men Origins. Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate is considered to be oceanic, with warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 30°C/86°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.
Quad Biking lovers should visit Cardrona Adventure Park, situated opposite to Cardrona Ski Resort (58 km/36 mi from Queenstown; 34 km/21 mi from Wanaka). The Park offers a great variety of quad biking adventures addressed to riders of all levels.
Feel great amounts of adrenaline pumping inside your body while driving on demanding terrain (mud, snow, river, hills) or choose a more scenic and relaxing ride. 50cc, 80cc and 90cc quad bikes also available for kids. Tip: Don’t forget to try a monster truck ride (the only place in the world offering trucks for public ride).
