Five Star Experience with a Top-notch Company
We are so glad we booked a quad tour with Maluti Mountain. Everything about the experience was top-notch starting with the booking. We decided the night before we were interested in going and sent Shane an email. He responded promptly and gave us some options. The next morning we got a late start and knew we wouldn't be ready for the scheduled tour. I gave Shane a call and he was able to accommodate our schedule. It was a rainy day and the road to the meeting point is not in the best condition. Shane called us while we were on the road to make sure we had a 4 wheel drive vehicle and ensured us that they would come and pull us out if we got stuck. We didn't, but it was good to know we would have been helped. Sid did our tour and did an excellent job getting us kitted out in raingear (that they provide) and showing us the ropes. The tour, itself, is amazing, over the river and through the woods, so to speak. I couldn't believe the terrain the quad bikes are able to cover and we got a kick out of driving them. The scenery is stunning and we enjoyed the stop at the cave to see the rock art. When we got back to our car, Sid led us down a different road so that we could avoid the worst of the mud on the main road. He and Shane really went above and beyond the call of duty and we so appreciated it. The tour was a hit with our nine year old as well - he bragged about it to his class the following Monday! Thanks Shane and Sid for a five-star experience.
Incredible Quad Biking Experience - A ladies perspective
The absolute best quad biking experience in Clarens by far! Shane is incredibly skilled and ready to support old and young along the trail. The bikes are easy to ride being automatic and I felt incredibly safe at all times.
The cave tour was a bonus, and the views at the top of the hills are breathtaking.
Tips for ladies (I was the only one on our tour)
1) Wear a sports bra!
2) You cannot carry anything on the bike, so if you are going to carry goodies (camera/cellphone/jacket) make sure it is in a satchel strapped securely to you. Stuff jiggles and you can easily lose it.
3) Wear sunscreen!
4) Wear old clothes - It is a dusty ride and best you not ruin a decent outfit - It is not a fashion show ladies.
5) Take a peak/hat - When you get to the cave to hike you remove your helmet and hairnet. Helmet hair is not a good look for ladies, so you need to pop on a hat to cover your sweaty locks.
6) It is highly likely that you will need to go to the bathroom during the ride (it is a long ride and a lot of jiggling), so take some tissues with you. You will be having a wee in the bush. If you have a Shewee (Google if you don't know what this is) even better and take it with you. I forgot mine at home....
I highly recommend this experience with Shane and his team and will definitely go again!

What an amazing experience. Shane took us on a tour on the quads through their beautiful farm outside Clarens. Breathtaking views and rich with history, highly recommended!
All- round best experience
I loved everything about our experience last Saturday. Shane( a very top guy, IMO) is very knowledgeable about the mountains and ensures everybody's safety every step of the way. The views are unmatched and I definitely will be going back.
An amazing adventure
What an adventure. A definite must add to your bucket list. The ride and experience was everything and beyond. Shane was the tour guide and he was absolutely friendly and welcoming. Thank you. Going to refer everyone I know.
An experience and a half. It really exceeded my expectations. We toured around the mountains and saw beautiful hidden sites that nature has to provide. Thanks for your patience and good service Shane
Family adventure through the Maluti mountains
When we booked our quad bike experience through the Maluti mountains we did not know the adventure that we had waiting for us.
The first part was meeting our host Shane which give us a 4 x 4 experience and then we meet our amazing host Shane. What a guy! Shane was so hospitable and accommodating. We were a group of 10, ages ranging from 5 to 63 years old. He was clear on instructions on using the quads.
Once we started our quad ride, wow the scenery through the mountains was outstanding. South Africa is beautiful beyond words to describe. We went all the way up the mountains, my five old was riding with me and she loved every minute. We have quad biked before through Drakensberg and game farms in Limpopo but this was an incredible experience we will never forget. We parked the bikes halfway and hiked to the caves which is a national monument and saw San drawings, which was so special. Shane told us about the history of the Boere war in the land we stood on. In the caves we had a juice break and Shake treated us to organic juices from the local brewery. And finally our descent through the mountains began. This is a must for any size family and one you will remember forever.
And Shane is a great photographer.
A great memory
If you want to experience the Maluti Mountains in a different way, then you should contact Shane Brits from Maluti Adventures.
We experience this magical moment & we would like to thank Shane for showing us a different side to Clarens.
It is a definite MUST for all.

Absolutely fantastic experience. Breathtaking views, fantastic quads and an all round flawless environment. Shane is a real gent and couldn’t be a better guide, don’t hesitate, book now. You won’t regret this adventure!
Great outing for the whole Family.
An amazing outing, took my wife and kids on the ride, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it, I would highly recommend this to anybody looking for a fun outing, thanks Shane for the great adventure.
Highly recommended ?
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Shane was an excellent guide and teacher (for myself that had little experience riding a quad). The trail was about 3 hours and with it leading up into the mountains, there were plenty of obstacles to keep the adrenaline going whilst admiring the beautiful views surrounding you.
Epic adventure! Do not miss out on this one if you are in Clarens or surrounding area.
Most fun we had had as a family in a long time! The 4x4 route, the views and most of all the guide/owner Shane! He goes the xtra mile. Epic adventure
Gorgeous way to explore the mountains!
Had an awesome day on the mountain! The quads were a lot of fun, Shane was a brilliant guide and teacher. Great mix of adrenaline and moments to enjoy the scenery.
Breathtaking Mountain Views
Best quad biking experience ever. Shane only has the best 4x4 quads with which he takes you up mountains and down valleys. Awesome 3 hours in the Maluti mountains that is a Clarens must do activity.
Top notch experience
Absolutely fabulous experience. Shane was such an awesome guide and friendly guy to spend an after With. The views were breathtaking and the equipment was top notch. Really worth the trip. Take the tour and you will remember it for your lifetime.
