Quad Bikes are actually referred to as all-terrain vehicles (ATV) and are meant for just that; all-terrain.
Interestingly Quad Bikes are street-legal vehicles in some countries, but they are generally not street-legal within most territories. Largely they were used in agriculture because of their all-terrain nature, speed, and light footprint. However, almost anybody you ask today will tell you they were meant specifically for thrill and entertainment in ranches, beaches, and sandy deserts.
Whether in deserts, muddy trackless ranches or even intentionally designed trails, Quad Biking provides nothing but total exhilaration, which makes it one of the most popular adventure activities of this generation.
In Kenya, quad biking is popular in recreational facilities and weekend getaway destinations that want to give their customers an experience rare to this part of the world. Most of these establishments have wide ranches to spare and some can only afford a limited course that can allow users to make repeat round trips.
For obvious reasons, it’s unexpected to enjoy a typically off-road vehicle in a city. Surprisingly Nairobi and its environs have made it possible for you not to miss our I this thrill. I will here below list my top location selection where you can have a taste of Quad biking within and around Nairobi.

Quad Biking at Lukenya Motorcross

Quad Biking at Ngong Hills- Kompass
On the outskirts of Nairobi at about 45 minutes’ drive lies Ngong Hills the plays host to The Kompass. From the Ngong Hills height, you will have an epic view of Nairobi City and Quad Biking along this Horizon puts the icing on the cake.

Upon getting access to the venue, you will need an extra Kshs 1,000 to earn yourself a 10 minutes’ race on the Quadbikes.

Quad Biking at Two Rivers
Two Rivers can easily pass for ‘A City within a City ‘ title as most people refer to it. Located in the outskirts of Nairobi City along Limuru Road, one cannot miss it being a development second to none around the region.
Its status of a mini-city can be qualified by the fact that it hosts hundreds of business outlets. For instance, the Quad biking at Two Rivers is run by TSK-Kenya (Tactical Sports Kenya) which operates both indoors and Outdoor activities at the same location. Going by the name The Arena, TSK-Kenya has proven to be an adrenaline powerhouse, a one-stop-shop for paintball, Quadbikes rides, archery, VR, robot rides and several other electrifying games to marvel.
At The Arena you get to enjoy quad bike tournaments with your squad at affordable prices ranging between Kshs 500 – Kshs 2,000 and is open every day from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.
It’s however deeply frustrating and discouraging that they don’t outrightly share their activities charges on their social media platforms to help potential customers plan. At this free information age, I didn’t expect to have to call or go to the venue to get the charges applicable to respective activities. I hope somebody reads this and takes a step to make the information available.
For your planning, get in touch with the team on the below contact.
