For more information on COVID-19, contact the Coronavirus Health Information line on 1800 020 080, or visit SA Health.

Thank you for your support during this period.

What are your opening hours?

Little Sahara is open daily 9am – 5pm (Oct-April) 10am – 4pm (May-Sept).

Trading hours over Christmas vary, check our latest news for the updated hours. Closed Christmas Day.

Outside of these hours the site is gated and locked.

Where do the tours start from?

Our Buggy, Fat Bike and Walking Tours all begin and end at our Visitor Centre at Little Sahara, 3733 South Coast Road, Vivonne Bay, Kangaroo Island.

What should I bring?

We suggest bringing a small backpack to carry your personal items:

  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Camera
  • A water bottle
  • For tours: enclosed shoes
  • A raincoat if it looks like rain

Can I bring my dog?

No dogs are permitted to enter due to being a risk to wildlife. Native animals are vulnerable to diseases that dogs may carry, and can easily be scared off by barking or the scents left by dogs. The smell and sight of dogs are enough to cause these native animals stress, and in some cases, even abandon their babies. Assistance dogs should be allowed.

Do I need to book?

Yes. Availability is limited, booking in advance will ensure we have the right bike and guide available to take you on tour.

You can book a tour on our secure booking system (Click HERE), FREECALL us on 1800 836 126 or call in to see us at Little Sahara, 3733 South Coast Highway, Vivonne Bay.

What is the age limit?

Buggy Tour: 3 years old is the minimum age.
Fat Bike Tour: 8 years old is the minimum age.
Boarding / Walking Tour: No minimum age, at your own supervision.
Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

What if it rains?

Our tours run in most weather conditions, with the exception of storms, hail or gale-force winds, as your safety is our first priority.
Please bring a raincoat.

Do you supply helmets?

Sandboarding / Tobogganing: Helmets are for hire on site for $10 each, they are strongly recommended! Alternatively you are more than welcome to bring your own.

Buggy/Bike Tours: Yes – it is the law in Australia to wear helmets when riding bikes or in the buggy, and all of out tours include an Australian Standards approved helmet that must be worn at all times. Some people prefer to bring their own helmets on our tours. This is ok, provided you present them to us before the tour so that we can ensure that they are an Australian Standards approved design and in good order.

Can I bring my own sandboard?

You are welcome to bring your own sandboards/toboggans for a levy of $20 per board. This helps cover our insurance, staffing and other overheads so we can continue to manage and protect this unique site. However, our hire boards have been specially crafted to slide on Little Sahara’s dunes, and often guests own boards don’t slide as fast. Little Sahara Adventure Centre will not be held liable for damage caused to customers own equipment if damaged or lost.

When do tours run?

Our tours run daily all year round during our opening hours – spring, summer, autumn and winter.
