WHO WE ARE
Hailing from the sandy dunes of South Africa, Baboon Adventures is the UKs first three-wheeled electric scooter tour operator!
Currently based on the gorgeous plains of Charlton Park Estate, Malmesbury,
we provide a completely unique way to enjoy sight-seeing or an adrenaline rush for all you thrill-seekers out there!
Eco-friendliness is woven into the fabric of our DNA so our scooters are all 100% electric, meaning we never disturb the wildlife or pollute the surrounding area.
In fact you will often find that horses, deer and red kites join us on the trail!
We embrace the ever-changing nature of the Great British weather so we operate in all seasons, be it hot and sunny, wet and muddy or even in the snow!
