You’ll enjoy a trip with Teddy and his buggy !
Buggy, quad, bike and MTB on Reunion Island: what’s the difference ?

A buggy and a quad are both off-road, exploration vehicles with four wheels. With the compulsory seatbelt, steering wheel and accelerator pedal, the buggy is more like a car than the quad. On a quad, you don’t need to wear a seatbelt, but a safety helmet is compulsory.

The MTB is characterised by its narrower wheels, thicker tyres and it’s lightweight, making it more suitable for rugged terrain.

Don't go like that !
