Sandwich Harbour, part of the famous Namib Naukluft Park is a unique landscape with breath-taking sceneries which many may have heard of but very few have had the privilege to visit. It boasts with huge sand dunes that run straight into the Atlantic Ocean and untamed landscapes just waiting to be discovered.

Your first encounter will be the masses of Flamingos harvesting at the Walvis Bay Lagoon on the way to Sandwich Harbour. The 4x4 excursion to Sandwich Harbour then takes a turn and we cross beautiful dunes and the Kuisebmond Delta where Springbok may be spotted in the dry river bed. When weather and tides allows us, we'll take a relaxing and exciting drive to the Sandwich Harbour Lagoon area. The Lagoon is one of Southern Africa's richest and most unique wetlands.

During the trip we take time out to treat our guests with a light lunch consisting of freshly prepared sandwiches, snacks and fresh Namibian Oysters. Sparkling wine and juice are served to compliment the meal. Your guide will also take this time to enlighten and educate guests with some interesting facts and stories of the area.

Moon Valley & Welwitschia Plains Tour

Millions of years and even more cubic metres of water contributed to form the unworldly lunar-like landscape called the Moon Valley. A visit to the coastal area of Namibia will not be complete without experiencing this extraordinary peace of land.  The trip will start in Swakopmund from where we go inland towards the Swakop river valley. The trip will include astonishing viewpoints for the photographers.

A visit to the musical rocks that resonate like a bell when struck is also on the list. From here we visit the lichen fields which can be hundreds or even thousands of years old. Rear and ancient desert plants can be spotted on the way and off course this includes the endemic Welwitschia Mirabilis, ”Namibia’s famous fossil”.

Both these tours will leave you awestruck with the realization that to the untrained eye the Namib Desert may look lifeless and barren, but on the contrary, the Namib is a living mecca with never before seen fauna & flora.
