This informative tour also looks into what we call “the future of the Central Namiba”, as we inform our guests about planned future industrial activities as well as existing ones in the area, due to the growth of uranium mining and other related industry.

This spectacular area is also home to some wildlife, and we might just spot springbok, ostrich, klipspringer, Swallow-tailed Bee-eater, Karoo Chat and others. Smaller creatures, such as chameleons and beetles call this home too.

For lunch we will stop at a shady spot to recharge body and spirit with a tasty lunch and some cold refreshments. Then we continue the Swakop River to Goanikontes, an “oasis” that played an important role during the colonial times.

Before we return to Swakopmund, we stop at the sand dunes to round off an informative and great day in the oldest desert in the world.

The morning explores the little creatures, while the afternoon offers an exploration of the botanical side of the desert.

From the Orange River in the south to the Kunene in the north, the coastline of Namibia ranges 1570 kilometres. The lagoon of Sandwich Harbour lies like a jewel between the dunes and the Atlantic Ocean.

After a short visit to Walvis Bay we drive south, passing the colourful evaporation fields of the salt works and enjoy an adventurous drive through the majestic dunes and along the sea. The last kilometres to Sandwich Harbour can only be managed at low water level by a very experienced driver. Plenty of fish attract lake and land birds since the pent-up ground water provides lots of plants to protect their offspring. We enjoy a lovely picnic in an unspoiled environment with terrific scenes and landscapes as a background. Sand covered ruins from colonial times where guano was harvested and transported back to Walvis Bay can still be seen. Sandwich Harbour is a paradise for ornithologists and photographers from all over the world. Our way back leads us through the large Kuiseb Delta, also home to many bird species, jackal, brown hyaena, springbuck and many more. This tour is truly a great outing.
