SANDWHICH HARBOUR DUNE DRIVE
robably one of the most exciting and memorable scenic 4×4 off-road tours you can go on. Our popular Sandwich Harbour tour starts in Swakopmund and onto Walvisbay, we share interesting facts along the way to the Ramsar wetlands of the Walvis Bay Lagoon and Pink lakes of the enormous Saltworks. We pass some 54 bird species of various endemic and palearctic migratory birds numbering up to 150 000 birds in our summer. Flamingos, Pelicans, Turnstone, Avocets, Sandpipers, Plovers and an array of Terns and Gulls are seen along the way.
The sandy route takes us to the most awesome dune views, where dune meets sea. Past dilapidated Houses of yesteryear scattered on the beach disturbed by raging springtides. Up the towering wind sculptured dunes, a heart stopping swooping roller coaster ride to the unexpected, lush wetland scenery of Sandwich Harbour at your feet. It is STUNNING! It’s Awesome! Its Unforgettably beautiful! We find a lone spot to absorb the tranquillity and vastness of the dunes and serve up a light tasty lunch with beverages. The quietness absorbs us, the vastness and beauty stun us. Its unique. Its Sandwich Harbour. We share the very unknown history of Sandwich Harbour, strewn with Skeletons searching for Seals, Jackals, Springbuck, and what life the desert has to offer… The adrenaline packed dune drive home follows over towering dunes and steep slip faces, past astounding dune views, salt pans and unexpected greenery. These hummocks of Sedges and !Nara plants are home to mice, geckos, lizards and even Oryx. This is most certainly a high lite in Namibia, creating unforgettable memories.
This half day tour can be booked mornings or afternoons. An ideal tour to add onto a morning activity.
