CLASSIC SANDWICH HARBOUR EXPERIENCE
This Tour is most certainly a MUST DO on your Namibia Holiday.
Our Sandwich Harbour Dune Tour starts in Swakopmund, as we pass through the small German town, we discuss historic builds and sites enroute to Walvisbay. We watch the rising sun cast shadows on the Dunes, exposing their beautiful silhouette. We stop at Bird Island also known as the Guano Island, which can house up to 200 000 Cormorants, Pelicans, and Flamingos and onto Walvisbay. We see thousands of Flamingos and we learn more about them and their Habitat, the Ramsar acclaimed Walvisbay Lagoon Wetland with up to 300 000 birds and 54 resident species of waders and palearctic migrators. The route takes us past the enormous Salt Works, the Lagoon, the pink Salt Lakes and onto the sandy beach shore.
We take a desert game drive through the !Nara valley searching for Oryx, Ostrich, and Springbuck, amongst the little greenery the animals live in.
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.
The dune drive is exhilarating, as we traverse towering dunes and steep slip faces, through salt pans and back onto the sandy shores the way we came.
Classic Sandwich Harbour Experience; the emotions, the feelings, the scenery, the taste of the desert, never to be forgotten. Sadly, our day ends at your accommodation.
