It was a very good option in Walvis Bay and less expensive than the shore excursions offered on our cruise. The guide took us to many wonderful areas to see wildlife. It was colorful and fantastic. The only criticisms that we had of this was the rough ride to the top of a dune at one point and no bathroom options on an over 4 hour AM tour. The latter really needs to be addressed.
Hi there! Thanks so much for the overall positive review.
In regards with the toilets, we will look into our options on the matter. However, this is not easy, as the tour is to a remote place, which has no civilization, including toilets.
To provide for this will raise the price of the tour considerably. For now we will annotate the tour so that it is not a surprise to our customers, at least.
Thanks again for the good advice, we can certainly use it to improve!
While staying in Swakopmund we wanted to visit the unique Peninsula Pelican Point which we had heard of so much. The best way to do it is hiring a local driver and we can definitely recommend Evert with whom we did this fantasic trip. Although we booked on very short notice, the tour was perfectly organised. After our booking, he immediately got in touch with us and asked for preferences and a place to meet. When we arrived at the Meeting Point, he was already waiting for us with his 4x4 car. First we went to the salt mine south of Walivs Bay. The Colours of the water in the large basins are amazing. He told us a lot of background Information about the salt mining, which we really enjoyed. Afterwards we headed towards Pelican Point. On the way we saw a jackal and of cause pelicans. We got as much time as we needed to take pictures. Close to the light house we came close to one of the seal Colonies there. It is amazing how large they are. Evert offered us Cold Drinks and a Snack out there, which was lovely. Since he is a local and he knows the area very well, he could tell us so much interesting Information we would never had received when we went there alone. The latter I would not recommend to anyone, since there is no mobile connection out there and nobody who could help. With Evert, we felt perfectly save as he had Radio Connection and was very experienced with his car. We enjoyed and the price-performance-Ratio was excellent - definitely recommended!
