Private 4x4 half day tour - Welwitschia Adventure - Awesome ChaptersDay Trips

Private 4x4 half day tour - Welwitschia Adventure - Awesome Chapters

star-5
This is a true private adventure! With us you will explore the desert all the way up to the very remote Welwitchia Miriabilis plants.  Along the way from Walvis Bay you will see a little bit of Dune 7 while we stop there. You are welcome to climb the dune and experience the sand for yourself. We provide cool bottled water at this activity.  While we are traveling over the gravel plains, we will stop and explore the special plants that have adapted to live in this climate. Of special interest here is the Lichen growing on rocks, as well as the two common types of brush.  The spectacular Swakop river canyon is better known as the Moon Landscape. We will stop for photographs and to take in the many earthy colors and texture of this magical place, before a slow drive into the canyon to view the rock formations up close.  In the bed of the Swakop river is the Goanikontes oasis, where we will stop for coffee or other refreshments, as well as use the excellent toilet facilities if we need to.  From the Oasis we will explore the river bed where we drive 20km along the riverbed. The rock formations here vary greatly in color and shape, and is a geologist’s dream! With a bit of luck we will also see some wild animals, with ostrich being the most common.  There is quite a bit of information on the Welwitchia at the designated parking area. It is amazing how this plant has survived, and the adaptations it has to survive in it’s harsh surroundings.  On our way back to Swakopmund we will stop for some refreshments at camping spots in the riverbed.  We have a quick drive through Swakopmund, with our road detouring enough to show you the Mole, Jetty and some of the buildings from the 1900’s.  The last treat on this tour is the coastal road between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. The Dune belt and the ocean meet for some spectacular views. We offer free pickup in Walvis Bay & Swakopmund, including the harbor of Walvis Bay, for this tour. As we are still solving the issues with the booking systems, please provide us with an email address on your booking so that we can give you with the best experience possible. We offer the cheapest private tours on the coast. Our pricing changes by group size, and is the lowest per person for groups of four or more passengers. Even lower than our shared experience competition! Bring your camera.

Private 4x4 day tour - Landscapes and Landmarks - Awesome ChaptersDay Trips

Private 4x4 day tour - Landscapes and Landmarks - Awesome Chapters

star-5
The surroundings of Walvis Bay and Swakopmund has some of the most varied landscapes anywhere in the world!  On this private excursion we will be seeing the Salt Processing works where the incredible pink lakes of super-salty water is used to produce table and industrial salts, the tranquil beaches of the Pelican Point with it's abundant wildlife. From the mud flats to sand dunes and gravel plains. We drive past the dune belt twice, once with gravel plains on the one side and dunes on the other, and then the next time we drive the coastal road, between the dunes and the ocean. The Swakop River canyon is better known as the Moon Landscape, and one can clearly see why. It is simply out of this world! We view it from the top, and drive through the riverbed that carved these amazing rock formations. This riverbed is deep into the desert, and the contrast between the canyon and plains are breathtaking.  No visit to the coast is complete without a visit to Swakopmund, where we marvel at how people were able to settle in this inhospitable land with such style. Between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay we will see two lighthouses up close and the lagune at Walvis Bay (a RAMSAR site).  In Swakopmund we will see both the Mole and the Jetty, as well as other historic buildings from Swakopmund's German past.   We offer free pickup in Walvis Bay & Swakopmund, including the harbor of Walvis Bay, for this tour. As we are still solving the issues with the booking systems, please provide us with an email address on your booking so that we can give you with the best experience possible. We offer the cheapest private tours on the coast. Our pricing changes by group size, and is the lowest per person for groups of four or more passengers.

Private day tour - Ganab desert loop - Awesome ChaptersDay Trips

Private day tour - Ganab desert loop - Awesome Chapters

star-5
Ganab is the name of this private tour, and this is one of the places we visit, but there are a lot of other places we explore on this adventure! The theme of this trip is the desolate desert between the Swakop River and the dreaded C14 national road. Very arid and isolated, it is quite rare and well worth seeing. From the dune belt at the coast the landscape changes rapidly to wide open spaces and gravel plains. On these gravel plains the plantlife has adapted quite uniquely to the desolate surroundings.  We visit the scenic Moon Landscape and Goanikones oasis on the way to Blutkoppen. The oasis has a nice restaurant and very good toilet facilities, which are needed on long trips like this. This is usually followed by an hour's drive up the Swakop river bed to see some wildlife that inhabit the river. Blutkoppe is well worth visiting for it's wind carved caves and sensual shapes. Getting to the caves requires a bit of walking, and elevation, so it is not suitable for the mobility impaired. This part can be skipped, of course, and substituted with a drive to the Tinkas Dam.  From the Tinkas area we drive along the escarpment to the Ganab area. While we prepare for lunch here, there is usually wildlife to watch, ranging from Giraffe, Ostrich, Jackal, Oryx and wild boar.  For lunch we find some shade and usually prepare a Barbecue in nature! However, if this is not to your liking, we can do pick nick or lunch boxes or whatever fits into our fridges. The surroundings are beautiful, and well worth exploring while we wait for the fire to be ready.  The desert changes quite a lot with rainfall and the wildlife moves around, so no two tours are the same, some may be bone dry, and others have lush greenery and wildlife everywhere.  It is worth mentioning that some of the roads that we will be traveling are quite corrugated, and traveling over them can be quite noisy. Your vehicle for this adventure is a trustworthy Toyota FJ80, with air conditioning, and can handle the rough road. Vogelvederberg boasts some impressive wind carved rock formations, and is a good lookout over the desert, and makes a welcome break to stretch our legs on the return journey to Walvis Bay. We offer free pickup in Walvis Bay & Swakopmund, including the harbor of Walvis Bay, for this tour. As we are still solving the issues with the booking systems, please provide us with an email address on your booking so that we can give you with the best experience possible. We offer the cheapest private tours on the coast. Our pricing changes by group size, and is the lowest per person for groups of four or more passengers. Even lower than our shared experience competition! All this nature is exquisitely beautiful.... bring your camera!

Private day tour - Messum Crater - Awesome ChaptersDay Trips

Private day tour - Messum Crater - Awesome Chapters

The intriguing Messum crater is quite remote, but we make this private trip entertaining by visiting quite a few sites along the Skeleton Coast along the way. The crater is technically in the Damaraland, and quite dry and rocky with a stark beauty. The environment is harsh and the desert is unforgiving. Not many people visit this awesome landmark of Namibia, and you will feel like you are the first person there quite often. Highly recommended for people who like to explore and see some of the more remote places on earth. In this area we will see some magnificent examples of the Welwitschia Mirabilis (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welwitschia). We will also see some San (Bushmen) paintings while we have our lunch. The sights we will see along the way are the Zeila shipwreck and the Cape Fur Seal colony at Cape Cross. The road surface for most of the tour is tar and very smooth salt road, but once we venture off the national roads it does become corrugated and bumpy.  We offer free pickup in Walvis Bay & Swakopmund, including the harbor of Walvis Bay, for this tour. As we are still solving the issues with the booking systems, please provide us with an email address on your booking so that we can give you with the best experience possible. We offer the cheapest private tours on the coast. Our pricing changes by group size, and is the lowest per person for groups of four or more passengers.

Private day tour - #Aionin & Gobabeb - Awesome ChaptersDay Trips

Private day tour - #Aionin & Gobabeb - Awesome Chapters

This private tour is an outreach to the people living in the part of the Kuiseb river that is in the Namib-Naukluft park. The Topnaar, or #Aionin (In their own language) have been living in the Kuiseb river for as long as they can remember, and were given exclusive rights to harvest the #Nara plant by Queen Elisabeth of England when they claimed Walvis Bay as the last English colony. Recently this right was expanded to include a concession over the Kuiseb Delta. Despite all this, the #Aionin is still struggling, especially the people living in the Namib-Naukluft park.  On this tour you will meet these people, and have the pleasure to hand over much needed supplies from town.  The other very weird tribe inhabiting the Kuiseb river is the bunch of scientists at the Gobabeb research station. An exceedingly friendly bunch, with very interesting stories to tell. They are also happy to take you on either a tour of the facility where they showcase their work, or on a nature walk where they show you the area where the actual research takes place. Quite aptly named "Nature walk" it is an amazing experience.  We will have a lunch at Gobabeb, prepared by the kitchen staff of this facility.  The road between Gobabeb and our next destination of Vogelvederberg has some rough spots. Our tour vehicle is more than capable of soaking up the abuse, but it is a bit noisy. When traveling through this bit, keep in mind that this is the road to work for the people at Gobabeb. We stop at Vogelvederberg to stretch our legs a little and marvel at the rock formations and flat landscape. The last 50km of road to Walvis Bay is thankfully very good, and you can marvel at the landscape unfolding in peace.  We offer the cheapest private tours on the coast. Our pricing changes by group size, and is the lowest per person for groups of four or more passengers. Even lower than our shared experience competition!
