Sandwich Harbour Dune Excursion @ Jen's Bookings

star-5
Sandwich Harbour is a natural untouched beauty that many has heard about, but very few have ever gotten the opportunity to visit. The first stop is at a point along the lagoon where the masses of flamingoes can be viewed. A short drive further we ascend the well known Salt pan dune to the east of the Salt works to show the clients a top view of the alluring “pink water” in the salt pans. We continue our tour and eventually enter the Namib Naukluft Park at the northern border where it meets the Atlantic Ocean. A drive along the beach follows where the occasional Seal or Jackal is observed close to the beach. This drive brings us to the point where sand and sea meets and tides permitting we will enter towards Sandwich Harbour. If the tide is high we enter the dunes and drive to a high point where Sandwich Harbour can be seen from the top of the dunes along the Ocean. An exciting drive through the dunes follows where the magnificent splendor of the dunes of the Namib surrounds us.

Precious Pelican Point 3 hour private off-road tour

star-5
Family-friendly and private offroad tour to the Cape Fur Seal colony at Pelican Point.  The tour starts off in Walvis Bay with the first stop being the lagoon. The Flamingo are not tame, though. The weather is usually better in the morning, and your chances of a glassy ocean is much better. With a bit of luck you might also see the Great White Pelican here.  Crossing the sand spit which makes Walvis Bay the best harbor on the West Coast of Africa, might see some wildlife if they are in the area. The Cape Fur Seal is 100,000 strong, you will never forget the experience of being there.  Together with the Lighthouse there is also a small shipwreck at Pelican Point with a big legacy. This is the wreck of one of 14 Norwegian whalers that hunted the whales that gave Walvis Bay it's name to near extinction. This place is steeped in history, your friends will be jealous at home when you show and tell this trip!

Introduction to Walvis Bay 4 hour private tourHalf-day Tours

Introduction to Walvis Bay 4 hour private tour

Nestled between the dunes and the ocean, Walvis Bay is Namibia's only deep water port. Originally started as a whaling station, Walvis Bay has grown into an industrial powerhouse for Namibia. On your private tour of this peculiar town you will be amazed at the many ingenious ways that the settlers here tamed the desert.  On your visit to Dune 7 you can see the harsh environment that the town sprang up in. You will explore the various neighborhoods of Walvis Bay, with their differing cultures. The tourist area is the Walvis Bay Waterfront at the lagoon and old part of town, where we can stop for refreshments before going to the Lagoon to view the wildlife. Please remember if you want to buy any curios you might need a copy of your passport.  Meersig is the first extension to Walvis Bay and shoulders most of the burden of keeping the sand out of the rest of town. Just how the desert is kept at bay will be shown to you.  Pickup is free in Walvis Bay. Please bring your camera!

Sensational Sandwich Harbor 5 hour private tour

The scenery on this 5 hour private adventure really is amazing, both in quality and variety. Most of the 60km to Sandwich harbor is along the coast between our fascinating plants that have adapted to living in such windy and salty conditions. Here you might see some cape fur seal, black backed jackal and black backed Cape Cormorant.  Access to Sandwich harbor is tidal, which means we cannot enter the harbor at high tide. Sandwich harbor itself has two natural tidal lagoons. Your guide will take you for a walk at the side of the lagoon, if you want to. We can take you to the top of the dunes at Sandwich for a better view of the area, or you can climb the dune yourself, if you prefer.  Please note, this tour goes into nature, far from civilization. As such, there are no toilets. We will provide a privacy tent, seat, toilet paper and a hole in the ground if needed. Free pickup in Walvis Bay. In short, you will see many beautiful things, so bring your camera!

Glorious Ganab & Blutkoppe 10 hour desert tourDay Trips

Glorious Ganab & Blutkoppe 10 hour desert tour

star-5
This loop through the desert shows off some stunningly beautiful desert landscapes between the Swakop River and the dreaded C14 national road. Very arid and isolated, it is worth seeing. From the dune belt at the coast the landscape changes rapidly to wide open spaces and gravel plains the views are spectacular. On these gravel plains the plant life has adapted quite uniquely to the desolate surroundings.  You will see the Swakop River Canyon, also known as the Moon Landscape, on the way to the Welwitschia plains and Blutkoppen. Blutkoppe is well worth visiting for it's wind carved caves and sensual shapes. Ganab has a watering hole. The desert changes 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.  Vogelvederberg boasts some impressive wind carved rock formations, and is a good lookout over the desert. All this nature is exquisitely beautiful.... bring your camera!

Amazing 2 Harbors private off road tour (Walvis Bay and Sandwich)Half-day Tours

Amazing 2 Harbors private off road tour (Walvis Bay and Sandwich)

The scenery on this 6 hour private adventure really is amazing, both in quality and variety.  As this is a private tour, it will be just your group on the tour, guaranteed. You will feel like an explorer of old with many places where there is no one else around, just awesome nature. With many stops for as long as you want on the interesting places makes your tour very photographer friendly. As your guide is a serious hobby photographer himself, you will feel right at home.  Starting off with a stop at the Lagoon of Walvis Bay which is a RAMSAR wildlife preserve site. The lagoon is home to Flamingo and sometimes Pelican, along with other sea birds.  South of Walvis Bay is the Walvis Bay Salt Holdings processing plant, with it's striking pink water and mountains of white salt. You will be taken to the top of the dune closest to the processing plant for a birds-eye view of the pink lakes. In the salt pans there is an abundance of sea birds, including the lesser and greater Flamingo.  Most of the 60km drive to Sandwich harbor is along the coast, first on a sandy plain, then between fascinating plants. These plants have adapted to living in such hostile windy and salty conditions. The drive on the beach itself is awesome, if the tides allow it. On the beach you might see some cape fur seal, black backed jackal and black backed Cape Cormorant.  Access to Sandwich Harbor is tidal, which means that it is not possible to enter at some times of the day, because of the high tide. You can read more about it here. (http://www.awesomechapters.com/tidal-access/)  Sandwich harbor itself has two natural tidal lagoons, which is a favorite spot for Flamingo, Pelican and a host of other bird species. Your guide will take you for a walk at the side of the lagoon, if you want to. For a better view of the area your guide will take you up to the view point at the top of the dunes at Sandwich. If dune driving is not your thing, you can climb the dune yourself, it's easy.  If you do like the thrill of driving on sand dunes, the return journey has the opportunity of some very large dunes and slip-faces. It's like a roller coaster without the rails.  If dune driving is not to your liking, you can leave Sandwich Harbor along the coast as well for a much more relaxed experience. On the way back there is a dune track with some wildlife, mostly Springbuck and Falcon, with the option of larger dunes for the adrenaline junkies.  You will also visit the lighthouse of Walvis Bay at Pelican Point, to see the second amazing harbor. The Point is home to a Cape Fur Seal colony, as well as some awesome sights of busy Walvis Bay and the dunes behind it. Your transport on this half day trip is a classic Land Cruiser FJ80, clean and tidy with good air conditioning for the hot days. Please note, this tour goes into nature, far from civilization. As such, there are no toilets. A privacy tent, seat, toilet paper and a hole in the ground will be provided if needed. Free pickup in Walvis Bay, including the harbor of Walvis Bay, is standard for this tour. There are 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. Rest assured that these the cheapest private tours on the coast. Per person pricing changes by group size, and is the lowest per person for groups of four or more passengers. In short, you will see many beautiful things, so bring your camera! P.S.  If you are viewing this tour on TripAdvisor or Viator, you probably won't see the optional extras for this tour, because the integration on those platforms has some bugs that are currently being worked on. The optional extras include: 1. Pickup in the harbor 2. Pickup in Swakopmund 3. Food for the tour 4.
