Half-Day 4×4 Experience –  Sandwich Harbour – 4 ½  Hours

Set off in a 4×4 from the Walvis Bay Waterfront to discover the ancient dunes of the Namib and their inhabitants. The views alone are enough to make this trip worthwhile, but you could also see black-backed jackals, springbok, ostriches, oryx, fog-basking beetles, dancing spiders, shovel-snouted lizards, palmato geckos and golden moles.

These tours depart at 7h45 and 12h30 daily, and the tour takes in the high Roaring Dune, Walvis Bay saltpans and lagoon, Kuiseb River Delta and the mudflats of Sandwich Harbour.

You’ll also get a chance to try your hand at dune-riding during the trip.
