Extraordinary landscapes

The towering dunes of Namibia, the country’s incredible landscapes and the misty coastline combine to create breathtaking landscapes. A trip to this part of the Namib Desert is a dream come true for photographers and nature lovers.

Should tides and weather conditions prevent access to the Sandwich Lagoon, your guide will take you to a view point instead.

Walvis Bay salt refinery

Up to 750 000 tons of salt is refined per year at the biggest solar evaporation plant in Africa.

Description:

For a thrilling adventure and breathtaking landscapes, join us for a half-day guided tour or Sandwich Harbour. Situated close to Walvis Bay in the Namib-Naukluft National Park is a birder’s paradise.

The Walvis Bay area was once a busy commercial port where whaling and small-scale fishing took place. The Namib Desert is a dream destination for photography and nature enthusiasts. Four-wheel driving on the massive sand dunes is an experience on its own and of course, there’s a lot on offer in the area if you’re interested in the history and culture of the region.
