Overview
The scenery on this 5 hour private adventure really is amazing, both in quality and variety. We start off at the Lagoon of Walvis Bay home to Flamingo and sometimes Pelican, along with other sea birds. Very interesting is the Salt Processing works south of Walvis Bay with it's striking pink water and mountains of white salt.  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. We will also be driving on the beach itself if the tides allow it. 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. More about that here. (http://www.awesomechapters.com/tidal-access/)  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.  If you 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, and quite exciting.  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. We will provide a privacy tent, seat, toilet paper and a hole in the ground if needed. We offer free pickup in Walvis Bay, 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! In short, you will see many beautiful things, so bring your camera!

Evert picked us and another couple up from our ship and we had a great day. He took us to a place to see flamingos and pelicans while he let some air out of his Toyota Land Cruiser's tires. We drove past salt pans and headed down the beach on our way to Sandwich Harbour. The

4x4 trip to Sandwich Harbor with my wife yesterday.
Super, Super. Exhilarating drive on the dunes, but yet felt safe. The scenery is gorgeous, pictures do no justice.
