We were treated to a full day tour with Berger as our guide who really is a very knowledgeable person. We drove along the beach to Sandwich Harbour seeing various wildlife along the way including jackals and flamingos. Our trip into the dunes was amazing and having lunch with a view of the dunes on one side and the sea... More

We were specially privileged to have Bruno to drive us on our second trip to Sandwich harbour with Turnstone. Apart from exceptional driving skills he has encyclopaedic knowledge of the flora, fauna and geology of the area and despite his long experience he shows his interest and enthusiasm has in no way diminished. The trip was constantly interesting. Sometimes like... More

We joined our guide, Burger, for a half day tour of the desert between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. Starting in the dunes, Burger was immediately on the lookout for signs/tracks of creatures living there. He found geckos, beetles, ants and a chameleon, sadly he was unable to find any snakes. This did not spoil the day as he was entertaining... More

We went with a lovely gentleman called Achim and his battered Landrover. His knowledge of Namibia, and particularly the desert area around Swakopmund was encyclopaedic - but so interesting, funny and just all you want in a guide. I was not bored for a moment and Achim answered all the questions we fired at him seemingly as though it was... More

On the day of the tour we were collected by a gentleman called Achim who was our guide. He was excellent. His rugged landrover was in good condition. We learned so much about the area... More

We went on an all day tour of Sandwich Harbor and the dunes with Turnstone. Sandwich Harbor was amazing but we couldn't stay long because of the tides. We then spent a lot of time cruising the dunes and looking for wildlife. The tour was probably a little too long (unless you seriously like riding in the dunes). The driver... More
