This was a very interesting full day tour. We started off by spotting dolphins at Walvis Bay, then flamingos and a big flock of pelicans being very greedy and scoffing loads of fish. The drive to Sandwich Harbour took us past the salt pans and...More

We did the full-day tour out of Swakopmund, with Bruno and Burger. What a day! Driving on the beach, trapped on one side by the waves, and the other by the dunes. Burger's expert driving was a marvel to watch. We drove over the dunes...More
