This unique desert tour concentrates on exploring the local dune belt between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund at the Namibian Atlantic coast of Namibia. You can explore the Namib Desert and discover its many wonders. Plenty of time is available for frequent stops to take photos of the dunes and the surrounding environment. Namib, which means vast and empty, leaves images of total desolation to the onlooker. This is true to a certain degree, but the contrary, the life giving fog supports a wealth of fauna and flora. Your guide will stop continuously to look for tracks (known locally as reading the bushman paper), to determine which animals were active the night before and wherever possible will try to catch some of them to show you. Great care is taken in sharing knowledge with you on each desert animal, including emphasis on special adaptations and perfect design used for survival in the desert. Time and care is taken to ensure each animal is returned safely to its home. Come explore this wealth of life with us. Sidewinder Snakes, White Lady Spiders, Namaqua Chameleons, Dancing Lizards and much more can be seen. Excellent photographic opportunity for nature lovers.

Boats depart fr om Walvis Bay Yacht Club in the morning and cruise the harbour through to the Bird Island, and then cut across the lagoon to moored trawlers wh ere inquisitive seals will swim up to the boats for something to eat. From there boats head for Pelican Point where entertainment is provided by a large seal colony and schools of dolphins swimming alongside the boats. Dolphins sighted are the Heavyside and Bottlenose. For the bird lovers, apart from seeing many flamingos, cormorants, and pelicans, there are common sightings of the White Chinned Petrel, Wilson's Storm Petrel, Cape Gannet, Black Oystercatcher and even the Jackass Penguin.
