Sandwich Harbour Half-Day Tour (4.5hours) from Walvis Bay

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Experience the adventure and beauty of exploring the Namib desert with your driver/guide. There are many interesting sights to see including desert fauna and flora, and giant sand dunes. Navigate the thin stretch of coast where giant dunes meet the Atlantic ocean on your way to Sandwich Lagoon.

Hotel pickups in Walvis Bay ( Swakopmund pickups at N$100.00 per person) and lunch that includes finger snacks, sparkling wine and something sweet is included.
  • See native wildlife on a Sandwich Harbour day tour from Walvis Bay 
  • Explore a dramatic coastal landscape
  • Included gourmet lunch features Namibian oysters and drinks
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at selected Walvis Bay hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel or on the Walvis Bay waterfront, getting an early start on the day to enjoy cooler morning temperatures as you travel. On your way to Sandwich Harbour, visit the Walvis Bay Lagoon, where hundreds of thousands of flamingos gather during the rainy months. Next, learn about the facilities of the Walvis Bay Salt Refiners and head into the Namib Desert, searching out the wildlife and desert plants that thrive in this harsh landscape. Upon arrival at Sandwich Harbour, you’ll have time to discover the gorgeous sandy coast, with a break for lunch at the Sandwich Lagoon (weather permitting). After another trip to the shore, this tour concludes with the return trip to Walvis Bay, and drop-off at your original departure point.
