Sandwich Harbour 4x4 Tour (Half Day)

Walvis Bay

Activity Description

SANDWICH HARBOUR TOUR
Sandwich Harbour is a place where you have to go or regret it for the rest of your life. Where else in the world can you drive with your window open, put one hand in the Atlantic Ocean and with the other hand touch the highest dunes in the world?

Sandwich is only accessible with a good 4 wheel drive vehicle and a fully qualified driver who has lots of experience of the dunes.

The Sandwich Harbour tour starts in Walvis Bay with a visit to the flamingos in the lagoon and a stop on the dunes at the Salt Works, to see where the salt comes from that melts the snow in Europe!

From there we drive through the Kuiseb Delta where the sight of a Springbok or two is not uncommon and over the salt plains to the Namib Naukluft Park border. Once inside, we drive on the beach to Sandwich Harbour.

At Sandwich Harbour lagoon we stop so our clients can take a stroll alongside the lagoon for photos of the birds and beautiful nature scenes.

On our way back we visit a viewpoint on the dunes to look down on the lagoon, from where we drive for approx. 6km through the dunes back to the border.

On this route, we stop at places where animals dig for freshwater and slide down dunes to listen to the roaring sand.

Sandwich Harbour used to have small freshwater lagoons as well, but that, unfortunately, is busy disappearing under the moving dunes
