Giant sand dunes run straight into the ocean, creating breathtaking sceneries and a unique off road driving experience. Our landrovers take you to beautiful lookouts where you can feel the isolation Namibia and the Skeleton Coast are so famous for! We offer full and have day trips to Sandwich Harbour, as well as combination tours with Boat trips and Kayaking. « less

I did the Sandwich Harbour 4x4 afternoon trip. Absolutely worth it. Very knowledgeable guides who were really familiar with the environment, animals and birds. We saw springboks and ostriches and the views are spectacular. The dune driving was exciting but the colours of the dunes, ocean and sky were the real winners.

We booked an afternoon 4x4 tour of Sandwich Harbour. Our guide Pieter was superb. We visited the flamingos at the lagoon first, then we stopped to watch seals in the surf, before driving into Sandwich Harbour where we spent a good amount of time on the dunes. Coming back we drove to the top of a dune and walked down... More

Did the 'Combo' which started at 7:45. Driven to lighthouse on sand peninsular from where we had a double kayak together to see the seals - something like 50,000 of them ! Water calm so very safe even for inexperienced/novice folk - seals were wonderful, playful, cheeky ! Then drove down the peninsular to Sandwich Harbour and up and down... More

Without doubts one of the most interesting outdoor activities in Namibia. If you go to the Coast you can't miss it. Sandwich Harbour is a wonderful place unique in the world. You can really taste the Namib desert. You only must be lucky to find the right guide, some of the guys are really unprofessional. Herman is without doubts the... More

Not many things get teenagers out of bed at 6am on holiday! The chance to kayak among thousands of seals was enough for our two. And we were rewarded with a truly stunning experience. Not just a few seals. Not just a few hundred. Thousands of them. Swimming around the kayaks. Diving under the kayaks. We stroked them as they... More

We did a halfday tour with Naude. He was very professional and gave us a lot of information on the area. The dunes have a very interesting history. They also went out of their way to find dune larks for my husband. We should have done the full day, we were surprised how much distance we had to cover. The... More

We loved our afternoon 4x4 trip out to Sandwich Harbour which we had as a combo with the Eco Marine Kayak trip in the morning. It was an absolute thrill ride!! With a gorgeous lunch on the beach at Sandwich Harbour, and some hair-raising rides up and down the dunes, we were utterly exhausted by the end of the day.... More

We are traveling with a small child, but the owners gave us one of their car seats. We did the morning tour today with Naude. He was in his natural habitat in the dunes. We took some amazing photos of the dunes and the Atlantic next to it. The longer tour might be even nicer, but we did not want... More
