Sandwich Harbour is a part of the Namib Naukluft Park (Namibia) many have heard of but very few have ever visited. 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.

Fantastic scenery. The drive along the sea shore was stunning and the driving in the dunes exhilarating. Not sure if we had the best guide and vehicle......ours broke down in the dunes and had to be towed out. The worst part for me was no toilet facilities 😟

We did the combo catamaran and dunes trip and it was really good fun! The pelicans on the boat were the highlight in the morning although we also saw dolphins, seals and penguins. Lunch was fantastic with sparkling wine and oysters. The afternoon trip to the dunes was also great and sometimes a little scary. Again we stopped for sparking... More

This excursion was a highlight of the ones on my cruise. I set this up before going on the cruise. It was brought up in a cruise chat. We were picked up by the ship, and then driven to see the flamingos first. Then onto the salt processing plant area to oversee the beautiful purple colors. The next stage was... More

Our cruise ship spent the day in walvis bay and we decided that an off ship tour would be better option. Cheaper and so much better. More personalised as we were in four wheel drive with 6 othersinstead of 30 other people. Great fun driving over high sand dunes and then going down backwards, seeing seals, flamingos, ostriches, lots of... More

26 cruise ship passengers shared five 4 x 4 vehicles. We were treated to a thrilling ride up, down, and through massive (mountainous) sand dunes, by skilled drivers/guides. Several stops were made, providing amazing views of the dunes, the bay, salt flats, and the harbor. The guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. Along the way, we saw flamingos, pelicans, seals, and... More

My parents and I loved our tour to Sandwich Harbour. The lunch supplied was fantastic and it was lovely eating amongst the dunes out in nature. We never felt uncomfortable or unsafe during our drives and we learnt a lot from our guide about the desert environment and flora/fauna. I would definitely recommend.

You reach Sandwich Harbour with a beautiful drive on the beach with the Atlantic on your right and the huge dunes on your left. when you reach Sandwich Harbour climb the dune for a spectacular view and photos. The return drive is through the dunes and it is really fun. The drivers are experienced and very friendly. I really enjoyed... More

Had a great time 4x4 in the sand dunes with our friendly guide, Niko. Amazing landscape and scenery...sand dunes right up to the ocean. Time to explore the sand dunes on foot too, and topped of with a fine lunch Definitely worth the trip
