“Just try it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

A fantastic morning with Chris that really opened our eyes. There are so many absolutely beautiful, albeit small, creatures out there in the dunes. Seeing them was just wonderful, and being taught how to photograph them even better! We have some close up memories now. A fantastic and attention-holding outing for kids (and others). Just try it.

“Living Desert with Chris! Dec 12”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Whoa, even for a Namibian that have been to Swakopmund and the desert many times this was an eye opener.

The tours was fabulous, Chris have excellent knowledge and his concept of the "little five" is stunning, makes one appreciate nature in a "micro" way.

We had 3 children with and even for them it was entertaining and fun, my daughter commented this morning again that she want to go again when we visit Swakopmund.

Chris have been doing this for 15 years and was the first company / guide to start the Living Desert tour with the little five concept, he should be applaud for all his work to get the !Dorob National Park going and working hard to get special protection for the breeding grounds of the Damara Tern.

The Living Desert Tour with Chris and Dane is a must for every visitor to Swakopmund (local or tourists)!

Thanks for making me look at the Namibian desert with different eyes!

“a wonderful introduction to the desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Living Desert Adventures should be ranked #1. This was a fantastic experience for a lady who is quite phobic about bugs and things that slide under or peak out from under the sand. I learned a lot and kept thinking about all the people...my kids and grandkids...who must have this experience. I am trying to figure out how to make that happen. Our guide for the day --- Chris -- is extremely knowledgeable and very much an environmentalist....and a superb teacher. His enthusiasm for his habitat was catching.

If you go to Swakopmund (a totally pleasant town), this desert tour is a must. Don't get it mixed up with the one that sounds almost the same!

“Wow what a suprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

We really enjoyed Chris and this trip. He is knowledgeable, funny and passionate about the desert. He is able to educate and entertain whilst at the same time getting his own message about protecting this special place across.
Its not just about lions and elephants, the little guys are just as much fun.
