Amazing driving experience in a wonderful landscape of dunes and seashore populated of flamingos, sea lions and jackals. Very diversified Tour of 6 hours
Jacques was an excellent guide and skilled driver who trained us to drive up and down the dunes like in a rollercoaster. The area is restricted and requires a permit. Since Jacques is one of the lucky person on earth holding a permit, we could go to very protected places safely. The tour was full day, ad Jacques even extended1 extra hour.
Our 2 teens loved the experience as well and would do it again anytime. We ill surely come back
We highly recommend you this Self-drive tour, you will be taught technics to get out of sand when your car is stuck :-)

I was traveling to Namibia alone and it was difficult to find a tour. Communication from JP was very good and he was very accommodating in trying to help me find a tour as a solo traveler which I appreciated. I was able to join a couple who were on a self-guided driving tour of the dunes and sandwich harbour. Jacques and Rammie were great guide/driver. They were very knowledgeable, professional, and fun. Rammie who was instructing the couple doing the self driving through walkie talkie was very clear and patience with the instructions and making them feel comfortable driving on the sand. The drive out there was long and a bit bumpy cause of the sand but the views were amazing. If you can't make it to skeleton coast, this is a great alternative because here you drive along the shore with the dunes dropping into the ocean. I was scared driving on the dunes would be like a roller coaster, but when driving down a dune they go slow so it's reallly fun! The tour exceeded my expectations and the landscape was amazing! I would definitely recommend Red Dune Safaris and this tour. Thank you for an amazing experience!

My wife and I did a half day guided self drive from walvis bay to sandwich harbour. We drove on the beach, and then back in the dunes.
It was an amazing experience. First because the landscape is just wonderful, with the dunes falling into the ocean. Second because JP and Jacques are very professional. I had never driven in the sand before, and I felt very safe. They assisted me all the time with patience and care. And third of all the tour is very well organized by theses brothers: warm welcome, clear explanation of the game plan, ongoing assistance, explanation along the way, photo stops.
We have been delighted by this experience and would recommend to any person going to swakopmund / walvis bay to go on a self drive tour with JP and Jacques. It’s a MUST DO activity

If you want to reach Sandwich Harbour driving your own vehicle but don't want to lose it in the ocean or roll it in the dunes, Red Dune is the solution you're looking for.
Our guide Jacques was fantastic, always giving precious tips on how to manage difficulties, and sharing its knowledge on the environment and its history with passion.
It's definitely the perfect way to have fun without compromising on safety.

I did a private tour with Jacques to Sandwich Harbour and it was a real highlight!! The landscape itself is absolutely amazing, a must-see in Swakop! I could really take my time with taking pictures, he explained everything very well and was keen on spotting all of the animals there (jackals, springboks, geckos, seals). We didn't see anybody else there, it was really special. We spent one hour longer than was booked in the desert which was great. Thanks for the unique tour, would definitely do it again! :)

It was longer than the announced half day - and felt like a welcomingly full day spent in high dunes next to the ocean. We came home full of memories and experiences, salty air, and amazing views wherever we stopped and looked. Jacques took us to fantastic places and was generous with his comments about the place and its history. The day was truly brilliant thanks to him.

A really great day out! The tides made it a bit marginal, but it was a real adrenaline rush! Stunning scenery along the coast and to the harbour, and driving over the massive dunes was intimidating and a test of nerves. We never thought our car could get up and down dunes that steep.

But JP looked after us very well and gave us a brilliant day to remember.

Our trip with Jacques was fantastic and provided my wife and I with some great driving experiences in a wide variety of soft sand conditions. Doing this together with Jacques who was accompanying us in his own vehicle gave us the confidence to tackle some challenging climbs and descents. Jacques had the knowledge to give us valuable advice via the two way radios as we followed him along a route that we would never have tackled without this guidance. The scenery was amazing and Sandwich Harbour was a big surprise after the vast expanse of desolate dunes that surround it. I would definitely recommend this trip to any 4x4 enthusiast and nature lover. Jacques had all the recovery equipment and expertise that could be needed if anything went wrong so that this was an experience that could be enjoyed with very low risk.

To say it straight away: even if you are an experienced off-road-driver, in a Land Cruiser the risk of getting stuck is very high (after having tackled the first small dune in first(!) gear!). Else, Red Dune Safaris with our guide JP provided a highly enjoyable tour to Sandwich Harbour, told us plenty of interesting facts about the region and even expanded the tour to a nice viewpoint of the Skeleton Coast.
