My husband and I had the pleasure of accompanying John, the owner of Pelgrim Tours, on a sandwich harbour tour (that we had booked as a combo tour with kayaking at Pelican Point - highly recommended). John was a very enjoyable guide and an absolutely fearless driver. I'd read that you cannot access sandwich harbour at high tide, and it was high tide, but John was not fazed, and instead was able to carefully navigate our vehicle along the coast as the waves came in. He was a very careful and competent driver and we felt confident in his abilities. We also really enjoyed the incredible scenery, and John was always eager to share interesting facts about the area and scenery, and even dug up a Palamato gecko for us to see. The driving up and down the dunes was also a highlight and not for the faint of heart, though I think John may have taken it a little easy on the dunes because I am pregnant. But we had a great time overall and can highly recommend both Pelgrim as well as Sandwich Harbour.

Amazing trip.

With John, born in Namibia many moons ago, as per his words, you will have a real experience how to drive in the dunes. Even by previous reservation you can have lessons how to drive in the dunes.
Out of trail with an experienced John in memorable Toyota 4x4. Digging in the desert till discover water and being sandwiched between the sea and the dunes. Really an amazing trip

Thanks for the experience in our wedding anniversary…also many moons ago.
