About Tommy's Tours and Safaris
The original Living Desert/Little 5 Tour! 08h00 to 13h30 from Swakopmund in our 4x4's: we go into the dune/gravel plains area to track the little creatures - snakes, chameleons, geckoes, lizards, scorpions, insects, etc - and also give info on the desert in general, the area's plants and minerals. Dune drive through to the sea. Scenic and educational.

This was an amazing experience learning to appreciate all the small unseen miracles of nature which the desert has to offer. Chantelle was an excellent guide and she opened our eyes to how fragile and unique this ecosystem is. The kids loved it, especially the interaction with

We did the half day desert tour. There were mostly women in the group. We were all appalled by the constant sexist jokes about women, even a couple of stereotypical blonde ones thrown in. I thought I was listening to Benny Hill in 1960. Just not acceptable. Several of us were

Response from KitCollard, Manager at Tommy's Tours and Safaris
Responded Mar 14, 2020
Hi Stephen Thank you again for your feedback! Again, apologies that you found the experience so unpleasant. In Tommy's defence he is a people-person and certainly does not mean offence; he just loves to make people laugh. Obviously he is doing it the wrong way. He is not sexist and he is not a racist, and the majority of people enjoy the tour, as you will see by the majority of positive reviews, and countless guests come back and ask to be with Tommy specifically 3, 4 , 5 times. I will again draw his attention, but he has mentioned he will be making changes.

A fantastic tour with unique experiences and fascinating facts. Chantelle, the guide, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Logistically, the vehicle arrived punctually, was very clean and there was ample cold drinks and water available. Tour is suitable for groups or

It just looks like a lot of sand but it does not take long to learn to watch your step or you will kill something. The desert is a live with all kinds of creatures and Chantelle obviously loves all of them and wants to share them with you. This excursion is lots of fun, very
