About Tommy's Tours and Safaris
The original Living Desert/Little 5 Tour! 08h00 to 13h00 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 unexpected and most delightful experience. The knowledge of the staff, especially one Chantelle Bosch is exceptional and watching her uncover the secrets of the living desert was a sight to behold. Her enthusiasm and exuberance was infectious and one could not help but be enthralled by her love of the land and it’s little critters. A must see and do for any visitor to this part of the world. I cannot recommend this trip more highly enough.

A highlight of my first time in Namibia... So pleased to have experienced this trip. Tour guide was so knowledgeable and willing to share with us. We were so lucky to see the small creatures living in the dunes.. A trip that will leave an impact on me for the rest of my life...So highly recommended .. If you miss this , its like going to Tanzania , and not going to the Serengeti ,Maldives and not snorkelling, Cape Town and not going up Table Mountain.. It really is a must ,.. It will enrich your life... and make you so appreciative of the smaller things in life.

A very interesting tour. We saw animals and insects we would never have seen ourselves and learnt so much. Our guide Chantelle was knowledgeable and passionate. The scenery was magnificent. The atmosphere was fun as was being driven on tracks through the Massive sand dunes. Picking up litter occasionally seemed entirely appropriate.

The tour allow you to discover several type of smalls animals of the desert, with the explanations of the guide. Even if it 's interesting some parts are too long and we have to wait in the car while the guide is searching some tracks. The price is also expensive in comparison with other type of activities.

Thanks for your review! We are glad that you enjoyed the tour. Unfortunately the animals are wild and needs to be tracked and this can sometimes take some time, but since you come on this tour to discover and learn more about the little animals of the desert our guides will do their utmost best to try and track animals to show to you even if it means you have to wait a little while. This is all part of the fun trying to spot animals in the wild. :-)
