Timely pick-up from Swakopmund hotel; polite staff; marvelous boat trip. The seals, flamingos and white pelicans contrast with the aridity of the surrounding area.

Would not recommend this company due to the man in the silly flat cap who is very rude to visitors. Considering we pay his wages he should be more respectful. So glad we didn’t end up with that ignoramus on the Sandwich Harbour drive.More
