5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

We felt very privileged to have been able to see these amazing plants! `The scenery was absolutely stunning and well worth the dirt road drive!

“In the desert, only one hour away from the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

There was fog in Swakopmund, whereas it was sunny on our trip to the Welitschia Plains. Notice that the landscape varies widely: sandy plain, a green canyon, rocky mountains at the horizon, etc.
