Sandwich Harbour Tours



Unspoiled Haven

A 50km scenic 4×4 drive takes you to one of the most photogenic places in Namibia. A place with red beaches and waves running up dunes depending on the tide. On windy days, the sand plays patterns on the dunes and during late afternoons the shadows change it to one of the seven natural wonders on earth. Sandwich Harbour is a natural bay that has awed and inspired many a visitor and traveller. With its rolling dunes falling into the ocean and the large lagoon, this unspoiled bay is a haven for birds and marine life, while creating the most amazing feeling of grandeur and beauty in such a stark environment.

The bay also has a very interesting history when Namibia was still known as South-West Africa and a German Colony, but that we will share with you when you join us on a visit to Sandwhich Harbour. Enjoy lunch with a glass of wine or an ice cold beer on top of a dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The secret is peace, tranquillity and timelessness.

What to see on the route:

We depart from the Photo Ventures office at 8h30 and our first stop is the Walvis Bay Lagoon, a Ramsar site with an abundance of bird life, known for its big population of Flamingos. Your guide will point out the different birds. From there we depart to the top of a dune overlooking the salt mine… colours, colours and more colours!!! After our stop we drive through the Kuiseb Delta, a dry river covered with hardy desert vegetation changing to open salt pans until we reach the Namib Naukluft Park border, our first interdiction to the Atlantic Ocean. From here we stick to the beach and stop at all interesting sightings, fishermen, birds, shells, seals and many more.

As we continue driving, the dunes reach closer to the ocean creating an experience of a lifetime. DUNE DRIVING - Up to 45m!

Other interesting sights:

  • Ample Bird life and if lucky the Dune Lark
  • Black-back Jackal
  • Springbuck
  • Ostrich
  • And a variety of desert adapted plants
