Full description
Discover how the ancient Namib is home to more endemic species than any other desert in the world. This living desert tour is an extraordinary exploration of the coastal dune belt just outside Swakopmund. To the untrained eye, the dunes are just a pile of sand, however, your skilled and experienced guides will introduce you to a wealth of life. Track Palmato Geckos, sand-diving lizards, the famous fog-basking tok-tokkie beetle, sidewinder snakes, spiders, scorpions, and chameleons. This 3-hour exploration will be rounded out with a short dune drive. Meet your driver at your hotel in Swakopmund and then travel into the coastal dune belt that’s just beyond the city limits. Spot some of the natural highlights of the desert landscape as you drive into the dunes, but many of the desert’s most fascinating sights require a trained eye and a firsthand look. Learn about the fascinating animals that thrive in Namibia's arid landscape; search for creatures that crawl, slither, and hop across the sand; and find out how to identify the subtle tracks they leave. Following the wildlife portion of this Swakopmund dunes tour, pick up some speed on a dunes drive, and finish with return transfer to your hotel.
