Full description

Enjoy an evening trip to capture the beautiful sunset of Sandwich Harbor. Drive along the beach, experience the unique wetland atmosphere, and feast on snacks and drinks after you have taken your pictures.

Depart from Walvis Waterfront at 4:00 PM. Sit back and enjoy the journey as you are driven to the Kuiseb River Delta, a dry riverbed where you may spot the odd springbok, oryx, or jackal.

Next, if the weather and tide allow, experience a drive to the Sandwich Harbour Lagoon along the beach. This is one of Southern Africa’s richest and most unique wetlands and one of five internationally recognized Ramsar sites in Namibia

Enjoy plenty of time for photography in the beautiful late afternoon light. Explore your photographic creativity with the sun slowly setting, then bury your feet in the sand and watch the sunset over the ocean.

When the sun has set and the light has diminished, feast on a selection of fresh Namibian oysters and snacks with sparkling wine, Namibian beers, and cool drinks. Take in the views from the dunes or the beach, before returning at 8:00 PM.

The tour was more than worth it. We were a family of three alone with our guide, who spoke German, explained everything very well, we learned a lot of new things. We stopped at the flamingo lagoon, at the pink salt flats, saw springbok and a coyote that had just bagged a seal. Then to the fantastic landscape of Sandwich Harbour, across the dunes, unique views of the dune sea and the coast. At sunset we enjoyed sparkling wine, oysters and fine snacks. So far our best evening in Namibia!

We did really enjoy this tour. We got the chance to see jaw dropping landscapes in one of the most remote part of the globe. Our guide was such a great expert and drove into the dunes gently. We had fun and enjoyed also a good aperitivo with Prosecco and Namibian oysters which are a must and needs a try! I really encourage you guys to reserve 4/5 hours of your trip in Namibia and take part to this activity as you won’t regret it.

Die Tour mit dem 4x4 in den Sonnenuntergang war super. Unser Fahrer Maik war super sympatisch und konnte uns viel interessantes Wissen über die Region und Kultur vermitteln. Die Fahrt in den Dünen hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht und die Tiere die wir sehen konnten waren spannend zu beoachten. Der Sonnenuntergang war zwar nicht direkt zu sehen, dafür wurde der Abend mit einem kleinen "Picknick" in der Nähe von Flamingos gekrönt. Ich kann die Tour nur weiterempfehlen.
