Shore Excursions

These day trips are especially designed for passengers of cruise ships. We understand through many years of experience that timings are different to scheduled tours, that timings can change on very short notice and that trips often need to be on a private basis. So these day trips below include pick up/ drop off at the pier in Walvis Bay and habour permits for our vehicles.

Living Namib and Colonial Settlements:

From the pier we do a short trip past the famous Walvis Bay Lagoon to see if we can spot some flamingos for which this area is so well known for. Keep in mind that these are migrating birds, and certain times of the year most of these magnificent birds may not be here.
We will explore the dunes more intimately once we go off road into the dune belt. To the untrained eye the dunes are just a pile of sand, however our skilled and experienced guides will introduce you to a wealth of life. Track palmato geckos, sanddiving lizards, and the famous fog-basking Tok-Tokkie beetle, sidewinder snakes, spiders, scorpions and chameleons. This 3 hour exploration will be rounded off with a short rollercoaster dune drive through magnificent dune landscapes.
Back from the dunes your guide will take you to one of the local restaurants or cafés so that you can refresh and reflect. Lunch is your choice as it is not included in the tour price.

A private Crayfish lunch on the beach can be booked for groups of 4 guests and more at an additional cost of N$ 990.00 per person.
After lunch we will do a short orientation tour of the coastal town of Swakopmund, known for its German colonial buildings and clean and colourful suburbs, before it is time to take the scenic coastal road back to the ship.

Local Info Tour

From the pier we do a short trip past the famous Walvis Bay Lagoon to see if we can spot some flamingos for which this area is so well known for. Keeping in mind these are migrating birds, and certain times of the year most of these magnificent birds may not be here.
From Walvis Bay we take a short drive to the well known Dune 7 for a short photo stop. The drive on the desert road to Swakopmund is smooth, wedged between the sand dunes and the seemingly endless desert plains. We use this time to talk about the desert, the local economy and other interesting topics. In the German colonial town of Swakopmund we take a orientation tour through the old town centre with it's quite historical buildings. We will also see suburbs of the wealth and the poor to show what life is like.
Depending on time available, we like to give the travelers some time for shopping or browsing or just a cup of coffee to take in the relaxed atmosphere of this beautiful coastal retreat.

A private Crayfish lunch on the beach can be booked for groups of 4 guests and more at an additional cost of N$ 900.00 per person.
