Walvis Bay: Marine Big 5 Luxury Catamaran Tour
- Duration: 3.5 hours
We had a morning trip with Len in his Mitsubishi 4x4 van (3L V6). Comfortable and capable. Len was very knowledgeable and was easy to chat to. We headed south through the Salt Works (permission granted to the tour) with an explanation on how it is all produced. Across the marshy area with the long grass and into the lower sand dunes. Stopped at his favourite spot for viewing pink flamingoes. Brilliant colours offset against the blue water of the ponds and the green vegetation surrounding coupled with the sand as a background. Further along we started to climb into the big dunes. Racing up and down for quite a while to reach the viewing spot for Sandwich Harbour. Bubbly, fresh oysters, game snacks and soft drinks all laid out on a table in style for a late morning brunch. It was then up and down over some steep dune edges which was quite exhilarating. Back to Walvis Bay harbour jetty. All up 4 hours. Very well worth it for the variety and general entertainment. Strongly recommend.
Wonderful tour to Spitzkoppe with JP Koch of Red Dunes Safaris on 21st November. Promptly picking us up from our guesthouse in Swakopmund, JP was extremely courteous and attentive, providing an informative unhurried service throughout and proved great company for my husband and I as we learnt more about life in Namibia whilst being shown some interesting and amazing places en route to Spitzkoppe that we simply would not have seen without him. The full day out amongst the most wonderful scenery neared conclusion with a exquisite savoury and sweet spread accompanied by a bottle (for us!) of fizz in a spectacular setting. Marvellous. Thank you JP!
It was a fantastic five hours that took one into a journey to a place so unique and unspoilt that you could totally forget about everything else. Amazing scenes of saltpans, towering sand dunes, moon landscapes and of course, the icy cold sea. We had a great guide that was knowledgeable, courteous and experienced.
Left a bit later than scheduled but this was to be expected as they waited for ALL who booked. Tour guide was knowledgeable of all aspects and could answer all questions posted. Food and beverages supplied on the catamaran excersion was top notch.
Quad biking has been on my bucket list for as long I can remember. Although it’s finally ticked off, I’d do it over and over again. That’s how much fun, exciting and thrilling the experience was for me. Highly recommended - a must do activity.
