A well-organized tour with punctual pick-up from the cruise terminal and timely return to the ship, so that you don't have to worry about missing the ship. The day before you will also be contacted again by e-mail and the pick-up will be confirmed. It is particularly gratifying that the tours are carried out at a much lower price than the boat excursions.

We were all alone with Chris. It was an incredibly beautiful tour and we were able to learn more about Namibia, the desert, animals and culture and of course what we booked. Mega rides through the dunes and sandboarding was awesome too! Thank you for this great experience! Gladly again!
