    Absolute amazing tour to beautiful Spitzkoppe mountains! We had a great day with our guide JP from the Red Dune Safaris. JP was very welcoming, funny and friendly guide. Great driver too. He took us to different interesting places along the way, shared his knowledge and made great conversation. Everything was greatly planned and yet relaxed. We would definitely recommend his services.

What people are saying about Erongo

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!

A great day trip with kayaking in the lagoon around Pelican Point in the morning. We were very close to the young seals. Unfortunately, dolphins or whales were not seen. A special highlight in the afternoon was the tour to Sandwich Harbor with our guide JP. He drove us up and down the dunes, dug out a gecko and explained a lot about the flora and fauna in the dune landscape. His lunch was perfectly homemade by his wife. A glass of sparkling wine in the dunes was the crowning glory. I can only recommend this tour.
