Sandwich Harbour Day Trip, Namibia

Sandwich Harbour lies around 30 kilometres south of Walvis Bay. Here, there's a reed lined lagoon fed by freshwater springs, a sandy beach and pale dunes dropping straight into the sea. The lagoon is a haven for many birds such as pelicans, flamingos, sandpipers and dabchicks. It's not uncommon to find jackal trotting along the beach or see dolphins offshore.

During the morning, the trip will work its way slowly down the coastline towards Sandwich from Swakopmund. Stop to watch birds, learn about the history of the area, walk along the beach and take photographs. On arrival at Sandwich, there'll be a superb picnic lunch - often eaten on top of a sand dune. Depending on the tides you may then walk along the coast, slide down roaring dunes or visit the sights of Totnar settlements. The guide will tailor the day to your interests. Making your way back up to Swakopmund you wll arrive home at about five or six.
