Sandwich is only accessible with a good 4 wheel drive vehicle and a fully qualified driver who has lots of experience of the dunes.

Clients have the option to do a 6 hour tour with a 4x4 vehicle and enjoy a light lunch with sparkling wine and oysters between the dunes or on the beach.
Or they can do a combination (COMBO) of our famous dolphin cruise and Sandwich Harbour tour which is approx. 8 hours. Lunch is served on the boat or in the desert.

Both these tours depart approx. 9h00 in the morning from our jetty in the Walvis Bay yacht club area, but we sometimes change departure times to allow for the right tide to enter Sandwich Harbour.

The Sandwich Harbour tour starts in Walvis Bay with a visit to the flamingos in the lagoon and a stop on the dunes at the Salt Works, to see where the salt comes from that melts the snow in Europe!

From there we drive through the Kuiseb Delta where the sight of a Springbok or two is not uncommon and over the salt plains to the Namib Naukluft Park border. Once inside, we drive on the beach to Sandwich Harbour.

At Sandwich Harbour lagoon we stop so our clients can take a stroll alongside the lagoon for photos of the birds and beautiful nature scenes.

On our way back we visit a viewpoint on the dunes to look down on the lagoon, from where we drive for approx. 6km through the dunes back to the border.
On this route we stop at places where animals dig for fresh water and slide down dunes to listen to the roaring sand.

Sandwich Harbour used to have small fresh water lagoons as well, but that unfortunately is busy disappearing under the moving dunes.
