    The prices on Viator/TripAdvisor currently is for two people. We offer MUCH cheaper per person prices for 4 person or larger groups, beating even shared experience operators, check it out!

    This is a true adventure! With us you will explore the desert all the way up to the very remote Welwitchia Miriabilis plants. 

    Along the way from Walvis Bay you will see a little bit of Dune 7 while we stop there. You are welcome to climb the dune and experience the sand for yourself. We provide cool bottled water at this activity. 

    From Dune 7 we will be traveling between the coastal dune belt and the gravel plains of the desert up towards the Swakopmund river. Nearby the Swakop river, we will turn and drive over the gravel plains to the lookout over the Moon Landscape. While we are traveling over the plains, we will stop and explore the special plants that have adapted to live in this climate. Of special interest here is the Lichen growing on rocks, as well as the two common types of brush. 

    The spectacular Swakop river canyon is better known as the Moon Landscape. We will stop for photographs and to take in the many earthy colors and texture of this magical place, before a slow drive into the canyon to view the rock formations up close. 

    In the bed of the Swakop river is the Goanikontes oasis, where we will stop for coffe or other refreshments, as well as use the excellent toilet facilities if we need to. The oasis is well appointed, clean and has a very nice atmosphere. There are farm animals roaming free, and some more in cages, as well as a lake filled with tilapia.

    From the Oasis we will explore the road that was used to shoot Mad Max – Fury road, as well as some tracks used in other series productions. This track puts us back in the river bed where we drive 20km along the riverbed. The rock formations here vary greatly in color and shape, and is a geologist’s dream! With a bit of luck we will also see some wild animals, with ostrich being the most common. 

    There is another road crossing the Swakop canyon on it’s way to the Welwitchia plains, and once we reach it, we follow it. 

    There is quite a bit of information on the Welwitchia at the designated parking area. It is amazing how this plant has survived, and the adaptations it has to survive in it’s harsh surroundings. 

    On our way back to Swakopmund we will stop for some refreshments at camping spots in the riverbed. 

    We have a quick drive through Swakopmund, with our road detouring enough to show you the Mole, Jetty and some of the buildings from the 1900’s. 

    The last treat on this tour is the coastal road between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. The Dune belt and the ocean meet for some spectacular views.

    Bring your camera.
