Discover the unique denizens of the world's oldest desert during this half-day, off-road adventure in the Namib Desert.
Depart the pier via off-road vehicle for the 45-minute drive to the Namib Desert. Upon arrival, your guide will lead you through this desolate landscape in search of indigenous desert species, and explain how they adapt to their environment. Along the way, stops will be made to view the nocturnal White Lady spider, elusive Palmato gecko, a nocturnal reptile with transparent skin, desert sidewinder, sand-diving Aporasaura lizard, fish moth, and endangered Damara tern.
After a short stop at Amphi's Dune, your exhilarating off-road trek on the roaring dunes will continue on with a visit to the Horse's Graveyard, a World War I site.
Your tour will conclude with a stop at Sundowner Dune. Here, you will take in spectacular views over the Atlantic Ocean, and be served orange juice and salty snacks.
Following your tour, you will re-board your coach for the 45-minute return drive to the pier along the coastal road.
