The day starts leasurely at 09h00 with a southern Atlantic sailing dolphin and seal cruise in search of the Marine Big 5.  We return to the Waterfront at about 12h30, where your guide will meet you for your afternoon Sandwich Harbour excursion.  

We take a short break at the Walvis Bay Lagoon to experience a flamboyance of flamingos and a wreck of coastal birds that reside in and around the lagoon at different times of the year.  The drive takes us to the Kuiseb river delta, a dry riverbed where the odd springbok, oryx or jackal may be spotted.  As this area forms part of our exclusive Kuiseb Delta Concession, we are the only activity operator allowed to access this area.  

Depending on the tides and the swell, we may reach the Sandwich Harbour Lagoon along the beach, one of Southern Africa’s richest and unique wetlands and also one of Namibia’s five Ramsar sites.  Alternatively, we will take an exciting dune ride to our lookout dune to get a scenic aerial view of the Sandwich Harbour Lagoon.  

We have lots of time to stop for photography and enjoy our world famous oysters paired with sparkling wine; savoury snacks, Namibian beer and cooldrinks. We do this on top of a high dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, on the beach, or amongst the dunes.  The route homeward will take us past the area’s typical fauna and flora, including the endemic !Nara plant.  

We return to Walvis Bay at 16h30.
