Living Desert Tour with Thommy

This Living Desert Tour is a memorable 4x4 adventure drive through the dunes outside Swakopmund. Search for life in this apparently barren landscape, such as: Sidewinders, Palmato Geckoes, Namaqua Chameleons, Fitzsimons Burrowing Skinks, Sand-Diving Lizards, Scorpions, etc.

You will be informed about the plant-life, insects and minerals as well you will experience a 'roaring' dune. The scenic drive through the dunes takes you from the life-rich eastern side through to the Atlantic Ocean on the west. Eco-aware, informative and fun, and kids are welcome.

Plenty to see, experiences and photography moments!
