Half Day Living Desert Holiday :
This half-day tour departs from Swakopmund at 08h00 and lasts 4 - 5 hours. The tour concentrates on exploring the local dune belt between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund. Special care is taken not to damage the gravel plains and cause unnecessary damage to the dune eco system. Your guide will stop continuously to look for tracks (know locally as reading the bushman newspaper), to determine which animals were active the previous night and wherever possible will try to catch some of them to show you. Great care is taken in sharing knowledge with you on each desert animal and plant, including emphasis on special adaptations and perfect design used for survival in the desert.
Sandboarding - Lie- down :
No experience necessary. The sandboarder lies on their stomach shooting head first down the dune. After a brief instruction period we head up the dune for our first ride which we call Little Nellie. This ride makes a gentle arc down the dune and introduces the boarder to the feel of the rides and gives them practice in steering and stopping the board. From there we move to the second "training" ride called the Birgit Run. This ride is longer, steeper and faster than the first. Lizzie is the first of the real rides and the third ride on the dune. The boarder is now confident with reaching speeds up to 60 kph (37 mph).
