Wedged between the sea and the Namib Dunes, Sandwich Harbour is one of Southern Africa’s richest and unique wetlands. The extensive mudflats are a wildlife lover’s dream due to the concentration for migratory shorebirds, waders and flamingos.

Pause briefly en route at the Walvis Bay Lagoon to photograph the masses of flamingos and other birds that inhabit one of the biggest natural wetlands in the Southern Hemisphere.

On the approach to Sandwich Harbour you’ll be greeted with the sight of giant sand dunes running straight into the ocean. These giant dunes must be crossed to reach Sandwich Harbour so hold on tight as your experienced driver/guide steers you over the dunes on a thrilling ride.

Have your camera ready as you explore the unique landscape which is just waiting to be discovered. Afterwards your driver/guide will find a suitable place to stop to allow you to enjoy a refreshing a glass of sparkling wine or soft drink refreshment.

The return journey is certainly not for the faint-hearted. It will really test the power of your 4x4 vehicle against the dunes, with a 130-foot-high Roaring Dune being the main challenge.
