Sandwich Harbour is part of the Namib Naukluft Park, a small lagoon in the south west of Walvis Bay, Dune and Sea meet here to form this land mark attraction.
Our full day tour starts at 10h00 and this is an ultimate tour combination of either cultural and sandwich Harbour or Pelican Point Seal colony and Sandwich Harbour. We meet at our office at the Walvis Bay Waterfront, 1st Floor, Board Walk building.
The lagoons at Walvis Bay and at the Sandwich Harbour are the key points of this tour. This area is a bird sanctuary as it inhabits some 200 000 birds. With tourist’s favourites such as Flamingo, Pelican, avocet, turnstone and a huge variety of waders can easily be seen. November is the perfact bird watching season, with numbers peaking at around 170 000. Several endemic species, such as the Dune Lark and the Damara Tern, are also in the vicinity.
Leaving Walvis Bay behind, we head for the lower reaches of the Kuiseb Delta. This unique ecosystem is dotted with archeological sites, 450 years old animal tracks, wind- blown graves and magnificent dunes. There is evidence of ancient and recent gathering, harvesting and trading by the Topnaar, an indigenous Namibian community descended from the, !Khoi group which relies on the naturally occurring !Nara fruit for survival.
