      Amazing!!! We really enjoyed the entire trip from the beginning to the end. JP is very knowledgeable and very good storyteller. He told us interesting stories about the Namib nature, people and history. He has excellent driving skills. We were amazed how he maneuvered on beach and was „sliding” on dunes. He is has nice personality and friendly to chat. Definitely the whole experience was FUN. We really recommend this trip and JP as a guide. Thank you JP.

      Where the desert meets the ocean.....
      We booked a combined tour through this company, that included a sea trip on a catamaran and a 4*4 jeep ride to Sandwich Harbor. It was a great tour, we really enjoyed it! On our first trip on the catamaran we saw seals and pelicans, we took many beautiful photos and videos with them. They also gave us a sumptuous lunch with champagne and oysters.On the second trip we had an excellent guide, JP Coch personally, a smart and cheerful young man who told us a lot and showed us a lot, took beautiful photos and videos for us. We rode a jeep up and down the dunes, it was very exciting, then we climbed to the highest point of the dunes, from where we had simply stunning views. It is impossible to convey these feelings in words, it needs to be seen and felt. When you sit on the highest point among the majestic dunes and look at the endless ocean, and in the distance the surrounding world melts into a light haze.... You can look at it endlessly. It's an eternity.,,,, Thank you very much to Red Dune Safaris and personally to JP Coch for an unforgettable experience! Namibia will forever remain in our hearts as one of the most beautiful countries, with kind and friendly people. I highly recommend this tour!

      Amazing ocean and desert combo tour
      The tour was absolutely incredibile, one of the best activity we did in Namibia. The boat tour was very well done, we saw a lot of sea animals including whales (we were very lucky) and the crew was very friendly and professional, gave a lot of info about the ocean animals and offered us a great lunch on board. In the afternoon we did the 4x4 drive in the dunes till Sandwich Harbour including a visit to the lagoon of Walvis Bay where you can see a lot of pelicans and also the salt refinery. The ride in the dunes where the Namib desert meets the Atlantic was spectacular and the landscape breathtaking, did not let down our expectations. Our guide JP was the best and we spent a wonderful afternoon together. Absolutely recommended!

      Best part of our Namibian experience
      An amazing experience with JP. He coached us excellently in dune driving and took us to incredibly beautiful places. He even was able to show us the endemic dune geckos!

      Fantastic experience. Highly recommended!
      The ONLY excursion to do in Walvis Bay! JP did an amazing job of guiding us through the dunes to ensure we were safe, but still with the thrill of dune driving. He pointed out lots of interesting facts about the region and natural history. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to get out and explore the gorgeous dune landscape but also have the fun of navigating with your own vehicle. I could not recommend JP and his services more and would recommend his guiding for any of the excursions he offers. We will be back and we will definitely use his services again.

      This was our second tour with Red Dune Safaris. Our ship was late getting into port but JP and Martin still managed to pick us up at the new berth and give us a full tour. The scenery was amazing and we learned a lot about Namibia. Would highly recommend.

      Highly recommend Sandwich Harbour tour with JP and Red Dune Safaris. They are the absolute best around.
      We had an AMAZING tour of Sandwich Harbour and Walvis Bay, all thanks to JP. We are usually a little skeptical about such tours because usually the operators/guides are time-bound and always in a rush to finish the tour at a given time. However, our experience was exactly opposite of it. JP is the best person to do this tour with. He is a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable about the area, super fun, and cherry on the cake - a great photographer too. We enjoyed every single minute of the tour, at our own pace, stopping as many times as we wanted. JP has an eye for spotting the animals on the way. We were also lucky to see some whales playing super close to the shore. JP also arranged a very nice special vegan meal for us at pre-request.

      An incredible experience!
      From the time of the booking till the tour itself, everything was very smooth. We were constantly in communication with JP and all the email enquiries were promptly responded to. We had a wonderful guide (André) who was extremely knowledgable and a great company on the ride. Sandwich Harbour was absolutely amazing, to watch the dunes and ocean together was quite special. Had champagne with delicious snacks overlooking the spectacular landscapes. To do this route, you definitely need someone who knows what they are doing. Would definitely recommend Red Dune Safaris.

      What a memorable day with JP@ Red Dune Safaris!!
      In March 2023, our cruise ship stopped in Walvis Bay. We joined a group of fellow travellers on Red Dune Safaris’ Moon Landscape and Welwitschia tour. It was a wonderful experience. This year, when our cruise ship was rerouted through Walvis Bay, we decided to contact Red Dune Safaris again. JP answered our emails and enquiries promptly; we ended up booking a ‘bespoke’ tour to Sandwich Harbour and Pelican Point. Our private tour with JP turned out to be one of the top 3 highlights of the 2024 Grand World Voyage. JP shares his wealth of knowledge about the Namib-Naukluft National Park in an easy going, interesting manner; his driving skill inspired complete confidence throughout the exhilarating rides across the beach and up/over the dunes. As photographers/videographers, we were thrilled that JP shared our passion; he tailored the tour to accommodate the best lighting conditions and viewpoints. Our day was truly ‘private’ – an amazing achievement in such a busy area. We unequivocally recommend Red Dune Safaris tours.

      Breathtaking scenery with exhilarating 4WD tour.
      This tour did not disappoint , our driver and guide Truter was very informative and flexible to our needs. He was an excellent driver and managed the tall sand dunes and gave us an exciting tour. The views of Sandwich Harbour were breathtaking. The very tasty lunch was top class and topped off with local beer and sparkling wine . We saw wildlife amongst the dunes and the pink flamingos were stunning. Overall a perfect day out to see this stunning landscape.

    The experience was amazing! We divided it in 2 days because when we booked the amazing staff told us that it would have been really hard to reach the harbor in the afternoon due to the weather, and they were totally right! We had the first morning the tour to sandwich harbour and the second day the kayaking. Both amazing experiences, luckily I do not have go suggest only one of them because they are both so stunning in their own different way.
    The guides are super nice and knowledgeable!
    Thank you again for the amazing experience

    We had such an incredible day with JP, exploring the beauty of Sandwich Harbour and Pelican Point. First we Kayaked with Seals which was such a surreal experience. The entire morning was well planned and coordinated and we felt very safe with the guides kayaking with the seals. After a quick hot drink and snack to warm back up (it's surprisingly cool in the mornings!)

    One of our best moment in Namibia.
    Everythhing was perfect and well organized. Jacques and JP were amazing, and we felt more like spending the day with friends, sharing with us their huge knowledge and showing us one of the most breathtaking landscape in Namibia than being in a tour.
    Thank you again, we hope to come back soon!

    This was a fabulous tour split into two halves.

    Kayaking with the seals was amazing - such fun. Waterproof clothing was providesmd which was great as it was a bit cooler than we were expecting.

    Tour was both informative and fun. Snacks after the kayak was well received.

    Seals were really interactive and amazing to see.

    We then transferred over to a very comfortable vehicle expertly driven by JP as we moved onto the Dunes and sandwich habour. Again a very informative and extremely fun tour. JP is an excellent guide, he made sure we got the best views. Lunch and bubbles at the top of the Dunes- perfect. Some fabulous exciting driving was great!

    Vehicle was really comfortable- views were stunning and all in all the tour was 5/5. Very well done and I would thoroughly recommend.

    We booked a day tour combo at last minute and couldn't be happier! The booking was seamless and the owner (JP) made everything possible to accommodate us. The trip was an absolute treat and both our guides (Kevin & Jacques) were incredibly friendly, experienced and knowledgeable. There were plenty of food and drinks. Kayaking surrounded by marine wildlife and driving into the dunes were nothing short but mesmerizing 😊 Thank you again!

    Due to sandstorm, JP contacted us a few days before to split the day tour into two half days. We had our doubts waiting in the blasting sand wind for the seal expedition, tbh I honest I almost canceled on the spot. But wow were we glad we stuck it out. By the time we got to the shore, the wind had subsided and it truly was a unique and magical experience with the seals. It was easy and spontaneous. For some reason the seals picked our kayak to fight over to hitch a ride.

    The Sandwich Harbour tour was also amazing for different reasons. The scenery was stunning, pictures barely scratch the surface. JP was like a friend showing us his home. We even heard other groups ask their guides for what JP was giving us.

    This is a small family business, which we didn't know beforehand but we were glad after seeing the motorcades of larger groups. Happy to support! Great communication, very personal. We had some good laughs. All involved were very environmentally conscious, even stopping to get fishing line away from seals.

    Everyone: Show up on time! There are people waiting. Our time is just as valuable as yours!

    This guided day was one of the best days of ours in Namibia.
    Both guides (unfortunately I can't remember their names) were pleasant, funny and very interesting in our tour.
    And how could you forget seals and dunes,ever?
    If I come to Namibia again sometime I will certainly repeat this experience.
    Thank you.

    Altough we encountered a booking issue (tour booked in adance but no place for us in the car...) the team did their best for us so we had a lifetime experience. Kayaking is a must and nobody should come to Walvis Bay without trying it. We thought that the rest of the day wasn't worth, it was a mistake. Sandwich Harbour is an incredible place you access after a 4X4 ride on the sand, along the shore. It has a look of edge of the world, you won't be completely alone because every sensed mind tourist will go there, but what a feeling. Warm welcome, strong will to make us a good day and nice lunch at the bottom of the dune, that's the recipe for an incredible day. So, just make sure your booking is well done and just trust Red Dunes Safari.
