The original Living Desert/Little 5 Tour! 08h00 to 13h30 from Swakopmund in our 4x4's: we go into the dune/gravel plains area to track the little creatures - snakes, chameleons, geckoes, lizards, scorpions, insects, etc - and also give info on the desert in general, the area's plants and minerals. Dune drive through to the sea. Scenic and educational.

I thought that this would be just a 4x4 jeep sand dune expedition - but it was much more! Our two guides were fabulous; experts at finding hidden animals and increasing our knowledge. Glad I did not miss this 'adventure'!!

Fantastic half day trip into the desert and dunes around Swakopmund. Tommy and Jürgen were excellent and kept the whole family entertained. Brilliant for young and old - highly recommended!

It's a MUST SEE. Very professional tourguides. Information and fun for young and old. Without the tour I never would imagine how much life is around inthr dunes.

We observed and learned about far more desert animals than expected. The fascinating chameleon, the spectacular palmetto gecko, the intimidating large black scorpion, several species of snakes and beetles. Tommy and Evan are knowledgeable, fun and engaging. Spectacular scenery and pleasant temperatures made it a...More

The tours are about 4 hours, and while you are 4-wheeling in the desert, it wasn't that bumpy or anything. I was a little skeptical, thinking sand dunes would be boring, but Tommy and his crew really bring "the living... More

I know Tommy does collect his guests from any hotel / guest house in Swakopmund. However the only cruise ship port might be in Walvisbay. I'm not sure if he collects from Walvisbay. If however you fill the vehicle as a group... More
