Driving over the dunes and seeing the mini five animals was really interesting. Above expectations. The guides were informative, relaxed and fun! You would not believe how many different species exists in the dessert. The views are also great for those who like to take pictures.

Our living Desert Adventure was one of the best half day tours we have ever been on. Our guide was very informative, and knew his stuff well. We cannot speak highly enough of this activity.

A fantastic tour, with such a knowledgeable and entertaining guide, Chris. We had a wishlist in our heads of what we hoped to see, and we weren't disappointed.

You learn a lot about the desert and the little creatures, which live here. And the guide, Chris Nel, is the best guide, we ever had! He and his helpers find animals, you would never find alone, and you discover the "little 5" of the Namib Desert. The best tour ever! You will be thrilled!

This tour is an absolute must when you visit this area. We booked the tour through Carleys and had Nic as a tour guide whilst Johnny and Ernest looked out for the living creatures! They all did their utmost to make the tour interesting and find the inhabitants of the desert we were after! Nic spoke in a very understandable... More

To explore Swakopmund one need about 10 days, but we tried our best to see it all in 4 days. We went on numerous desert adventures and were astonished by the humor and knowledge of the guides.

This is an awesome tour. It is amazing what you will see that you never would have suspected was in the sand. Our 2 year old did great as well.
