We can't express how well Chantal, our Living Desert guide from Tommy's Tours and Safaris, radiated her knowledge, enthusiasm and love of the desert. She has amazing eye for detail, spotted the tinyest creatures from a distance, and managed to show us aspects of the deserts we had no idea of. She loves the desert, and judging by the trust...

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.

It was amazing! We could never imagine this is "hidden" in the dunes. A nice trip for young and old. Best wishes Sandy ;)

We recently participated in the Living Desert Adventures tour, which we found to be an informative, educational and particularly enjoyable way to spend a few morning hours during our time in Swakopmund. Our tour was reserved well in advance and included two vans with 8 passengers each and two guides. We were collected from our hotel and dropped off after... More

I wasn't expecting too much from this tour and what a surprise! A very interesting and informative afternoon was spent with Douglas and his crew. They are obviously passionate about the desert and its animals and plants. The things they could find were amazing and then their explanations about everything they showed us were incredible. Turned what I thought was... More

We were surprised that the desert could be accessed so close to Swakopmund. Proper red dunes after a half hour drive. The scenery is breathtaking and the tour was very informative. Our guide found lots of lizards, chameleons, birds and snakes to show the kids. They absolutely loved it - almost as much as running up and down the dunes.... More

Doug and Glen show a passion for the desert that is second to none. They bring it alive with informative discussion and show and tell. They find animals where just a grain of sand is disturbed indicates to them an animal underground. Well worth the 4 hours.

I am a local Swakopmunder who has experienced Chris Nel's Living Desert Adventures tour numerous times with various family members and friends as well as school groups. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Chris is passionate, funny and a true expert in his field. Do not miss the opportunity of a unique desert experience to learn about the flora and... More

The desert tour was great experience and we got the chance to see a gecko, a rabbit, a legless lizard and a spider. We also learnt quite a bit about the environmental impact of quad bikes (summary: they're bad!). The owner and guide Chris is a funny guy, but you have to like his rough humor. He does make fun...

If you don't get to be educated, entertained, and humored by Chris on the Living Desert Adventures tour, then you haven't really experienced the best of the best in Namibia. Chris truly loves the desert flora and fauna. He will have you loving everything about it by the end of your tour. Get ready to see crazy looking spiders, reptiles,... More
