Uwe was the best guide. The tour is so informative and no rushing which I liked the most. Stop as many times as you want when you see something you would like to capture with your camera or just your eyes. We saw many animals and most of all saw the amazing site of ocean and dune meeting. WHAT A SPECTACULAR SITE. I highly recommend the tour with Uwe!

Visited Swakopmund recently and booked a tour with Uwe from Desert Dunes & Dust tours. What a fantastic experience from beginning to end. Uwe's knowledge of the area was fantastic. A character of note with a great sense of humour. He and 'Everlasting' his 4x4 which we dubbed the Green Mamba took us on a fantastic tour and we had much fun going up and down the incredible Dunes at Sandwich Harbour. A day I will certainly remember for a long time to come. Highly recommend this tour with Uwe.

Awesome doesn't do it justice. I had a fabulous, exhilirating experience. The dunes and the sea are spectacularly beautiful and Uwe is a real treat. I was incredibly lucky that I went during the pandemic when there was almost no one else around, but I can imagine even in normal times the tour would be the best. The views were incredible,and driving up and down the dunes was better than any rollercoaster. Plus Uwe's explanations and stories were icing on the cake. Just Do It!!

We spent a fabulous day with Uwe and had so much fun and can only recommend this tour and guide 😊 Uwe took us on an adventure through the dunes and one got immediately caught by the good humor, and appreciation for the unique landscape. Beyond the dune driving experience we also learnt about wildlife in the desert in this unique area between dunes and ocean. We would love to repeat this trip one day as it was simply unforgettable. Thank you, Uwe, for the extra time taken and stay well! Franziska

An early start and a drive to the base of Pelican Point Kayaking. We met our guide and the rest of our group there. The drive to beach includes a drive through the salt pans and our guide gave us some background on the area. The pans are beautiful and were one of the reasons we chose Namibia as a holiday destination. We brought waterproof jackets with us as advised and you’ll be glad you did as you will get a little wet out there. You’ll get changed into some waterproofs and be given a life vest. I’m not the happiest of people on or in the water but the whole setup is designed to make you feel relaxed and excited about getting onto the water. When you are out there the seals are super friendly and inquisitive. They’ll come over for a closer look and a bite of your paddle! You’ll spend an hour or so on the water and then come back to land for a bite to eat. Seeing all the seals together on the beach is pretty cool and looks very much like the documentaries you might watch. On the drive back to the base loads of animals were pointed out to us and we drove a little off road to get a closer look at some of them. Fantastic first morning of our trip and I’m so glad that we did it!
