Took this day trip while in Swakupmund. Takes in an informative drive through Walvis Bay and the Salt extraction processes, followed by a run along the beach in a 4x4 as the tide rose. Very exciting, followed by drives down steep dune slopes and an...More

We were lucky to have a great sunny and warm day for this tour, and low tide. I think what I appreciated most, apart from seeing the dramatic scenery of ocean meeting high desert dunes is having the opportunity to get some background on local...More

An interesting day out, helped I believe by having Johann van Zyl as out guide - although the elderly Freelander has drawn some mildly critical comment elsewhere. Probably is time Johann did bite the bullet and pension the old thing off. We were five up...More

On August 24th, three of us were picked up by Johan from the Strand Hotel. Everything went very well until we reached the narrow pass between the dunes and the ocean that we must take to reach the Sandwich Lagoon. Johan told us that the...More

Few days ago we did the daily trip to Sandwich Harbour and Walvisbaai with our guide Johan Van Zyl. What a trip! We cannot recommend it enough! Johan was not only extremely nice and enjoyable but absolutely knowledgeable of Swakop, the surroundings and the whole...More

This was unfortunately not at all what we hoped it would be. This was the biggest excursion of our trip due to the price and it was so lackluster. We unfortunately did not have a guide that normally works with Turnstone Tours so not only...More
