We had a fantastic day in the dunes with Eckard! Excellent driving! Loved the rollercoaster-dune :D! The dunes are mind-blowingly beautiful, and we got detailed explanations about how the Namib desert was formed, how wind and sea keep shaping it every day, the animals there, etc. There was a picknick set up for us at the beach, which was a nice surprise! We ran up and down the dunes, jumped around in the sand and felt like kids in the biggest sandbox :D. In the end we saw the salt works and the Flamingos. And the pelicans (baby) begged for a splash of water. Thanks again for the amazing experience! And thanks to Max for organising! All the best!

We had the most amazing sandwich harbour tour with our guide Ekkehard . The dunes are just breathtaking and the wildlife viewing was epic , we saw black backed jackals , dolphins , seals ostriches to name a few . We even partook In helping a baby hump back whale who had beached himself back into the sea. The half way stop is made even better with snacks and the most beautiful view . Highly suggest this tour operator!!

We French couple living in Berlin had a great time with our guide, driver, cook, actually he is doing everything for your comfort during the Day tour....Eckhardt! In the morning we had the marine tour, could see colony of Seals, the oyster farm, had a big deal on our boat as well as pelicans. We enjoyed our snack with Oysters and many nice food and drinks. Unfortunately we didn't see any whale or Delphine. Due to Covid-19 we were only few in our boat, was perfect for us. The Dune tour in 4/4 drive vehicle was most exiting and active. We enjoyed every second, Eckhardt always explained all, he knows everything there. We can recommend this tour without doubt! Thank you Eckhardt.

I have mixed feelings about this experience, overall. My husband and I went on the dolphin cruise, and due to low tourism because of covid, we had the whole catamaran to ourselves. It was a nice enough boat and had restrooms on board, which was nice. As we took off from the jetty, a large male cape fur seal joined us on board, lured by fish. Later on, another male seal and several pelicans joined us on board, also similarly lured by (and hand fed) fish. While that was a cool experience to have the wild animals so up close and personal, I'm also generally not a fan of messing with nature and feeding (and consequently semi-taming) wild animals, as that causes then to become dependent on humans and can negatively impact their ability to survive on their own. It's also just not a good practice generally. So I appreciated the experience, but not the methods. (For the record, this appeared to be a common practice along several of the cruise operators, so I'm not sure that using a different company would change anything). Otherwise it was an okay cruise. The guide was friendly, interesting, and knowledgeable, and we had no complaints from that perspective. We saw tons of sea lions at pelican point (as expected) and also some heaviside dolphins not far from there. After we saw the dolphins we basically turned around and went back, but it would have been nice if we'd gone out further to search for whales, since the guide said they were definitely in season now and also recently spotted. So that was a little disappointing. Also the captain was smoking cigarettes for a good portion of the cruise, which permeated even to the open-air front of the boat where we were seated, and also made use of the restrooms rather unpleasant as the whole interior reeked of cigarette smoke for a time. So that was another issue. Overall we had a decent time and thought the guide was good, and do appreciate them running a cruise for just the two of us with no other bookings, but due to the other issues mentioned above, I'm not sure we'd do it again.
