Kayak & Sandwich Harbour Combo

Walvis Bay / Swakopmund | Namibia

This day trip allows you to combine two of the most popular activities available at the Namibian coast: Kayaking on the Walvis Bay Lagoon and a 4x4 excursion to Sandwich Harbour.

Kayaking Tour:

You will be transported from Walvis Bay to Pelican Point at 07h45. Your morning is spent kayaking amongst the Cape fur seals. These loveable but rather smelly creatures often approach playfully jumping out of the water or attempting to nibble your paddle. Dolphins also enjoy company and from July to November whales enter these waters. (more about Kayaking in Walvis Bay)

Sandwich Harbour Excursion:

At 11h30 a 4x4 and guide will transport you to Sandwich Harbour, where the desert meets the ocean. Experience the exciting Walvis Bay Lagoon area, saltpans and the Kuiseb River Delta on your way to the haunting landscape and beauty of Sandwich Harbour. This is an ideal expedition for serious birders as well, the vegetation around the lagoon hosts the famous endemic dune lark and various raptor species. Expect to spot up to 50 different species of birds on a good day. Return to Walvis Bay by 16h30. Lunch, drinks and permits are included in your trip.
