Möwe Bay excursion 

The dangerous beauty of Skeleton Coast
Either on your way to the lodge from Möwe Bay or returning from the lodge, you will see what is left of the victims of this treacherous coastline: Decaying ships, the remains of a Ventura Bomber and the abandoned Westies Diamond Mine bear witness to the unforgiving nature of this arid landscape. You will also visit the seal colony.

4x4 Hoarusib River excursion

Follow the river… Spend your morning exploring the Hoarusib River. Visit the Clay Castles, a
striking geological formation. You might even spot some of the elusive desert-adapted elephants, brown hyenas and lions.

Seaside lunch
Weather permitting, enjoy a scrumptious lunch on the vast empty beach.
Feel the crisp sea-breeze tousle your hair and ponder the meaning of life
as the ocean washes onto the pristine sand in its unending ebb and flow.

Sundowner Drive

The music of the Namib
Embark on a sundowner drive to the Roaring Dunes where the desert’s voice can be heard.
Or watch the sun disappear into the Atlantic Ocean.

Join one of our guides on a scenic drive over the Roaring Dunes and into the valley. This excursion will only be conducted in an area specifically allocated for the purpose by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism to minimise the effects on the environment.
The tour takes approximately 1.5 hours and is for one guest per quad. As a safety precaution the minimum age is 16 years.

Guided walk

Explore the Skeleton Coast on foot by joining our knowledgeable guides on a guided walk to the ocean. Take note of the different animal footprints and the vegetation and relish the crisp Atlantic breeze.

Climbing the dunes of the oldest desert in the world is a wonderful experience on its own. Enjoy the thrill of sliding down on a sandboard and be rewarded with refreshments.
