DescriptionYour guide will meet you at your accommodation in Walvis Bay at 08:00. After a quick briefing about the day's activities, you'll get into a 4x4 vehicle and depart to your first stop, Dune 7. This is the highest dune in the area at 132 meters. It is well worth climbing for the remarkable view. Depart to the Moon landscape, an extremely arid area with Damara Granites that was pushed through the earth's crust some 500 million years ago. After stopping for photos, head to the Goanikontes Oasis, once a trade route and now a favorite place to relax with family and have some refreshments. After a quick stop, head towards the Welwitchia plains where you'll set up lunch. Lunch usually includes finger snacks, sparking wine, and various beverages. Afterwards, take a scenic route back to your accommodation.
