Description

Start your adventure at the Walvis bay lagoon flamingo villas hotel or at the harbor gate when traveling with the cruise liner. Meet your guide at the Walvis Bay Waterfront, and admire the mass of flamingoes in the lagoon. Travel by 4x4 as you head out to a tidal lagoon consisting of adjacent intertidal areas, mudflats, and sandbars that supports thousands of wetland birds. In addition to the many flamingoes, there are 11 species of endangered birds regularly observed at this RAMSAR site. Look for some of the area’s smaller creatures, such as the Fog-Basking beetle, Dancing Spider (white lady of the Namib), Golden Mole, Shovel-Snouted Lizard, and Palmetto Gecko. If weather and tides allow, you'll drive along the beach right to the Sandwich Harbour Lagoon, one of Southern Africa’s richest wetlands and the second RAMSAR site for the day. Wedged between the sea and the Namib Dunes, this UNESCO world heritage site is one of Namibia's most important coastal wetlands and supports eight endangered species among the large numbers of wading birds. Enjoy a light lunch and drinks atop a high dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean or on the beach. When driving back you might be lucky and find some springbuck Oryx, Black-backed jackal and Ostrich. Finish your day with a drop-off back at your original meeting point.
