After meeting your guide and before heading to Sandwich Harbour for your half-day experience in the dunes, a stop will be made at the Walvis Bay Lagoon to admire the flamingos and occasionally a great white pelican passing by. Leaving the flamingos behind, head to the salt works where you'll then proceed to the Sandwich Harbour wedging between the sea and dunes if tides allow; if tides forbid, surf the dunes up to the many convenient lookout spots. Then explore the Sandwich Harbour Lagoon, one of Southern Africa’s richest and most unique wetlands. Walk around Sandwich Harbour and climb some dunes, and don't forget to some action photos along the way. Finally, enjoy a light picnic lunch with some cold beverages with a natural desert backdrop, then hit the dunes for some more excitement before concluding your adventure to the Kuiseb River Delta, a dry riverbed where you can occasionally see springbok, oryx, or even ostrich.
