The original Living Desert/Little 5 Tour! 08h00 to 13h30 from Swakopmund in our 4x4's: we go into the dune/gravel plains area to track the little creatures - snakes, chameleons, geckoes, lizards, scorpions, insects, etc - and also give info on the desert in general, the area's plants and minerals. Dune drive through to the sea. Scenic and educational.

I thought that this would be just a 4x4 jeep sand dune expedition - but it was much more! Our two guides were fabulous; experts at finding hidden animals and increasing our knowledge. Glad I did not miss this 'adventure'!!
