Tour description provided by Viator

This living desert tour is a extraordinary exploration of the coastal dune belt just outside Swakopmund. To the untrained eye the dunes are just a pile of sand, however your skilled and experienced guides will introduce you to a wealth of life. Track Palmato Geckos, sand-diving lizards, the famous fog-basking tok-tokkie beetle, sidewinder snakes, spiders, scorpions, and chameleons. This 3-hour exploration will be rounded out with a short dune drive.
Your tour begins with a morning pick up from your hotel by your experienced guide. You will then be taken to see the many creatures that call the desert their home. This half-day option offers you the chance of seeing and experiencing the dunes in the morning, then having the afternoon free to explore Swakopmund on your own. Immediately at the edge of Swakopmund, you will enter a restricted area with special permission, and begin the search for all things living, most of which are nocturnal and hidden under the desert sand during the day. Without your guides, you probably wouldn't be able to spot a lot of them. However, they use their skills to locate and show these little creatures to you, offering you an experience you won't soon forget.
