Rising above the flat, grassy plains of Namibia, Spitzkoppe is the place where the San, better known and Bushmen, made their home centuries ago.

On this full day trip into the desert we will stop at various places of interest to break up the journey and showcase the desert.

The desert is a beautiful landscape, and you will see quite a few variations on it, from the dunes to the flat gravel plains of the coast, the Swakop river canyon and the grassy plains before Spitzkoppe rises majestically before you.

The rock art will be explained to you by a local guide with in-depth knowledge. You will also have the opportunity to clamber around the mountains and take pictures of the natural rock arch.

At the end of the tour you will see the fishing holiday town of Henties bay, and the Zeila shipwreck.

Itinerary: This full day tour starts off in Walvis Bay, or Swakopmund if you prefer.

The Gravel Plains just beyond the coastal dune belt is our first stop, where you can see the lichen and other desert adapted flora.

The Moon Landscape lookout is a magnificent place for taking photographs before we drive into the Swakop river canyon.

We stop at Goanikontes oasis for a toilet break and some refreshments before heading out in the direction of Spitzkoppe.

Our last stop before Spitzkoppe is a Heliograph hill along the B2, before turning on to gravel road for the last 15km to Spitzkoppe. At the turn-off on to the gravel road, there is a big shop selling semi-precious stones. 

At Spitzkoppe we stop for a light lunch, and then visit the Bushman paradise and the small Bushman paradise. 

Lastly we drive to Walvis Bay via Henties Bay, where the Zeila ship wreck is located.

We offer free pickup in Walvis Bay & Swakopmund, including the harbor of Walvis Bay, for this tour. As we are still solving the issues with the booking systems, please provide us with an email address on your booking so that we can give you with the best experience possible.
