What to expect

The Living Desert Tour is a unique 4x4 adventure which specializes in bringing the desert to life, whilst sharing the awesome beauty of the Namib Desert with travellers from all over the world. The coastal dune belt may seem barren and lifeless to many people, but in fact it is alive with a fascinating variety of desert adapted animals which are able to survive on the life-giving fog which consistently rolls in from the cold Atlantic Ocean.

Observe the Dancing White Lady Spider cartwheel at 44 rotations per second down a dune to escape the enemy. Admire the transparent Namib Dune Gecko with webbed feet that are similar to snow shoes, and learn about different beetles and insects and how they survive in the dune desert.

Follow in the tracks of a legless Lizard (Fitsimmon’s Burrowing Skink), observe Sand Diving Lizards (Meroles Anchieta) dancing on the hot sand, Sidewinder Snakes (Perinquey’s Adder), Desert Chameleons and many more fascinating creatures. Learn about the geology, structure and formation of the desert, and admire the vast and beautiful landscape while enjoying a scenic dune drive combined with fun and adrenalin.
