3 nights & 4 days ( 2 additional days available )Highlights:
Coastal Scenery, Dune Driving, Shipwrecks, Abandoned Mining Towns, Exclusive Angling & Namab Oasis Permanent Camp @ Meob Bay.Route & Map:
Our Walvisbay tour is essentially a very relaxed tour
where we spend less time navigating the desert and more time at leisure in our
Namab Oasis camp and the surrounding area. This is the perfect option for those
interested in photographing the desert, ship wrecks and old mining towns. It is
also our best option for the serious fishing enthusiast as our camp is located
on Meob Bay one of the best rock and surf fishing spots on the African west
coast. We angle strictly according to our concession rules and offer an amazing
catch and release opportunity to hook some of the best specimen of Atlantic
fish species. For the 4x4 enthusiast we do still have plenty of opportunity to
test grit and brawn with some serious dune driving areas near our camp location.
The Walvisbay option is the most versatile and
flexible tour option we have and guest groups can really tailor their program
as they see fit and according to their personal interest, also perfect for
corporate get-aways that can offer many options to our guest.
The evening before departure in Walvisbay/Swakopmund Guests
have to arrange their own accommodation. We can advise on accommodation options
if need be. On the evening according to where the majority of the group stays
we will arrange to meet up at a local restaurant for introduction to the crew
and to confirm our departure rendezvous the next day. Kindly note accommodation
and dinner on the evening will be for your own account.
The next morning we get together in Walvisbay at about
07h00 depending on the tides for that particular day or season. We will
navigate a coastal route with some challenging dunes and various places of
interest for about 6 to 8 hours until we reach our beloved Namab Oasis camp.
The remainder of the days we spend in leisure at our
camp and guest can choose from angling in one of Africa’s best fishing spots,
experience off-roading in the dunes some more, or go explore some of the
various abandoned mining towns. Or, simply just soak up the sun while relaxing
with a good book at camp. After an exciting fishing day we like to spoil our
guest with fresh fish prepared our secret way for supper.
Every afternoon we enjoy sundowners as we welcome in
the cool desert night and get cosy around the camp fire in our boma, sharing
good food, fireside adventures and nursing new friendships. At camp fire every
night we will confirm the followings day activities according to the group
dynamics and request we have received from guest.
The last day is an early morning and a constant drive
to reach Walvisbay by early afternoon, hence providing ample time for the group
to have a last dinner together (for guests own account) and enough time for the
group to split up and all make their separate ways to the
This tour is perfect for the family and much more
suited to cater for both the fairer sex and youngsters. Also being of short
duration it tends to be favoured more by the corporate market with limited time
for such incentives.
