Namib Desert Tour with Kallisto Tours

Hans-Dieter Göthje, the founder and owner of Kallisto Tours was born and bred in Swakopmund. He acquired an excellent knowledge of his home country in all respects. All tours are guided by himself. A guaranty for your best experience but with very limited availability.

Activity Option 1
Full Day Namib Desert Tour (7.0 h tour)
We travel along the small-holdings on the northern bank of the Swakop River into the oldest desert of the world, the Namib Desert. Your tour-guide will explain the origin of the Namib Desert and explain the geological and climatic conditions of this coastal desert.

As we proceed further we leave every trace of civilisation behind and find ourselves surrounded by the rugged and rocky scenery of the Namib Desert.

Experience the “Ringing Stones” and the fascinating plants of the Namib, for example the indigenous Lithops, also known as the “Living Stones”, as well as a variety of rare lichens, and most of all, the remarkable Welwitschia plant, a living fossil which is only found in this geographical area.

With a bit of luck, one can see Springbok, Klipspringer, Steenbok, Baboon, Ostriches, Ruppels korhaan and the Trac-trac Chat.

After a lunch break we drive along the dry riverbed of the Swakop Valley which is lined with Tamarisk, Prosopis and Ana trees. We pass the Oasis “Goanikontes”, enter the Namib Naukluft Park and view the “Moon Valley” from a vantage point. We close off this tour with a visit to the shifting sand dunes near Swakopmund..
