Living Dunes Tour with Charlys Desert Tours


Discover one of the oldest deserts in the world between majestic dunes and silent lowlands! The unique climate of the Namib Desert flanked by the shores of the Atlantic Ocean hosts a variety of endemic life, animals and plants alike, some found nowhere else in the world but here.


For the untrained eye the dunes, and gravel plains seem to be lifeless but your guide knows it beams with life and will show you this.


Not only does this impress you but also the extreme silence  can be overwhelming and soothing  – whilst hiking all these elements come together. On gravel stones lichens grow and in the sand we discover chameleons, lizards, scorpions, small snakes, spiders, and much more life.


In the area around Swakopmund, the Namib desert shows it’s most beautiful side.
