Big Dune Driving

The Dune belt between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund formed due to the Kuiseb River not reaching the sea so often, when it do not flow for a long period, sand from the southern Namib Dunes accumulate in the Kuiseb River valley and creep past the river valley near the coast and marches on northward.  When the Kuiseb River does flow and levels are high enough, it washes out accumulated sand thus preventing the southern Namib Dunes from migrating Northward and forming small dunes north of the river.  This small dune area is called Wortel and thousands of small “sekelduine” are in the area, these moving dunes can move up to 1 km in a year, also sometimes referred to as the “speedsters of the Namib. These moving dunes then build up momentum and eventually forms the large dunes as can be found from Dune 7 up to the Swakopriver just north of Swakopmund. An area in this dune belt has been set aside for  the use of 4x4 vehicles by organisations and individuals with the necessary permits. This area stretches from Long Beach (Langstrand) up to dune 7.  Here you will find very large dunes, difficult to negate and every 4x4 enthusiast driving skills would be push to the limits. Some of the dunes are as high as 200 meter with very soft sand and guaranteed to keep you busy. Our base for the next few days would be the Lagoon Chalets in Walvis Bay.  It is a beautiful place, very neat and secure. Situated within walking distance from the Walvis Bay Lagoon and it’s abundance of bird life. Accommodation would be in the fully furnished chalets which include basically all you need for a pleasant stay such as DSTV, Wi-Fi, Bedding, Towels etc., just bring your yourself and your 4x4.

Kaokoland & Damaraland Tours

Kaokoland

Kaokoland is in the north western part of Namibia with the mighty Cunene River that forms the natural border between Namibia and Angola.

Kaokoland is well known for the desert elephant and the nomadic Himba people. The Himba people still live according to ancient traditions and you will find these beautiful people all over Koakoland “the red people”.

There are lots of desert elephants in Kaokoland, roaming free. You will see they are smaller than the other. They and other wildlife like lion, giraffe, oryx and rhino have adapted through the years to survive in these extreme conditions.

The Cunene river flows from east to west and ends in the Benguella sea. The river are full of crocks with beautiful scenes of waterfalls, palm trees, huge Acasia trees on the banks through mountains and the final part through big dunes.

This is truly one of the last remaining wilderness areas, lots to offer to tourist and the beauty not known to many out here.

We will take you to all these places that’s so unknown and “secret” to the normal people to visit Kaokoland.

The Portuguese culture is still very strong and Portuguese is the language everyone speaks. The country is stocked with amazing natural and historical treasures.

Independence was achieved during 1975 under a communist one-party state backed by the Soviet Union and Cuba. Most of the Portuguese people left the country as the country descended into a long civil war that lasted until 2002.

Angola has vast mineral and petroleum reserves and it’s economy is among the fastest growing in the world, in spite of this the standard of living remains low for the majority of the population.

Torrabaai Dune Driving & Fishing

Torra Bay is a camping place in the Skeleton Coast National Park, open to the public during December and January only. The rest of the year there are no fishing in the Torra Bay area allowed because of the conservation area it is in. Torra has very good and modern ablution facilities with a main building with a shop / kitchen and braai area.

Westcoast 4x4 Namibia do have access to stay at Torra Bay during the rest of the year through NWR. They granted Westcoast 4x4 the right to do tours in the area. Fishing is allowed as normal in the Terrace Bay area which starts about 24 km from Torra.

An impressive dune belt starts south of Torra and stretches way past Terrace Bay and this is the dunes we do explore and enjoy responsibly.

There are lots of wildlife in the area especially in the Uniab Delta close to the ocean. You will find Oryx, springbok, ostrich and the famous desert lion. The illusive Brown hyena patrols the coast line for something to eat during the night.
