PV01: Topnaar Tours
The Topnaar drive is a 2-3 hour scenic and educational drive. Depart from the Photo Ventures office and our first stop is the Walvis Bay Lagoon. A must for the keen birder. More than a hundred bird species and the biggest population of flamingos in Southern Africa. Our next stop is the Walvis Bay Salt works, colors, colors, colors…
This also is our first introduction to dune driving, an unforgettable experience of which you would still talk about for the rest of your holiday. The package offered is scenery, adventure, traditional people wildlife and a million and one photo opportunities.
And last but not least, the Topnaar tribe, a semi nomadic tribe, offshoot of the Nama tribe, part of the Khoisan genetic group. There are 2 Topnaar groups, the Southern ‡Aonin group and the Northern !Gomén group. The !Gomén Topnaars settled close to Sesfontein and the ‡Aonin Topnaars at the mouth of the Kuiseb River. They lived a life that relied on herding goats, but also adapted to the dry coastal desert environment of the Namib. The relatively rich plant life of the Kuiseb River valley provided them with additional sources of food, particularly the well-known !nara melon.

The Topnaar route is a 2 hour scenic and educational drive. We depart from the office which would give you the chance to get used to the quads before we get to the dunes. It would take approximately 3-4 minutes to reach the dunes. Once we reach the dunes, a whole new world opens up. Beautiful landscapes, magical colours and the unbelievable life of animals and people and there survival in the desert.

Tour code PV03: Sandwich Harbour
A 50km scenic 4×4 drive takes you to one of the most photogenic places in Namibia. A place with red beaches and waves running up dunes depending on the tide. On windy days, the sand plays patterns on the dunes and during late afternoons the shadows change it to one of the seven natural wonders on earth. Sandwich Harbour is a natural bay that has awed and inspired many a visitor and traveler. With its rolling dunes falling into the ocean and the large lagoon, this unspoiled bay is a haven for birds and marine life, while creating the most amazing feeling of grandeur and beauty in such a stark environment.
The bay also has a very interesting history when Namibia was still known as South West Africa and a German Colony, but that we will share with you when you join us on visit to Sandwhich Harbour.
Enjoy lunch with a glass of wine or a ice cold beer on top of a dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The secret is Peace, tranquility and timelessness.
What to see on the route:
We depart from the Photo Ventures office at 8-30 and our first stop is the Walvis Bay Lagoon, a Ramstar site with a abundance of birdlife. Known for its big population of Flamingoes. Your guide will point out the different birds. From there we depart to the top of a dune overlooking the salt mine… colours, colours and more colours!!! After our stop we drive through the Kuiseb delta,a dry river covered with hardy vegetated desert vegetation changing to open salt pans until we reach the Namib Naukluft Park Border.
