After breakfast we’ll take a day trip to Spitzkoppe, the “Matterhorn of Namibia”. This is a group of bald granite peaks located in the Namib desert, the granite is more than 120 million years old.
We’re going sandboarding down dunes outside Swakopmund! you can either do stand-up boarding (which is like snowboarding, but on sand) or you can do lie-down boarding, or you can be a boss and do both! No previous experience is required here, just a spirit of adventure.

We’re going quad biking through the Namib dune belt, where we’ll experience the thrill of riding through Namibia’s boundless expanse of shifting sand dunes and enjoy some spectacular views from some of the highest dunes in the WORLD. This will be followed by a drive back to Windhoek.
