This morning after breakfast connect with desert life during a Living Desert Tour. During this unique 4x4 adventure, discover the geology, structure, and formation of the desert and admire the vast and beautiful landscapes on a scenic dune drive along the coastal dune belt. The landscape may seem barren and lifeless, but in fact it is alive with a fascinating variety of small, desert-adapted animals, which are able to survive on the life-giving fog. See the arachnid known as the “dancing white lady spider” cartwheel down a dune at 44 turns per second to escape predators. Admire the transparent Namib dune gecko’s webbed feet, which function like snow shoes. Learn about the different beetles and insects and how they survive in the dune desert. Follow in the tracks of a legless lizard, observe sand-diving lizards dancing on the hot sand, plus sidewinders, desert chameleons, and many more fascinating creatures. After lunch, explore the rocky granite valley known as the “Moon Valley,” a short drive east. This amazing landscape was carved out by the Swakop River over time and offers vast, ever-changing landscapes. Special care is taken not to damage the gravel plains and to protect this special ecosystem. Discuss conservation, geological structures, fauna and flora. Be on the lookout for small creatures as well as larger mammals and birds such as springboks, klipspringers, baboons, jackals, and Ostriches.
