Discover a Namibian Adventure

tourguidesWalvis Bay Tour Guides started as a vision by Fried Fredericks to start a small business, to introduce visitors to the traditional life of Namibians and to promote conservation efforts of the local environment. The business was started with a grant from Environmental fund of the Municipality of Walvis Bay. The initial tours comprised guided and historic township tours through Kuisebmond providing tourists with a new grittier and raw perspective of traditional Namibia, away from the trite glitz and the polish of the mainstream tourism offerings. These tours were an instant hit not only with foreign visitors but also locals who had never seen the richness of the different Namibian cultures. Today, Walvis Bay tour Guides, has extended its tours with dolphin, seal and bird watching cruises within the Walvis Bay harbour area.

Walvis Bay Tour Guides is own and manage by the previously disadvantage local community, to promote “Local community based tourism” beneficial for communities also in the outskirts of Walvis Bay.  We are registered with the Namibian Tourism Board (NTB) assuring that all legal prerequisites are met to satisfy the safety and well-being of any interested visitor to The Republic of Namibia.

Our office is also a small souvenir shop stocked with products embracing the brand Walvis Bay Tour Guides for visitors to have something to remember us by.

sandwhichThe tour doesn’t start at sandwich harbour but the moment you enter the vehicle. You get to see our salt evaporation ponds. Drive through the Kuiseb Delta, a dry riverbed full of history of the Topnaar people, whose ancestors have been living in the delta for centuries. The best way to experience this rich and unique wetland is by foot or by car. If the weather or tides does not allow us to access the harbour directly, we will view it from a viewing point on top of the dune where one can easily make out the harbour and the wildlife. The day is ended with a picnic consisting of a light meal with some fresh Walvis Bay oysters, sparkling wine and other drinks. The sandwich harbour tour ends at 4pm and by 5pm you will be back in Walvis Bay.

Sandwich Harbour (Portuguese: Porto d’Ilhéu), also known as Sandwich Bay, Sandvishawe, Sandvisbaai and Sandfisch Bai is an area on the Atlantic coast of Namibia that includes a bay in the north and a lagoon at the southern end. Lying about 80 km south of Walvis Bay the bay opens to the north and is about 4.2 km long and 4 km wide. There is a shallow lagoon lying south of the bay, separated from it by an area of beach ridges and swales with saltpans. The area was surveyed in the 1880s by the Royal Navy but it was considered very inferior to Walvis Bay and no development took place. In the 1930s an ambitious project was started to build a guano island in the lagoon using sand pumps imported from the Netherlands.  All that remains of the project is the manager’s house.

Currently the bay and lagoon are within the Namib-Naukluft National Park. The fauna was surveyed by the South African Museum and the National Museum of Namibia. It was found that the fauna was totally marine.
