Sandwich Harbour, Skeleton Coast Namibia

Surely as exciting as is sounds, this is one of the best 4×4 drives you will ever experience.

With the cold Atlantic Ocean on the one side and the Namib Desert on the other, you have to make you way in and out there by driving at exactly the right time, at low tide, otherwise you will be spending the night in your car.  It is recommended to join this activity with one of the activity operators in Walvis Bay.

Sandwich Harbour (Portuguese: Porto d’Ilheo) is a lagoon on the Atlantic coast of Namibia, lying south of Walvis Bay, within the Namib -Naukluft National Park. Formerly a moderately sized commercial port based around whaling and small-scale fishing, it declined as the harbour silted up, and is now best known for its bird life. Although called Sandwich Harbour it was never a harbour or even a port. It is a shallow lagoon lying about 80 km South of Walvis Bay, Namibia.
