Swakopmund Desert Tour

Over the holidays we spent some time in Swakopmund and took a great tour of the local desert with Tommy’s Living Desert Tours. It was a highlight for my parents who were visiting Namibia (and a highlight for us as well!). Tommy is quite a character, and his passion for the desert landscapes, wildlife and conservation is inspiring.

Here are some photos from the tour:

Chameleon

Namaqua Chameleon (On a side note, I recommend the Namaqua Dry Red Wine from South Africa. It comes in a convenient 5L box.)

Desert meets ocean

The desert and dunes meet the ocean just south of Swakopmund, Namibia.
