We observed and learned about far more desert animals than expected. The fascinating chameleon, the spectacular palmetto gecko, the intimidating large black scorpion, several species of snakes and beetles. Tommy and Evan are knowledgeable, fun and engaging. Spectacular scenery and pleasant temperatures made it a great use of time and money. A top of list experience in Namibia.

Very interesting tour. We saw Chameleon, spiders, snake.. But we were too many people, so there was less time for taking pictures.

A group of 12 of us went with Living Desert Tours on a 3 hour safari in two vehicles. We had a guide who was so knowledgeable and hands-on that we learned more in 1 hour than in a whole week's worth of tours. It was a stimulating trip.

Lovely tour with great knowledgable staff. Guides told stories and made it enjoyable for all ages in both English and German. You learn about the desert, wildlife and living in and around Swakopmund. We saw all of the animals on the "Little 5" list and more plus finish off with dune exploration before heading back. Enthusiastic staff and good vehicles... More

As others have said, a must do whilst in Swakopmund. Entertaining, educational, informative just brilliant. It's just as much fun as searching for the Little Five as for the Big Five although success cannot always be guaranteed I'm sure. We were lucky and found them and got some great photos too. The tour is just as much about everything else... More

Driving over the dunes and seeing the mini five animals was really interesting. Above expectations. The guides were informative, relaxed and fun! You would not believe how many different species exists in the dessert. The views are also great for those who like to take pictures.

Our living Desert Adventure was one of the best half day tours we have ever been on. Our guide was very informative, and knew his stuff well. We cannot speak highly enough of this activity.

A fantastic tour, with such a knowledgeable and entertaining guide, Chris. We had a wishlist in our heads of what we hoped to see, and we weren't disappointed. Obviously nature isn't predictable but Chris's tracking skills found us a sidewinder, an amazing web-footed gecko, a hardly seen in daylight dancing white lady spider and a chameleon, who beautifully demonstrated his...
