We did 2 tours with Turnstone - one out into the Dezz, the other along the high dunes at Oyster Bay. Both Bruno and Burgher (our Guides) were just fabulous - they understood quickly what we were interested in and then just laid it on! Great guys, to boot!

My wife and I are enthusiastic, 'opportunist' bird watchers and really wanted to do some birding whilst in Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. We read in a number of Guide Books that, for this area, the Turnstone Tours organisation provides the definitive combination of Birding and Expeditions to view the amazing sand dunes, bay areas, Kuiseb Delta and Sandwich Harbour. Well,... More

Sandwich harbor is one of the places in Namibia which is quite elusive and you need to know what you are doing to get in and out safely! Bruno, of Turnstone tours, has done this trip about 3000 times and is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about this area. The tour is definitely worth doing... even again and again!

We had an incredible day today with Bruno, the owner of Turnstone Tours. Sandwich Harbour took our breath away, and although we have been told Bruno doesn't care much for Trip Advisor reviews - he just does what he does, and does it well- we have to review for others to see and go ahead with this fantastic day tour....

A full day trip from Swakopmund to Sandwich Harbour with Sunstone Tours was first class. Our guide Burger was friendly, informative and knows how to drive on the tricky coast and dune surfaces. The scenery is very varied with surprising patches of vegetation where you would not expect to find in this desert environment. There are opportunities to climb up... More

This tour was one of the highlights of of 9 day trip! Without doing any research I was expecting this to be a boat tour. Fortunately I discover the evening before that it was in fact a dune tour! Wear layers and don't forget sunscreen and a hat! An amazing day of incredible sights. Burger was an amazing guide and... More

We had a fantastic day out with Berger driving up to Sandwich Harbour. He was friendly and engaging, and we learnt a lot from him. Sandwich Harbour itself is spectacular, and well worth a visit. Lunch by the ocean was delicious.

What a great tour to Sandwich Harbour. Our guide Burger collected us at our hotel and we drove through Walvis Bay stopping to see the bird life on the way. We had an adventurous drive down along the coast to Sandwich Harbour stopping at points of interest pointed out by Burger. We stopped for a lovely lunch and climbed the... More

We were treated to a full day tour with Berger as our guide who really is a very knowledgeable person. We drove along the beach to Sandwich Harbour seeing various wildlife along the way including jackals and flamingos. Our trip into the dunes was amazing and having lunch with a view of the dunes on one side and the sea... More

We were specially privileged to have Bruno to drive us on our second trip to Sandwich harbour with Turnstone. Apart from exceptional driving skills he has encyclopaedic knowledge of the flora, fauna and geology of the area and despite his long experience he shows his interest and enthusiasm has in no way diminished. The trip was constantly interesting. Sometimes like... More
