We are sailing on the Queen Victoria and will be docking for the day, in Wavis Bay on April 24th, 2016 .What are our options for a private day tour, approximately 6 hours, more or less and what would be the cost for 2 people? We are interested in the sand dunes, the abandoned German mining town reclaimed by the desert south of Wavis Bay, quality craft markets (not touristy), and wild life. Thank you, Taida Supronas, Toronto Canada.

Hi I have sent an email to Discover Namibia twice now, on the 11th and 17th of this month, but so far have not had any reply. While we can sympathise with the power outages (we are from Zimbabwe!!) it is not difficult to install a generator or inverter to ensure that your server remains functioning, as I am sure your whole business depends on reliable communication with clients. It would be a worrying trend if we were to book a trip to Namibia through Discover Namibia and then not be able to reach anyone at the company should there be a problem! Please kindly respond.
