Sandwich Harbour Guided Self-Drive
We're not big fans of 'tours' but we wanted to drive to Sandwich harbour. Jaque and PJ couldn't have given us a better experience. They drove ahead with a radio, talked us through any difficult driving, and expertly guided through the whole day. They quickly seemed to gauge what interested us, and then tailored the tour accordingly. They were incredibly well informed about the area. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. In fact, they were so good we went out with them a second day - and that's from people who don't like being tours!
We have teamed up with the good people at Africa on Wheels.
They hire out suitable dune driving vehicles and cover the insurance, where many other companies do not. Please contact them here to enquire about availability of their vehicles.
