Together with a guide you depart by quad or Jeep into the dunes that lie between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. I myself am crammed into the back seat of a Jeep while we drive up and down the steep dunes. The sand moves quickly under our tires, so I sometimes feel the car skidding for a moment. When I see the high dunes passing by, I can hardly imagine that all kinds of small animals still live here and that they are not just grains of sand.
The guide drives to the same place as this morning where he has already spotted several animals from the Little Five, exactly what we want to see now! While he puts a small box full of worms in his jacket pocket to later lure the chameleon, we get out of the jeep. Sometimes we sit on our hands and knees in the sand while the guide slowly wipes away sand layer by sand layer in the hope of finding someone. And we are lucky! Eventually we see four of the five creatures for which these sand dunes are so famous. Curious about who you can spot there? Below I will name all five!
