We offer full
day and half day excursions to search for the
only endemic species within the country, the
dune adapted Dune Lark as well as other
near-endemics such as Gray's Lark, Benguela
Long-billed Lark, Rüppell's Korhaan, the coastal
form of Tractrac Chat and Herero Chat.
Besides the birding, the
Namib offers a huge diversity of arid adapted
reptiles, scorpions and insects.
Batis is the
only company presently offering night excursions
into the gravel plains of the Namib to search
for spiders, scorpions and geckos which are only
active at night.
The Batis guides are trained in
the general ecology of the desert and special
care is taken to protect and keep the sensitive
eco system intact.
Day tours offered from
Swakopmund will normally be short distances and
seldom be longer than 200km, however, should
there be a request for species such as Benguela
Long-billed Lark or Herero Chat, a distance up
to 450km may be covered.
The Namib Desert and
its uniquely arid adapted fauna and flora offers
excellent photographic opportunities and you
will discover that there is a lot more to the
Namib Desert than the vast open plains and Dune
