Hiking through the desert 2019

Introduction

The Namib Desert is an unusual desert. The nature here is either national park or private land. Therefore, large parts of this magnificent landscape, stays hidden to tourism. Vast areas are deserted with no human settlement to be seen for days. In the absence of humans, a variety of animals like Oryx, Zebras and Springboks roam this untouched land. 

This trekking trip in Namibia can only be deducted with special permission and it is therefore a unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Come join us on a journey through one of the most untouched place on earth.

Our hiking safaris start of in the wildly romantic mountain landscapes of the Namibrand region with canyons and the Rostock mountains. On our hikes we visit, among other things, 5,000-year-old Bushman rock paintings. On the 3rd day we depart into the desert! We walk through the dunes of the Namib from Sossusvlei to the skeleton coast. Four days of lonely trekking through endless sand sea. During the day the group will be led by their desert guide, each participant caring their own supplies for the day.  Our supply vehicles expect us only in the late afternoon with cold drinks and a wonderful dinner or BBQ. We enjoy the silence of the desert and the fantastic southern starry sky. After 3 days of hiking through the Namib desert, we arrive at the Atlantic Ocean, a deserved warm shower waiting for us at camp! Our next couple of days will lead us along the coast, with the sea to our left and the desert to our right. We discover abandoned diamond villages, seal colonies, shipwrecks and a diverse flora and fauna. We end our trip in the coastal town of Swakopmund, where the group will have some time at leisure to explore the Namibian culture. For our last night in Namibia, the group will enjoy a farewell dinner in one of Swakopmund's most exceptional restaurants "The Tug", before it is time to head back to Windhoek the next day for your outbound flight.
