Namib Dune Trails

WALKING THROUGH TIME

Follow a rich, red dune trail, edged by fossilised dunes, in one of the oldest deserts in the world. Discover the abundance of life in the desert: white lady spiders spin silken homes, beetles and lizards glisten in the sunlight, golden moles leave sand ribbons in their wake and gemsbok peep heads over sandy ridges. The trail leads to Namib Dune Star Camp with views of the sublime landscape where ripples of sand extend to grassy plains and purple mountains, in a medley of subtle hues. Roll your bed out onto the deck of your cabin to savour the Namib night. Let the desert magic stir your soul.

Mountain Biking

REDISCOVERING FREEDOM

Weaving through the granite hills of Klein Aus Vista, a series of routes offers excitement and adventure for the intermediate and advanced mountain bike enthusiast. Meandering dry rivercourses, rugged valleys and orange-tinted granite-gneiss outcrops characterise the terrain while the lofty heights – reaching altitudes of 1250-1700m - offer vistas of the Pro-Namib where the desert dances with the grassy plains. Keep eyes open for klipspringer, kudu and rock hyrax in the hills, springbok on the plains and black eagles that circle the sky, celebrating boundless freedom.

INTO THE WILD

Seize the opportunity to experience sunset amidst the red sand dunes of the Kalahari, the throne of ancient fossilised dunes in the Namib and the vast and lovely Gondwana Canyon Park. Or, take a trip through one of the most diverse biomes on Earth in the Gondwana Sperrgebiet Rand Park, the wildlife haven of Etosha or the Bwabwata National Park in the Zambezi where gentle rivers of life merge with African bush. This is time to sit back, relax and let the guides lead you into wonderland.

Walking Trails

SOUL-STRETCHING

Feel the good Namibian earth underfoot. Stretch legs and souls on our walking trails and become acquainted with the land. Some of the greatest journeys begin with a simple step and the best seats are often on the mountain tops. Away from the bustle of civilisation, time slows down. Agamas sun themselves on rocks, birds flit through the vegetation and camelthorn trees adorn themselves with crescent-shaped pods. Breathe in the clear air and rejuvenating energy of the land.

River Excursions

RIVER RHYTHM

Let the waterworld of the Kavango and Zambezi regions lull you into peaceful reverie. In the northeastern corner of the country, lush vegetation balances desert extremes and waterways wind through bush savannah. The melodic sound of bird calls wafts through the day, to be joined in the evening by the chiming of reed frogs and the grunting of hippos. Glimpse villagers rowing their bwato and fishing on the riverbanks from the Hakusembe River Queen and hop aboard a boat at Namushasha to explore the lush waterways of the Kwando River. Water lilies brighten the channels and waterbirds fly up into glossy trees. The peace of the river permeates your being.

SONGS & SPIRIT

A bushy path leads from Namushasha River Lodge to a traditional heritage centre under the boughs of a great, old baobab tree. As if on a treasure hunt, colourful information boards along the way provide exciting clues to understanding the natural river bounty and the intriguing Caprivian way of life. Rich detail, encompassing diverse topics such as musical instruments, hippos, fishing, basketry and traditional healers, is complemented by the Caprivians themselves who welcome you warmly to their village under domes of sweet-smelling thatch. Be prepared for song, dance and laughter.
