Namibia Horse Safaris
Arguably one of the most spectacular deserts on the planet, the Namib, with its iconic ochre dunes and vast grassy plains is a delight to every sense. It hosts a surprising variety of wildlife for a seemingly inhospitable ‘wasteland’ and surprises even the most seasoned of travellers.
The signature Namib Desert Horseback Safari is a challenging 11 day ride which takes in the vast dunes and dramatics vistas of the desert, plus canyons, moonscapes and soft sand beaches as you travel from Sossusvlei to Swakopmund on the Atlantic Coast.
The Damara Elephant Safari takes you from Twyfelfontein to Cape Cross on the Skeleton Coast taking in the inaccessible, rugged wilderness etched with poignantly delicate colours. Encounters with elephant, rhino and even lion are common along the way.
For those with an interest in geology, the Desert Canyons Safari visits The Fish River Canyon – the largest natural gorge in Africa and a most impressive geological feature. It involves endless canters through meandering gorges and dramatically eroded escarpments.
For a truly remarkable horseback safari, serious adventurers should take on the Namibian Epic Safari – a 31 day journey from the hauntingly rugged Damaraland to the open plains of the great central Namib and finally to the forbidden diamond area of the Sperrgebiet. It covers some of the most extraordinarily diverse and fascinating desert terrain imaginable.
