hunters and missionaries did ... on horseback!
6 Nights / 7 Days
10 Nights / 11 Days
Set off in the late afternoon for one of the greatest adventures imaginable - a ride straight out into the middle of the ancient lakebed! Eventually all that can be seen is the vast flatness stretching in every direction.
Watch the sun set and the stars rise. This is one of the only places in the world where the silence is so complete you can hear the blood circulating through your ears.
There is not one visual landmark to be seen and one swiftly loses one’s sense of perspective - 16,000 square kilometres of baking soda void, are inhabited only by you and a few gazillion invisible brine shrimp! And it is here that we’ll make camp. Sleeping on bedrolls under the silence of a star studded sky!
Namibia has many great natural assets, not least of these are its dramatic landforms exposed for all to see like the pages in a book they capture both the imagination and the senses. Damaraland (dah-mah’rah land), with its tortured volcanic history, free-ranging big game, and huge ephemeral river systems is a good example of the adage that real voyages of discovery consist not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. Inaccessible and extremely rugged and yet etched with poignantly delicate colours, this is true wilderness. These are the real wonders of this earth, these hauntingly beautiful vistas and ancient land- shapes. From Twyfelfontein (tway’full-fon’tayn) to Cape Cross on the Skeleton Coast, the sheer remoteness of this challenging riding safari makes them unsuitable for inexperienced riders since encounters with Elephant, Rhino and even Lion are possible. On the other hand, this could be the most thrilling horse riding safari of your life!
