Namibia Walking

Truly one of the most remote places in Africa, Namibia’s many wonders practically demand to be explored by foot. On this journey we combine the highlights of the region, weaving in off-the-beaten-track locations like Kaokoland and Damarland with must-see staples like the dunes at Sossevlei. Walking with the nomadic Himba people and tracking rhinos by foot, you’ll sense the endless possibilities on offer in a country with peoples as diverse as its environments.

  • Get away from it all in your private camp in the Namib Rand Nature Reserve.
  • Learn about the specialized animals such as the desert lion up in the Skeleton Coast National Park.
  • Take a morning walk to meet the local Himba tribes in the Purros Valley.
  • Spend the day tracking the largest population of free roaming black rhino in Africa.
