Great Namibian Desert Trail


Great Namibian Desert Trail
Namibia Namibia
Central Namibia offers spectacular and fascinating contrasts; from Khomas Highland mountains and escarpment to the Kuiseb Canyon; the Tinkas, Tumas and Welwitschia plains, Moon Valley, the seasonal Swakop River and the coastal dunes of the Atlantic Ocean. Crossing the oldest desert in the world on horseback is an experience of a lifetime! Arguably one of the most scenic deserts on the planet, the Namib, with its iconic ocher dunes and vast grassy plains, is a sensual delight. With a surprisingly varied wildlife for this seemingly inhospitable ‘wasteland’, it holds wonderful surprises for those who have the eyes to see.

Explore unique and spectacular desert landscapes on super fit and responsive horses.

You will ride fast for long stretches and yet, with some preparation, it is within the capabilities of most seasoned riders. Throughout the rides you are accompanied by an excellent horse people and adventurer whose riding and organizational skills will continually impress you. The horses are strong and fit as they live on the rough terrain in the bush. 

This horse riding safari from near Sossusvlei to Swakopmund on the Atlantic Coast this is our most challenging ride and not for the faint-hearted but is, undeniably, the ride of a lifetime!
