Itinerary for Desert Canyons Safari

Sample Itinerary - subject for changes

Camp life has a leisurely pace - days begin at sunrise with the aroma of freshly brewed 100% Arabica coffee wafting through camp.
After a hearty breakfast we start riding around 8am for 4 - 5 hours. Lunch breaks are 1 - 2 hours, followed by another 2 - 3 hours riding in the afternoon.

Day 1: Arrival
You will be collected in Cape Town International Airport (or city) before 9:30am for your transfer north. The transfer is 5.5 hours to your accommodations for the first night at Springbok on the edge of the Richterveld Transfrontier Park.

Day 2: Holoog
After the border crossing we reach Hollog (meaning 'hollow eye') Ranger Station in time for lunch with the crew. After lunch, meet the horses and saddle up in the afternoon and ride in and around the Gaap River with its fascinating rock formations and rich plant diversity.

Day 3-5: The Canyons
We will be following the Gaap River and crossing several small canyons crisscrossing this very plant-diverse area, which is also home to a number of game species including giraffe and rhino. We encounter some wide plains along the way so the pace quickens with some lovely long canters. We camp at Canyon Roadhouse, with its curious 'living museum' of old cars and movie memorabilia, and overnight at the intimate Mountain Camp lodge with its spectacular view.

Day 6-10: The Plains to the Orange
Starting with a transfer to view the main viewpoint of the Fish River Canyon, we continue riding after lunch. Being both a winter and summer rainfall biome, this area is known for its rich flora and fauna diversity. Large herds of seasonal plains game species can be seen.
We ride to our overnight location at the Ai Ais hot springs, where the deliciously warm water of the spring can be enjoyed in the afternoon- bring your swimsuit! Finally dropping down into the valley of the Orange River, we enjoy the last overnight on the banks of the river.

Day 11: Departure
After an early breakfast we depart on a 9.5-hour commute to Cape Town International Airport, arriving between 5:00pm and 6:00pm.
