Itinerary for Between Desert & Skeleton Coast

Sample Itinerary - subject to changes

Days begin at sunrise with the smell of freshly brewed coffee wafting through camp, followed by breakfast; departure is generally by 8am with 4 – 5 hours riding before lunch. Lunch breaks are an hour to 2 hours followed by another 2 – 3 hours riding in the afternoon.

Day 1: Arrival
Arrive at Walvis Bay airport and transfer to your hotel in Swakopmund. Sundowners and dinner with your guide.

Day 2:
Depart Swakopmund to our lunch spot on the Skeleton Coast with a visit to the lichen fields and a shipwreck en-route. Lunch in camp, saddle up and ride to first overnight camp.

Day 3-10:
There is an easy rhythm to camp life with memorable evenings around the campfire, making new friends, sleeping under the stars. This is a little bit of Heaven on Earth.  From the Ugab River to Leeuwkop (lions head) in this landscape of undulating, multicoloured and interesting geology. Some of the best going anywhere on the planet - so expect lots of fast riding! Descent into the lower reaches of the Ugab river before reaching the lichen-covered coastal plains of the Skeleton Coast. Last night in a luxury beach house.

Day 11: Departure
Transfer to Windhoek International Airport for flights leaving after 3:00pm.
