Namibia II - 950km of Africa and pristine sand dunes!

Day 1
Transfer from Namibia's international airport to downtown Windhoek to a good B&B. Afternoon at leisure: sightseeing, shopping, etc. In the evening we meet at one of Windhoek's beer gardens that is famous far beyond Namibia's borders.

Day 2
After a wholesome breakfast we travel to Okahandja past Midgard all the way to Omaruru, 20 km on tar, rest on dirt roads. Near Omaruru with the adjacent Erongo Mountains we sleep in a tent camp, which we pitch ourselves. The tents and camping equipment will be provided by AMT, but the participants are requested to help with pitching and taking down the tent camp. All warm meat-based and vegetarian meals are freshly prepared on the open fire.

Day 3
We depart to Namibia's highest mountain, the 2,573 m high Brandberg, on gravel and hard sand roads. Here, where there are no more fences, is where the real adventure starts. With some luck we might even spot wild desert elephants. After 170 km we have reached today's destination. Despite the day's efforts, the wonderful view over this pristine landscape will turn this day into an unforgettable experience. Like with a all overnight stays on this tour, a warm shower and our savoury bush cuisine is part of the package. We sleep in tents.

Day 4
We continue through sandy and rocky passages in Ugab and along the Brandberg. For the night we camp again at Brandberg White Lady Lodge.

Day 5
We leave the Brandberg and set out to face a new off-road challenge! Today we cover 150 km off-road! Overnight camping at the Spitzkoppe, Namibia's famous "Matterhorn" and its untouched landscape. Dinner at the camp fire.

Day 6
Over gravel roads that are typical for Namibia we ride back to Windhoek through the Khomas Highland. This section takes us for some 250 km on gravel roads and a short stretch on tar road. We sleep at the Heja Game Lodge outside of Windhoek, where we can watch wildlife from our terrace. Dinner not included.

Day 7
After a nice breakfast with views over the surrounding bush landscape with all its wildlife we have the option of going on a game drive through the land of Heja Game Lodge. Or you can stay at the lodge and relax at the pool. In the afternoon we will take you to the airport in time for your return flight to Europe.
