Start out from Soussusvlei, its striking red dunes changing in hue at sunrise and sunset, the journey taking you through to the Atlantic Ocean. Travel across Namibia’s endless desert plains; the terraces of the Kuiseb Canyon, the rugged Namib Naukluft Mountains and Moon Valley’s lunar-esque landscape ripe for the adventurous rider.
Uneven and rocky, the mountainous terrain presents challenges even for the most experienced; at some points this arid expanse filled with a life giving mist, the oryx and desert adapted giraffe spotted en route. A once in a lifetime riding holiday, pick up the pace on the Tinkas and Tumas plains, ostrich and mountain zebra cantering alongside.
A major highlight, the Kuiseb Canyon has a famous literary connection, “The Sheltering Desert” by Henno Martin well worth a read before venturing out on horseback to the oldest desert in the world.
