Horseback Riding in Namibia

Horseback riding in Namibia gives you access to to a land that is still wonderfully wild and remote, with few paved roads and great swaths of land inaccessible to vehicle travel. It is an arid land, defined by the sands of the Kalahari Desert along the east and south, and the great Namib Desert extending the length of the west coast. The variety of landscapes, colors, geological formations and vegetation in Namibia is remarkable; over every ridge, it seems, is a new scene.

Namibia is politically stable and safe. There are regular flights into Windhoek from Germany, and from Johannesburg, Cape Town, and South Africa.

The owner and ride organizer is best known for founding and running horseback safaris in Botswana. She decided to move to Namibia with a vision to explore and develop new and interesting routes while retaining some of the old favorites. Some of the rides are now suitable for intermediate riders, while others are suited only for seriously fit experienced riders.
