Damaraland horseback riding holiday in Namibia

Damaraland Trail

Ride Overview

The gifts of Damaraland are many. The famous fauna and flora, elephant & rhino, Welwitschia mirabilis, and the Skeleton Coast with its disintegrating shipwrecks all make for an adventurous horseback riding holiday in Namibia that is hard to describe and impossible to forget.

For half the trip, the truck, water cart and trailer cannot make it into the campsites but you explore some of the most untraveled terrain on the globe.This is an extraordinary trail through a nearly inaccessible and little visited part of Africa. It is an area of vivid colors and wide open spaces. You are not likely to see elephants, giraffe and rhino in a desert habitat anywhere else in the world, but here you can see them. There may be late rains, causing the rivers to flood, which results in natural spectacles of tremendous adventure.
