Ride to the Sea

Ride Overview

This is an endurance horseback riding tour in Namibia through a region of overwhelming beauty and isolation. It crosses 400 kms of the world’s oldest desert from central Namibia to the Atlantic Coast, with practically no contact with civilization of any kind before reaching the sea. Participants must be prepared for 9 consecutive days of riding, which will challenge one’s physical strength, stamina and riding ability. In the desert’s constantly changing topography, riders gain a deep appreciation for the remarkable horses, and the fascinating flora and fauna which have adapted to this beautiful, austere environment.

Accommodations

The tents are two-person dome tents. You have the option of sleeping in the tents, or under the stars.

Meals & Drink

Meals are prepared over the open fire. This braai or potjiekos is typical for Namibia, and often a welcome surprise.
