Damaraland Bike, Namibia
Bike through Damaraland to the Skeleton Coast
Our bike challenge will take us through Damaraland to the Skeleton Coast. As we gradually enter the oldest desert in the world, the formidable Namib that stretches north to south hugging the Skeleton Coast, it becomes clear that only the hardiest fauna and flora could survive on this harsh but amazingly beautiful landscape. The Namib Desert is a geologist’s paradise with many spectacular rock formations clearly exposed after thousands of years of erosion.
As we cycle further towards the Skeleton Coast the landscape opens up with more extended views into the vast distance, giving you an idea of the scale of Namibia’s vastness. The landscapes in this part are carved and dissected by water erosion when the ground is worn away and gulley’s and channels are cut ever deeper into the surface, leaving exposed spectacular rock formations and a wonderful jigsaw puzzle built over many millions of years.
Namibia defines the meaning of epic scale. There is nowhere else on the vast African continent that quite compares with its rugged, almost lunar grandeur.
Best time of year: February – October
Number of days: 11
