Namibia, Skeleton Coast Trek

Exposed to the mercy of the elements, Namibia’s landscapes are not what you expect to find in Africa; deserts, tortured rock, open plains and a bleak and eerie coastline. The country is dominated by the Namib desert, where the world’s highest sand dunes march determinedly towards the sea in a dune field 300km wide.

Despite these hostile environments Namibia is abundant with wildlife. It is the only place in the world where you can see desert elephants and where black rhino roam free. Our trek will take us through Damaraland to the Skeleton Coast. As we gradually enter the oldest desert in the world, it becomes clear that only the hardiest fauna and flora could survive on this harsh but amazingly beautiful landscape.

Best time of year: March – October

Grade: Tough

Number of days: 11
