NAMIB DESERT EXPERIENCE
Namibia is often described as an enigma; a country so diverse in its offering to visitors that it almost defies categorisation. Namibia provides some of the most stunning landscapes in Africa, and a trip through this country is unquestionably one of the great motorcycle adventures of southern Africa.
Natural wonders await you along the way, ranging from the mighty and awe-inspiring Fish River Canyon to the bleak, but beautiful serenity of the Namib; the majestic coastal vistas and cultural capital of Windhoek.
But it’s the seemingly endless roads where mighty slabs of granite rise out of swirling desert sands that will sear themselves in your mind. It’s like a coffee-table book come to life as sand dunes in the world’s oldest desert meet the crashing rollers along the wild Atlantic coast.
This tour has been designed to explore the central and southern parts of Namibia, via Botswana, allowing you to experience a little of each of the highlights of the country. We will spend time in Windhoek, Sossusvlei, Luderitz and nearby Kolmansop and the Fish River Canyon.
Whatever you have heard about this breathtaking country cannot match the experiences you will enjoy travelling the vastness that is the Namib.
This route includes good gravel and packed sand roads. No loose sand.
