Day 1: We leave at 14h00 Wintertime (15h00 Summertime) from our base into the Namib desert, towards the ringing stones. On the route you will be able to see much of the deserts very scarce flora and some interesting rock formations. With a bit of luck we will also be able to see some of the very scarce desert wildlife. First overnight camp will be at the ringing stones.
Day 2: From Ringing stones we will hike into the endless rock canyons at the banks of the Swakop river and at all times expecting the most unsuspected, like finding some tourmalines or just some normal crystal hidden amongst the rocks or in caves. Some parts of the desert will remind you of movies you have seen about the moon. Overnight stay will be in one of the canyons with a stunning view at sunset over the desert plains.
Day 3: Today the hike will take us up to the oasis Goanikontes, where we can rest our legs in a cold rock water pool, after which we will hike down the dry Swakop river towards the coast line past some ruins left behind by the colonialist history of the country. Camp will be under the starlit sky in the desert.
Day 4: On the final day the hike will take us via the small moon landscape back to the Okakambe base, where we should be just before lunch, where everybody departs back home to their respective hotels or safaris or just books into one of our Bungalows or rooms.
