“Where else in the world can you see wild horses, ostrich and oryx at the same water hole?”

TBA for 2024

Namibia Equine & Wildlife Safari

Due to the current complications with international travel (flight cancellations, difficulties with COVID insurance, etc.) This trip will be postponed until this situation eases. Anyone interested in 2024 please contact me directly.   

I can honestly say that this is one of the most exotic locations I have ever been to and was so impressed by the wonderful people and extreme landscapes. This trip has a strong horse component as well as exploring all of the amazing wildlife and diverse landscape that Namibia is famous for. Watch the video that says it all!

This trip includes, Etosha Wildlife Park, The Skeleton Coast, Sossuvlei Dunes, Ghost Towns and the iconic Namib Horses. Our local guide is the incomparable Dr. Telane Greyling, zoologist, rider, and expert on the Namib horses. Her vast knowledge in this area comes from a lifetime of studying the horses and other wildlife, as well as being a partner in Namib Horse Safaris. She is our driver and guide for the entire trip as we travel in a luxury 4×4 stretch vehicle.

Day 1

Arrive in the capital city of Windhoek and short transfer to Moonraker Adventure camp for one night’s stay. The camp has a variety of domestic animals as well as game species like eland, wildebeest, oryx, impala etc.

Day 2

Drive 5 hours to Etosha National Park and have an afternoon shoot at the water hole. Etosha is world renowned for its elephant population and we will also expect to see rhino, zebra and many other game species here.

Day 3 and 4 

Will be spent at Etosha National Park. Etosha means “great white place” in the Ovambo language and refers to the ancient salt pans which dominate the area. These vast pans and savanna are traveled constantly by wildlife coming and going from grazing to water holes.

Day 5

Sunrise drive through Etosha and then proceeding on to drive through Uis and Hentiesbay arriving at Swakopmund on the Atlantic coast. Swakopmund is described as a ‘surreal remnant of Colonial times.

Day 6

Depending on the coastal weather we may take some horses for a ride in the dunes, or along the beach in the morning, and then take an aerial tour of the Skeleton Coast. The coast is stunning to view from the air, where sand meets sea!

Day 7

Depart the coast and drive through Namib Naukluft Park via Kuiseb Canyon to lunch at Soliter (4 hours) arrive early afternoon at Dune Star Camp on the dunes of the Namib Sand Sea. Sunset on dunes or at petrified dune cliffs. Here we can sleep under the stars by moving beds to outdoor balconies!

The Namib horses date back to the First World War when the South African Army camp was bombed by German planes. Thousands of horses at the camp were lost into the desert and evolved to survive the harsh climate. Their range is restricted by the only source of water at the old Garub train station which sees a constant flow of wildlife including ostrich, oryx and of course, the beautiful horses.
