From Twyfelfontein (tway’full-fon’tayn) to Cape Cross on the Skeleton Coast, the sheer remoteness of this challenging horse riding safari makes it unsuitable for inexperienced riders since encounters with Elephant, Rhino and even Lion are possible. On the other hand, this could be the most thrilling riding adventure of your life!
From Windhoek (win’took) back to Windhoek: 11 days, 10 nights, 8 riding days; 2 lodge-based nights (first and last nights), 8 nights camping.
Arrive in Windhoek on first day of your horse riding safari in time for pre-dinner group meeting and arrive back at Windhoek International Airport on last day of the trail in time for flights leaving after 15:00 (please be aware that Namibia has a minus 1-hour daylight time saving from April to September) Make sure your departure flight times are local time.
Days begin at sunrise; departure is generally by 8am with 4 - 5 hours riding before lunch. Lunch breaks are an hour to 2 ½ hours followed by another 2 – 3 hours riding in the afternoon
We can average anything from 20 – 50 km riding per day, all paces, sometimes over rough terrain. Please note that this is a desert so routes can change due to unpredictable weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
The truck does not accompany the backup for days 4 – 6 so packing two smaller bags instead of one large one is advantageous. Please use only soft luggage of no more than 20 kg per person.
Please enquire for the option to fly-in to the start of the ride at Twyfelfontein and at the end of the ride from Cape Cross or Walvis Bay.
Because of the remoteness of our rides it is essential that riders ensure they are covered for emergency evacuation.
