8-21 Day Hiking and Overlanding
Hiking and overlanding in Namibia
You can have the best of both worlds. Hiking and overlanding Namibia. Please click here to see when we are doing this hike again.
Not only while you are overlanding in a 4x4 around Namibia; you can also do some amazing hiking in the Naukluft National park. This can be done from 4 up to 8 days long while experiencing some amazing desert life.
Consequently a hike on the highest mountains in Namibia, where the famous "White lady" bushman paintings are hidden in the Brandberg. The highest peak called Kanigstein and is 2573m above sea level. Considering the surrounding land is around 900m we have some amazing views from up there.
In between hikes we visit the Sossusvlei of the oldest desert in the world.
These dunes are found in the Namib which is over 50 million years old. While here we should probably hike the worlds highest dunes while camping in luxury at Sesreim on the edge of the Sossusvlei.
Also on our way to camp at Luderitz we might spot the amazing wild horses eking out a living in the sand. Most noteworthy is watching the sun rise over the Fish river canyon.
Not too far away from the Brandberg mountains are the Spitzkoppe or the Waterberg plateau for more amazing rock art and carvings. This is certainly a photographers dream.
If hiking and overlanding Namibia is not enough and you have time a visit to the neighboring country of Botswana should be considered. After hiking the Brandberg a change is good. We drive to the highest mountains in Botswana and experience the beautifully remote and wild Tsidilo hills. These are the spiritual center of Botswana and full of Bushman paintings.
