Hiking Trails - Namibia

guided & unguided hiking trails

For the energetic traveler there can be no better way to explore Namibia than on foot. We offer a selection of guided and unguided hiking trails catering for everyone from the hardened hiker to the inexperienced (but enthusiastic) couch potato. Most of the longer unguided hikes require a minimum of three participants and at present there is no system in place to pair single travellers up with other groups. Luckily if you are travelling solo or as a couple, nearly all the un-guided hikes have a corresponding guided version.

We've compiled a list of hiking equipment and other information which may be helpful in planning your hike.
