Treks, Safaris and Mobile Adventures in Nambia

Namibia is a supremely beautiful, sparsely populated country, offering endless opportunities to completely get away from it all, and revel in a dramatic landscape that is unique in Southern Africa, and virtually unequalled in the world. The red dunes at Sossousvlei arguably provide the most iconic image of Namibia’s terrain, and the country’s southern circuit taking in the vlei, the Fish River Canyon and the Namib Naukluft National Park is a great introduction to Namibia’s awe-inspiring landscape.  With the exception of Etosha Pan, the Skeleton Coast, and southern Damaraland, the north of the country, particularly the Koakoveld, is much less discovered and remote, although some of Namibia’s most exceptional lodges exist up here.

Tailor-made travel

Traverse Line arranges tailor-made travel across Namibia, especially tours that have a more adventurous and exploratory nature in remoter regions, lead by highly experienced and personable guides, or to more intimate, less well known destinations, such as Mundulea Reserve and Bush Camp, which we rate very highly.  We have access to a wide range of accommodation across the country, and are experts at designing itineraries that encompass safaris, fully mobile guided camping safaris in remote areas, wildlife walks, trekking and general self-drive touring.  Where possible, we try very hard to get you off the main tourist routes, and discover Namibia in less obvious ways, eg, visiting Sossusvlei on a four day camping safari, that enables you to discover the Naukluft away from others, and walk in to the vlei itself rather than drive.

Trekking in Namibia

Namibia is not well known as a hiking destination, but there are some excellent hikes on offer.  The Fish River Canyon is perhaps the best known trekking destination in Namibia, and a good way to experience the Canyon is to hike on fully supported Mule Trails, on which you carry no more than a day pack. Other well known hikes in the Southern part of Namibia exist in the Naukluft Mountains, and the Tok-Tokkie desert trail in the Namib Rand Reserve provides a unique insight into desert life.

But it doesn’t end there.  Indeed, we think that some of the best walking in Namibia exists in the remoter, northern reaches of the country - the Brandberg mountains in Damaraland provide good opportunities for short treks in very arid mountain terrain, but looking further north, walking gets particularly interesting; in northern Damaraland and the Kaokoveld, it's possible to combine exciting walks with wildlife encounters, exploring dry river beds and canyons which are corridors for wildlife seeking food and water.  These walks are best accessed on a mobile camping safari.
