At a glance

Get ready for a desert wonderland on this adventurous ride. From the great dune sea of the central Namib to the very edge of the stunning Sperrgebiet National Park, this ride covers very diverse desert terrain: immense grassy plains, signature inselbergs (island mountains), dunes and the rugged Tiras Mountain Reserve as a dramatic backdrop. This incomparable ride ends at Klein-Aus Vista, near the home of the wild horses of the Namib.

Desert-adapted game are encountered during the day, where open country with good going allows for some fast-paced riding. On the last day there is no riding, as you’ll visit the coastal town of Luderitz, explore the extraordinary ‘ghost town’ of Kolmanskop – the town the desert is ‘reclaiming’ – and encounter the wild horses of the Namib.

More information

Eat, ride, sleep, repeat. That’s the rhythm of this epic expedition through the Namib Desert. You’ll camp wild for eight nights with all the essential camp life luxuries: ice in your sundowners, hot bucket showers, delicious food around companionable campfires and incredible Milky Way views. Living with your horse 24/7 in wild, remote areas is a life-changing sensation and is most likely why these Namibian expeditions have such a high return rate. Close bonds are built with your fellow travel companions and four-legged friends as you live this adventure together.

The first night of the trip you’ll stay in a lodge near Windhoek. The last night is spent in a camp in Geistershlucht (Ghost Valley). Your luggage is transported in vehicles each day.

Fantastic horseback safari in Botswana! Everything was perfectly arranged from start to finish. If we had questions during the preparations, Laure-Anne was always there for us! An unforgettable experience with fantastic guides and staff, well-cared horses, super delicious food and much more. Everything met my expectations and more. Outside the Corral will definitely see me back for my future riding holidays!

Last week, I went to Monte Velho in Portugal with Outside the Corral. Simply great! Laure-Anne guided us well from the beginning and gave clear answers to all our questions. Even when she was at the airport herself, she helped us with our cancelled flight. Thanks again Laure-Anne!
Very nice experience! Laure-Anne makes all the time for you, discusses your wishes and then gives options that suit you. As a result, the trip suits the person booking it. But also afterwards, Laure-Anne is easy to reach for questions and thinks along with you. For example, my flight got changed and she immediately thought about how to solve the transfer. Also the personal aspect, with a message before your trip, but also checking in afterwards to see how your trip went. Makes it a nice and personal travel agency. And because she only offers riding holidays and visits them herself, she knows what she is selling. Laure-Anne, thanks again for the service and the fantastic trip I made thanks to you. I will definitely book here more often!
I highly recommend Outside the Corral as a partner for your next riding holiday. Laure-Anne understood our travel expectations very well and translated this in an attractive travel proposal. My questions at the start quickly became a non-issue thanks to Laure-Anne's expertise and the excellent guidance on site. OTC more than fulfilled its promise of a unique journey. I have already planned my next trip!
