The Kalahari

Surrounded by the red dunes of the Kalahari, this newly built luxury farmhouse offers breathtaking and private views across the pan.

Steady mounts and comfortable saddles, riders will equally enjoy a relaxed pace and heart-pounding canters across red sands and grassy plains.

Days 3 - 6

Namibrand Nature Reserve
/ Zannier Hotels Sonop /

There is no better quiet luxury than that at Zannier's Sonop. Designed as a refined British colonial experience from the 1920’s, this out-of-the-ordinary lodge offers a perfect retreat in a stunning panoramic desert landscape.

Stunning stables and English saddles with expansive plains and mountainous backdrops. Head out for an hour or half a day. The choice is yours.

Days 6 - 9

/ The Strand Hotel /

The non-hotel, hotel with a residential and warm welcoming feel. Inviting fireplaces, expansive reception and ocean-view outlook.

/ The Riding /

Take to the beach for a salty gallop or head inland to the otherworldly feel of the moonscape terrain. Plenty of non-riding adventures await in this seaside town too.

Days 9 - 11

/ Camp Kipwe /

An intimate and remote bush lodge in. the starkly beautiful Twyfelfontein region, home to many ancient Bushman etchings. The 9 specially-designed rooms are unique and private, with outdoor bathroom, thatched roofs and spectacular views.


You'll swap the saddle for serene nature walks and exploration of the terrain in search of the elusive desert-dwelling Elephants who have adapted to the dry and sandy conditions of northern Namibia.

Days 11 - 13

Etosha, Northern Namibia
/ Onguma The Fort /

The Fort will surprise you at every corner; a classical African feel combined with a touch of Moroccan and Indian flavors, characterized by a selection of beautiful antique windows and doors.

Head out for a game drive in Etosha, a walking safari on the reserve, and spend the night under the stars with their custom-built dreamcruiser. 

Days 13 - 15

Barak, Central Namibia
/ Gmundner Lodge /

Gently nestled into the contouring landscape, twelve luxurious suites offer unrivalled comfort and seclusion against a backdrop of camelthorn trees, wild sage and an endless blue sky.
