Most itineraries involve camping under star-filled skies, but there are some options with more comfortable accommodation.

Safaris in Namibia
Namibia is a land of contrasts and offers some spectacular options for riding safaris and trail rides. From the stunning dunes at Sossusvlei to the desolate wonder of the Skeleton coast; the dramatic canyons of Fish River and the vastness of the Namib desert, there are horseback rides to amaze you. Namibia is best suited to competent or experienced riders, who can make full benefit of the wide open spaces and spirited horses.
One of our most challenging trail rides is the Namib Desert trail - 400km across the desert to the coast at Swakopmund, camping every night, this one is for experienced and adventurous riders only.
To hopefully view wild Namibian horses and the second largest canyon in the world, choose the Fish River Canyon ride. With some camping nights and some comfortable nights this trail ride is a great option.
If you wish to view desert adapted species such as black rhino, elephant, and oryx, then the starkly beautiful Damaraland trail ride will hopefully deliver....
For a more traditional riding safari, viewing giraffe, zebra, various antelope and white rhino, then choose Okapuka - and experience the thrill of riding an Arabian horse too.
You can also try your hand at Endurance riding in an actual competition on endurance horses owned and trained by Okapuka - a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
