Day 1

We meet at Goanikontes at 4pm and shuttle you to the starting point of our hike in the Khan River.

You only walk with a day bag as your luggage gets transported to the overnight camp. It is an easy 5km walk today to our wild camp in the Khan River.

We have a welcome braai (BBQ) and enjoy the summer evening in the Namib desert. Feel free to bring drinks (we will provide cooler boxes and ice). We cater for all meal requirements and supply all camping equipment including mattresses and tents.

The camp will be set up by the backup team, so you can really enjoy yourself, enjoy your drinks and the beautiful atmosphere of this amazing camp area.

Day 2

We enjoy coffee and rusks at first light before we head down the Khan River. The rock formations are truly a sight to behold as we admire the sunrise. Breakfast is served under a Camelthorn tree, and we take care of all logistics.

Today is a manageable 12km and the emphasis is on peace and tranquility. We look for fauna and flora during our trail and explore the rock formations.

Lunch will be served at our second camp, and the afternoon is spent relaxing/birdwatching/chatting, or spending time with your hiking friends and like-minded people.

We enjoy a sundowner before a well-deserved braai. Tonight we hope to see the stars sparkle or make objects from the shadows of the moon. We overnight at the confluence of the Khan and Swakop Rivers.

Day 3

With sunrise, we kick off again after having morning coffee and rusks. Today we hike down the Swakop river to Goanikontes and experience again the beauty of Namibia and the Namib desert.

Let your soul breathe, and fill up your energy level by reconnecting with nature. It’s a lovely 12km walk and we will enjoy a tasty and nutritious breakfast on the route. By late morning we arrive at Goanikontes and the end of our experience.
