Kaokoland Odyssey including Red Dunes & Sossuvlei – April 2018
April 11, 2018 @ 8:00 am - April 24, 2018 @ 8:00 am
Kaokoland. The last unspoiled paradise in Africa and the no.1 adventure riding destination in the world. This trip includes two extra days visiting the famous Dead Vlei and Red Dunes at Sossusvlei.
We meet in Windhoek, Capital of Namibia, collect our motorcycles and prepare for the next morning tour start. The ten day circular journey takes us north west, up to and along the Kunene River before returning to Windhoek via Swakopmund. Highlights include visits to Epupa Falls, Marienfluss Valley, Camp Syncro, Van Zyls Pass, Purros Canyons, Marble Camp and Brandberg Mountain to name a few. Expect to find herds of free range game , giraffe, and elephant sharing the tracks we ride and even the possibility of lions.We’ll meet the nomadic indigenous Himba people, the women famed for the ochre mud covering they paste onto their bodies and their unique hair plaits. The riding is engaging and varies from steep rocky passes, sandy two tracks , wide open desert plains and more, sometimes all in one day. There is a genuine feeling of warmth towards travellers in Northern Namibia and virtually no crime. Kaokoland really is the last unspoiled paradise in Africa.
Tour package includes all fuel, back-up vehicle, 2 x nights accommodation in Windhoek, 2 x nights accommodation in Swakopmund, 7 days bed & breakfast in the wilderness + selected meals (in remote areas without available lodges), basic bike spares, satellite phone, and experienced rider guide.
