Day 1 | Arrival at Tok Tokkie base – NamibRand Nature Reserve

Walking time approx. 1-2 h

Arrival should be by 14:00 h at the Tok Tokkie base. While you wait for all the fellow travellers to arrive and check in, you can enjoy some refreshments. You will be given a small backpack for personal items that you would like to carry with you on the walk. Your luggage will be transferred by vehicle to the overnight camp. Enjoy a scenic drive and get to know your fellow travellers as you are transferred to the starting point of the Tok Tokkie Trail. To get to your first camp, you will walk over hills covered by the mysterious ‘fairy circles’ and climb some of the rolling sand dunes. These dunes are covered in vegetation and are smaller than the massive dunes at Sossusvlei, yet just as amazing to explore.  Watch the sun as it slowly disappears behind the dunes and relax with a drink, while your dinner is being prepared. Enjoy a 3-course dinner, served in the dunes, and fall asleep under the crystal clear night sky listening to the silence.


Day 2 | NamibRand Nature Reserve

Walking time approx. 6-7 h

An early wake up is necessary today to ensure you depart in the cool of the early morning. There will be tea and coffee available while your light breakfast is being prepared. Today’s highlights include breathtaking views of the dunes and plains. Let one of the oldest deserts come alive, while you smell, taste and feel your surroundings. On today’s route you might spot some of the desert’s special golden moles, dancing white ladies, barking geckos, dune larks or flightless wasps. After a delicious lunch prepared by the staff, there will be plenty of time for you to relax in the shade or to enjoy a siesta while you wait for the heat of the day to recede. Once you have filled up your water bottle, you head further into the dunes. A sea of endless dunes, covered in ‘fairy circles’ against a backdrop of mountain scenery, provides a spectacular photo opportunity as the sunlight slowly disappears, creating an ever-changing palette of colours. Enjoy a cool drink and reflect on all you have seen today before enjoying another feast set up by the staff amongst the dunes.

Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner

Day 3 | NamibRand Nature Reserve – Return to Tok Tokkie base

Walking time approx. 3-3.5 h

Today you will be woken up once more in the soft light shortly before sunrise. Enjoy the view of the rolling dunes with a cup of coffee or tea. After a delicious breakfast, you will set off on an easy walk back to the Tok Tokkie farmhouse, through soft dune fields, interspersed by camelthorn trees. You are expected to arrive there at about 11:30. If time permits, you have the opportunity to visit the ‘Namib Desert Environmental Educational Trust’, a non-profit and donor sponsored trust aiming to develop environmentally responsible citizens in Namibia.
