“Spending three days and two nights in the great outdoors is a very special experience and probably unlike any holiday you’ve ever experienced. There are no walls, not even canvas, nothing separates you from the natural world around you. Curling up in your sleeping bag and watching a million stars twinkle above you – I personally think it doesn’t get much better than that.”

Tour Itinerary

Small group hiking tour | minimum 2, maximum 8 people

On the Tok Tokkie Trail, you hike through one of the most picturesque areas of the Namib Desert – from rugged mountainous terrain to golden shimmering sand dunes. You overnight in an open-air camp in the middle of the desert which will be set up for you at two different locations. Sleeping in the open is certainly a highlight on this trip. You should be able to walk for several hours at a time, but don’t have to be an athlete to join this tour.

Camping setup on the Tok Tokkie Trail

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

Walking time approx. 1-2 h

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. Pack 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. Your tour starts with visiting the ‘Namib Desert Environmental Educational Trust’, a non-profit and donor sponsored trust aiming to develop environmentally responsible citizens in Namibia. Thereafter, enjoy a scenic drive 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.

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 colors. Enjoy a cool drink and reflect on all you have seen today before enjoying another feast set up by the staff amongst the dunes.
