Adventure Travel on Horseback


ATTA’s (Adventure Travel Trade Association) 2030 vision for Namibia is to firmly place Namibia on the map of one of the fastest growing industries in tourism - Adventure Travel. And for those who love horses, what better way of travel than from the back of a horse. From crossing the arid Namib desert in 8 days on horseback to an epic 1000 km long ride from Twyfelfontein to Luderitz, Namibia Horse Safari Company offers some of the most challenging riding safaris on the planet. Not for the feint-hearted!

Up to 70% of our guests have ridden with us multiple times so, always under pressure to come up with somewhere new and interesting to ride, we are always on the lookout. Namibia being a country of enormous diversity, this is not at all difficult, however consider that we must move up to 15 ton of equipment around every day, the logistics become a trifling mind-boggling.

Our first ‘new’ adventure – which has now become our Wild Horses Safari pitted riders to ride across 27 km of the Namib dune sea. Makes for an exciting ‘lost in the sand sea’ feel which is very exhilarating. Happily, a wrist-mounted GPS and Telane’s uncanny sense of direction saves us the trouble of getting lost.
