This is an unforgettable, active adventure exploring remote northern Namibia by Mountain bike. Our five-night expedition takes us through the spectacular 450,000 hectare private Palmwag concession in Damaraland. We will spend 3 nights in the wildest of locations, mobile camping under the stars in this extraordinary landscape.
Days are spent on the mountain bike navigating our way through spectacular scenery and past the onlooking denizens of the desert. Distances and time in the saddle is fully adaptable to our guest’s fitness levels – our support team with vehicles, bike trailers, bike mechanic and full cooler box are a radio call away.
In the afternoons, after settling into our new camp, we’ll walk into natural springs looking for wildlife and, where possible, track black rhino to view on foot. We may also encounter lion, elephant and hyena amongst other mammals.
The private mobile camp is fully serviced with simple dome tents, bucket showers and an amazing camp crew that prepare delicious, simple meals while making sure that you will enjoy an ice-cold beer and a G & T at the end of every day.
For the final two nights we’ll bike into one of Africa’s unique safari camps, Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp, overlooking the eponymous river valley as it cuts through the surrounding Kaokoveld mountains. We’ll safari drive and walk to explore the geographical highlights of the Skeleton coast and its desert adapted inhabitants including elephant, springbok, oryx, cheetah, giraffe, brown hyena, jackal, leopard and lion.
