We meet at Camp Twyfelfontein at 5:30pm, and have a 6pm briefing to get to know each other.
The fire will be ready after the briefing, and we will have a tasty braai (BBQ). Your camping and dinner are included.
We drive to our starting point at Burnt Mountain. To get into the swing of things, we start with a 16km walk. We walk along the rocky trail towards the Doros Crater and keep our eyes open for a chance encounter with a black rhino.
This is a medium day of walking. We have breakfast on the go and will reach our camp by lunchtime.
There is a mobile camp that moves with us every day. We are joined by a 2-man backup team; they alternate as camp managers and take care of all camp chores. They also create our nutritious and tasty meals.
The afternoons can get hot, but there is a 10m x 6m shade net that we use to escape from the sun.
I will walk with you until breakfast and we will look for tracks, fauna and flora. Thereafter, you will have time to walk on your own and meditate as you let nature fill your senses. However, I will not be far away in case you need anything.
We leave the Doros Crater behind us and head south towards the Goantagab River. It is an 18km walk on this day, on rocky terrain. It’s an amazing place to be!
This area has, by Namibian standards, a high black rhino population and the chance to see one of these illusive animals walking between watering holes increases.
We only walk as fast as the slowest walker. The idea of this walk is to leave your stress at home and spend some time with yourself. This is your time. Be nice to yourself and those walking with you.
In this wilderness area there are free roaming lion, elephant, rhino, leopard and cheetah. We rest overnight at Euphorbia Camp.
This area has no light pollution and the stars are fully visible and unbelievable to behold. The sunset at this camp lights up the Brandberg – it is a breathtaking view.
Today is our first downhill walk of 15km to Cheetah Camp.
The whole day we will be walking straight towards the Brandberg, which is a spectacular sight. We will have crossed the halfway point and your spirits will be high.
Our walk will be on lots of sand. On this day, we cross the Namibian Meseta.
The afternoon is your own leisure time, during which you can read, meditate, play chess, have a drink, or recover in the shade.
This is our final walking day, and the most magnificent. We drop down the mini-escarpment towards our breakfast tree. The terrain in this area is mostly gravel plains.
After breakfast, we stroll amongst the granite boulders before making our way down into the Ugab River for the last 5km. From there we will walk to the Brandberg White Lady Lodge. We have reached our goal, and the festivities begin from there.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before returning back home. Our food is simple but nutritious and yummy. We cater for all food requirements.
