Our Other Caminos

We meet on 23rd of September 2022 at the Brandberg White Lady Lodge for a welcome drink and meal. We get to know each other and have our walk briefing. This walk is not as easy as you might think. We can’t get too close to the mountain as it has a lot of gorges So, we will find a route through these areas and often camp in riverbeds or sandy gorges. There will be days where we cannot stop until we hit these areas. There are just too many rocks. However, the gods are smiling on us and the riverbeds is on average 16km apart.

There Is Elephant, Lion, Leopard and Rhino in the Ugab and Brandberg West. So, we will stay together, and safety is of foremost importance.

It is an 8 day walk with the last day being a short day. 1st October.

I have chosen to walk clockwise, and we do an average of 16km/day. I will wake you up early and we will be walking at sunrise. Breakfast is at 6km each morning. It is a fully catered and backed up Camino, so you only walk with your day bag. The Camp staff will take care of everything else.

Brandberg Camino

With the Brandberg being a round mountain we will see a different Sunrise and sunset daily. We will see views of the Numas, Amis and Klein Numas gorges and of course the Ugab could produce anything. I see the springbok and ostrich are back. We will do a day’s walking up the Ugab river and walk down the Ugab terrace. There will be no moon so we will be in for some amazing night skies.

We recommend downloading a sky map app on your phone.

Each 2,1m x 2,1m x 2,1m tent has two camp beds, two mattresses, two sleeping bags and two pillows.

There will be an enclosed shower cubicle and chemical toilet. You will have total privacy.
