The Brandberg Camino is part of our Namibia Walking Tours

The Brandberg Camino is a fully-catered, 8-day slackpacking wilderness trail around the entirety of the Brandberg. The Brandberg is Namibia’s highest mountain. The terrain is varied: we walk through savannah grassland, fields of small rocks, the desolation of western Brandberg, and the river bed. We start and end at Brandberg White Lady Lodge, and the trail is approximately 125km long. We walk during the cooler morning hours and relax during the hottest hours – the staff team puts up a large shade net for you to relax under in the afternoons. There are 8 days of walking. Day 1: arrival and dinner, day 2: 17km, day 3: 17km, day 4: 17km, day 5: 17km , day 6: 17km, day 7: 19km, day 8: 19km, and day 9: breakfast and return home.

We have a 3-man team of support staff that will assist with tents and all camp chores while you walk. The Camino is a glamping experience, so it includes 2-man dome tent, camping bed, mattress, mattress cover, sleeping bag and pillow. The back-up vehicles transport your luggage from one camp to the next, so you just carry your daysack. We include all camping equipment and provide you with 3 meals a day made with LOVE. We cater for carnivores and herbivores.

Brandberg Camino

We meet at 5pm on day 1 and have a welcome braai (BBQ) and Camino briefing at Brandberg White Lady Lodge. All 8 nights’ accommodation are included. We camp at Brandberg White Lady Lodge on day 1 and day 8. In between are 6 nights of wild camping in Damaraland. On day 9 breakfast is included, and you can then leave at your leisure.

The staff team (George, Steve & myself) will be on 24hr standby should you need anything. I carry a GPS tracker and messaging system with a SOS button in case we need help.

At each wild camp along the way, the team will construct a desert bathroom and shower facility. They are screened off for your privacy but have an amazing desert view!

Your friends and family can also follow our progress on the link on this page.

A shuttle can be arranged from Windhoek-Damaraland-Windhoek if there are enough guests – please let us know if you are interested. Otherwise, you can leave your vehicle at Brandberg White Lady Lodge for the duration of the Camino. We will shuttle you to the start and your vehicles will then be there at the end.

    Our Other Caminos

    We meet on Day 1 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.
