Tok Tokkie Trails
The Tok Tokkie Trails walking safari is a two-night/ three-day walking trail in the spectacular NamibRand Nature Reserve, 200 000 hectares of protected land where wildlife can roam free. The reserve's landscape varies from red sand dunes to sand and gravel plains and imposing mountains. It is also one of the few International Dark Sky Reserves in the world.
The Tok Tokkie walking trail is an opportunity to discover the Namib desert in a way that cannot be experienced when driving; a chance to see that the desert is not at all deserted. Guides will introduce you this unique world and its wildlife including Tok-Tokkie bettles, barking geckos, bat-eared foxes, dancing spiders and many more. The trail is a leisurely, fully guided, and fully catered desert walking safari. It allows you to get close to nature sleeping out under the stars, whilst still enjoying small luxuries such as 3 course dinners out in the dunes, hot water bucket showers and open air toilets with splendid vistas and a back-up team that will do all the chores for you so that you can relax and enjoy your surroundings.
The trails cater for between 2 and 8 guests allowing for personal attention and an opportunity to fully savour the vast and serene calmness of the desert. The pace is set to suit the group. Guests only need to bring 'worn in' light hiking boots as all other equipment is supplied and all meals and drinks are included. The trail itself is not difficult but it can be challenging where guests will walk for up to 7 or 8 hours a day carrying a day pack. It is recommended that guests prepare themselves beforehand with some fitness training as some of the routes lead through rough terrain and over sand dunes requiring well-balanced and secure walking. This once-in-a-lifetime experience allows you to walk over possibly the earth's oldest desert and to fall asleep under a galaxy of stars. If ever there is a moment to contemplate life, it's this.
