Namibia is traditionally known for its incredible desert scenery and epic landscapes rather than walking safaris.
However there are in fact a wide range of walking possibilities throughout Namibia and many desert camps and lodges will offer walking as an alternative to vehicle exploration.
In the Namib Desert region serious walkers would love the unique Tok Tokkie Trails experience which explores the desert ecosystem and includes two nights camping out under the stars. The walking is not especially strenuous, though it can be hot at certain times of year and some sections are through the dunes.
In northern Damaraland it is possible to track desert rhino across the rocky landscape of the Palmwag Concession whilst staying at Desert Rhino Camp, whilst in the deep south, the Fish River Canyon offers (during winter months only) experienced hikers the chance to join multi-day trails exploring the harsh environment of the canyon.
However, for more traditional walking safaris in more wildlife orientated areas, two of the best options are Etendeka Mountain Camp in the rugged wilderness of northern Damaraland, and Mundulea Nature Reserve near the Otavi Mountains to the south-east of Etosha, where the superb guiding and personal bush experience offered by owner and host Bruno Nebe is a real draw.
