Desert Canyons Safari


Desert Canyons Safari
Namibia Namibia

The Fish River Canyon is an impressive geological feature, a natural gorge revealing the Earth’s history laid out like the pages of a book. Despite its seeming aridity, this extraordinarily diverse biome is a delight for nature lovers. Expansive plains invite endless canters in a landscape characterized by meandering gorges and dramatically eroded escarpments.

The terrain dictates a slower start to this riding safari, so this ride is suitable for intermediate and advanced riders. From young spirited horses filled with ambition to older reliable ones who have done these trails countless times, there is a horse for everyone! The horses are raised with care and trained with a gentle hand. There are even some rescues who have been offered a second chance at life and eager to please!

Days are spent exploring the remote desertlands, seemingly untouched by humans. Namibia has given its communities the opportunity and rights to manage their wildlife through commercial conservancies, allowing you to reap the benefits of exploring true wilderness areas. You will be educated on the fragility of the desert and the conservation programs set in place. Sleep under the starts each night and experience the wonder of the universe. In simplicity, life reveals its beauty. From the northern reaches of the Fish River Canyon to the Orange River, this is a spectacularly diverse wonderland! What are you waiting for?
