The Naukluft Trail Namibia Hike

Naukluft Hiking Trail Namibia

Naukluft Hiking Trail Namibia

This incredible 8 day Naukluft trail Namibia hike is done in the Naukluft National Park mountains of central Namibia and we do it every July. Naukluft means narrow ravine in German and is a well known hikers destination. We can only do the hike between March and Oct as it is too hot in the middle of summer. My favorite time is in August. After the 8 day hike we visit the biggest dunes in the world at Sossusvlei. There is a small restaurant there and then a 45 min drive to stay at https://www.tsauchab.com/  . Here is a video I made of one of my Naukluft hikes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDLKZF-oMJw

Most days we spend around 6-7 hrs walking and often follow Zebra paths.

Hopefully we see some of them as well as Gemsbok, Springbok and Kudu. 7 Black rhino were introduced in 2007, last time we were very lucky to see one  of them. On our last Naukluft Hike we spotted a bunch of Spotted hyena. Before the hike we camp at the Naukluft camp site, as the hike is a circular route.  On the actual hike our nights we sleep in simple stone huts. YAY, no tents! Water is available at the overnight huts via a hand pump but we need to carry at least 3 liters each during the day. Click here to see how to prepare for your hike.

Most people fly to Windhoek.

This saves people 2 full days of driving so we pick them up there and then it is a 4 hour drive to the start of the hike. The other option is to drive with us from Pietermaritzburg or Johannesburg. As it is just 8 days long we drive on to Sesriem for an hour after the hike. If we have come all this way we should at least spend some time seeing the amazing dunes of the Sossusvlei.

Here we get to walk up some of the biggest dunes in the world and watch the sun rise. Unbelievable. We spend the day here checking out the Sesriem canyon and a walk to Dead Vlei. After all this fun we camp again at Tsauchab  and the last day is a 3 hour drive back to Windhoek airport. So there you go. The incredible Naukluft trail Namibia.
