Fog-basking Tok Tokkie beetles, barking geckos, dancing spiders, bat-eared foxes, and many more – the desert is not deserted at all.

Tok Tokkie trail - 2 nights in NamibRand Reserve

Vast and eternal, but also picturesque and enchanting, NamibRand Nature Reserve embraces its visitor. The Reserve is a model for private conservation and low-impact tourism of about 200.000 hectares of protected area where wildlife can once again roam free. Livestock farms have been restored to their former pristine state boasting the full biodiversity of the Pro-Namib ecosystem

On foot is the best way to feel the desert as you can experience the amazing details personally and in your own time. Walking here induces the mind to relax, allowing you to fully immerse into the magic of the world around you.

Day 2

Early morning tea or coffee is served before sunrise followed by a light breakfast so that you can set off in the cool of the early morning. The highlights of the walk are the breath-taking views of the dunes and plains as well as the “coming alive” of the desert as the guide allows you to feel, smell, taste and see the oldest living desert in the world. The “morning news”, as written in the sand is always fascinating and with some luck and the guide’s trained eyes, you may spot some of the desert specials (golden mole, dancing white lady, barking gecko, dune lark, flightless wasp just to name a few). You walk over a mountain saddle before descending gently to a dry riverbed.
