At the end of our two week safari we came to the Tok Tokkie Trail, met our guide for these three days and two nights and started off onto the dunes. Our first day was a short one, just the late afternoon ending in our first camp where we got to see what our 'room' looked like for the night.... More

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed their 4 wheel drive track a chance to see the scenery in changing light magnificent at the ends of the day.... More

Namibian Horse back Safaris are an excellent company that made our week so very special. Run by Meagan and Andrew Gillespie - who went out of their way to give us all a once in a lifetime experience. The horses were fantastic and well paired to each rider. Wolwedans Boulders camp is spectacular and the landscape riding out is vast,... More

Like nothing I've ever seen, the colors and shapes are breathtaking. It's hot as it is desert. We spotted zebras, springboks, oryx, and birds. Spectacular

We walked the three day two night TokTokkie trail in the reserve and it was a fantastic experience. We were accompanied by our guide Sebastian who is one of the more special human beings we have met and ably backed up by Frans and Belinda as the team who transported things and made us some wonderful food in the middle...

Very beautiful area, perfect for walking and relaxing. Spent ten days in the area and it is very enjoyable! Sunrise and sunset - the colors, the animals, - well worth a visit!

Loved the dramatic scenery, sunrise on the dunes, nature in a raw state. Too hot for mid-day hiking.

Havenly experience. Scenic landscapes with nature touching the heart. Wildlife is at its best. I would like to go again & again. Very rightly listed by UNESCO also as heritage.

The 3 day 2 night trail covers a lot of walking on sand.... Not all of our group made the whole trip due to illness and the organisers were helpful in transporting us between places, though you do need to be patient as old vehicles meant some delays. The surprises included excellent three course meals with table clothes etc amongst... More
