Description

The tour departs from Windhoek via Omaruru to Northwestern Namibia. From there we travel to the Palmwag Concession. An area off the more commonly driven tourist routes, includes the lava's of the Etendeka Plateau, Skeleton Coast , the northern dune sea and the linear oasis's, the Hoanib, Hoarusib and Khumib rivers. In and near these rivers, one finds an abundant supply of wild animals including elephants and lions. We cycle on the Palmwag concession where we should encounter many different species of wild animals. The bizarre and unique flora is captivating and beautiful. The landscapes are of a long ago lava flow that has created a unique stone desert filled with many small mountains. The northwest is home to the famous free roaming black rhinocerous that are increasing their numbers in this lovely nature area. Onwards and westwards we cycle into the Gamatub valley on the way to the isolated Hoanib River winding it's way into the Skeleton Coast Park . On the desolate gravel plains of the Skeleton Coast we cycle to Purros on the Hoarusib River , home to a large number of desert adapted elephants. From here onwards, we regularly come across the Himba people who are the �owners� of Kaokoland. The trip over the Khumib Pass , between the Hoarusib and Khumib Rivers is breathtaking on our bikes. Thereafter we finally reach the colorful capital of Kaokoland, Opuwo , with it's many people's and it's welcoming african chaos, via Kaoko Otavi .
