- Magnificent and diverse landscapes
- Cycling past the world's highest sand dunes
- Wildlfe of Etosha National Park
Namibia is a vast country with wide open spaces and massive, endless skies. Sand dunes gradually turn into granite hills, whilst rocky outcrops with ancient paintings give way to vast plains where elephants, giraffes and lions roam.
Travelling through the wilderness from behind the handlebar is, undoubtedly, one of the best ways of experiencing the varied landscape of this desert nation.
Discover the country's highlights on two wheels and go on game drives in one of southern Africa's best game reserves, Etosha National Park.
Combining the sense of freedom of exploring by bike with the sense of adventure of an overland truck, to cover large distances, this trip mixes Namibia's breathtaking scenery with its fantastic game viewing opportunities.
What makes this trip responsible?
On this trip we use local guides and stay in local lodges as well as park authority lodge/campsitess (where the money gets used for wildlife conservation) and community-owned campsites. When cooking meals we buy locally produced food. On this trip we visit the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF), a charity set up to research cheetahs and educate the public, with the aim of protecting this magnificent cat and it's habitat.
We will meet the centre's resident cheetahs (who cannot be released into the wild) and learn about the conservation efforts taking place in Namibia at the education centre and museum.
Exodus supports the WSPA's efforts to ban commercial seal hunting in Namibia.
Recycling is still uncommon in Africa but on this trip we recycle all glass, plastic and aluminium we use by collecting it and depositing it in the three recycling depots available in Namibia from where it gets taken to a large recycling centre in Windhoek.
