Namibia is an exciting country to visit offering lasting memories. Cycling is a great way to see any country, especially in Africa which has different challenges to other parts of the world. It is an easy cycle if you are competent on dirt roads; early starts are necessary to avoid the extreme heat after 10.30am. A big country necessitating some lengthy bus tranfers which can be a bit monotonous.
One of the most memorable trips I've done - challenging, inspiring and fun! If you love remote places, fascinating scenery and wildlife, and don't mind early mornings and some tough cycling, then you will love this trip.
Beautiful desert scenery to cycle through, everyday slightly different. Some hard going on the bikes with a lovely meal at the end .
Seeing real wild animals at the water holes just yards from you.
Camping under starry sky's and listening to the noises of the night.
I thought after the first day of cycling I was going to hate this trip, but it got much much better. Being on the ground cycling through the dunes or with a random zebra crashing through a fence and bounding across the road in front of you is an amazing experience. Well worth the sometimes challengin cycling.
