During the day the desert looks inhospitable, unfriendly, devoid of any animal life, but once the sun sets, the sand turns into a playground for all kinds of animals. Most of the creatures in the Namib are nocturnal and can be observed only after dark. The Night walk offers a glimpse into the nocturnal theatre of this unique eco-system. After dark, the seemingly barren Namib gravel plains come to life and we help you discover these little nocturnal wonders. The walks provide a truly amazing educational experience of the little-seen nocturnal creatures.
This walk starts from near the Rossmund Lodge where a short walk across the Swakop River will take you to the desolate gravel plains to the south. It is advisable to have dinner before the walk but this can also be arranged by the Rossmund lodge to have dinner after the walk.
We can arrange to pick you up at your accommodations in Swakopmund where you will be returned after the walk at an additional cost of N$100 per group.
