South of Namibia Bike Tour

The South is one of the most scenic areas in Namibia. To explore all the beauty of the South we have put together a beautiful lodging/glamping tour. 

The scenery in the South is very different in scenery than the rest of the country. It’s here where you will find the Fish River Canyon, the largest canyon in the southern hemisphere and the second largest canyon in the world. The South of Namibia was made for adventure riding offering you some of the best scenery, lodges and adventure riding you can get. 

Spoil yourself to a great holiday with us in the South of Namibia where you can ride your bike and relax while we take care of the rest.

Close to Luderitz you find the  ghost town of Kolmanskop is another attraction of this area. The town originated during the diamond boom and in the 30’s after World War One started declining until it became a ghost town as richer diamond fields were found elsewhere. During our visit to Kolmanskop a guide will take you through the history of the town and its people. Afterwards you will be able to explore the town in your own time.

Another gem of the South is Sossusvlei, probably Namibia’s most famous and popular tourist attraction. The setting is just spectacular. It is characterised by huge red sand dunes covering a large area of the Namib desert. The red dunes are best visited during sunrise or sunset when the glow of the sun gives the dunes it’s deep red and ochre colours. It’s a unique breathtaking spectacle every day. These are only a few of the attractions you will see on our tour of the South of Namibia bike tour.

What do you do……? You ride your bike and enjoy an awesome Namibian bike tour with us.

Intermediate to Advanced – This bike tour is not for beginners to adventure biking. The route is a proven one that we have done many times. It consists mainly of solid pack dirt roads but sections can change quickly to thick loose gravel and sandy spots. The road conditions depends on the amount of traffic, rain and when last it was graded. It is therefore essential that if you come on this tour that you are able to handle a bit of loose stuff here and there. That being said there is nothing to fear as we have safely guided many intermediate riders through this route before. 

As an intermediate rider you should be comfortable riding at least 80KM/H on solid pack dirt roads where road conditions allow this. We stop on a regular basis and guide you through potential difficult sections, so no need to rush. You ride at the speed that you are comfortable at.
