About this tour
This is the Namib Desert, one of the oldest deserts in the world, a vast region of Southern Africa which has been dry for more than 50 million years. Day time temperatures at this time of year reach 35 degrees but as night begins to fall, and the sunset turns the landscape into something other worldly, the temperatures can drop to freezing.
You’re standing in baking heat and dust, surrounded on all sides by sand and scrubland. The Spitskoppe Mountains loom over you, bare rock rising nearly 2 kilometres from the desert floor. You’re a dot on the landscape as you stand on a trail that winds it’s way through the rocky ground around you and off into sand dunes that shimmer in the heat haze on the horizon.
This is the Desert Ultra.
