Namibia Sports & Outdoors

  • Football - the World's Game

    Soccer is a game that is known the world over. We were able to take a break from our safari excursions on the Chobi River to enjoy a game of soccer against the boys from the local middle school. It was a spirited effort from both teams, with the Old Dudes tying the score at 1 apiece on a dirt and sand field.

  • Quad bike/Sand boarding

    A MUST DO!When you inevitably end up in Swakupmund, do the quad bike/sandboarding trip. A 1 hour fast quad bike ride over the enourmous sand dunes of the Namib Desert, then flying head first for 600 yards at upto 60 km/ph down the dunes is one of the best things I've ever done.

It must have been about 1 km to cross the vlei to the dune at the end. All at once we noticed a group climbing on the dune, otherwise I'm not sure that we would have attempted it. We would certainly have...

  • Sand crazy...

    Sandboarding down the sand dunes. It is so much fun and falling over is the best part about it. There are also lots of other sand based sports such as quad biking and sand skiing. You have to wear closed toe shoes, but apart from this all other specialised equipment is provided.

  • Fish River Canyon hiking

    Here's the path down to the river where the longish hike starts. Only attempt it if you're really fit n strong.I just took it by plane...A few years ago some crazy guys thought themselves adventurous by racing down on scooter's. The wrecks are still there to be seen for a long time as nothing really rots in this climate. Sturdy boots, plenty of...
