Desert Night Walk

Most of the creatures in the Namib are nocturnal, come observe them with us on this unique and exciting desert ‘night’ tour

We offer a night walk to the Namib’s gravel plains where you will be shown the desert-adapted nightlife – concentrating on the various species of Gecko, Spiders, Gerbils, and Scorpions. During the day the desert looks inhospitable, unfriendly, devoid of any animal life, but once the sun sets, the plains turn into a playground for various creatures.

This Desert Night Walk offers a glimpse into the nocturnal theatre of this unique ecosystem. 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 critters. This walk starts from near the Rossmund Lodge where a short walk across the Swakopmund River will take you to the desolate gravel plains to the south.
