Naukluft Hiking Trail
The 8 day Naukluft Hiking trail is one of the toughest experiences in Africa. Due to the extremely high summer temperatures, hikes are only possible from the 1st of March to the 31st of October. A hiking group must consist of 3 to 12 people. Open fires are not permitted and therefore, you must bring a gas cooker. Because it is a very dry area, you must fill up your waterbottle ((2 litres) every morning. The route leads through difficult terrain. A pair of hardy hiking boots is absolutely necessary. Some warm clothes are also strongly advised, since the temperatures in winter often drop below zero. The old farmhouse in the Naukluft can be used before and after the hike for an overnight stay. Here, beds, a kitchen, basic bathroom and an outside fireplace are supplied. If you want to spend more than one night there, you have to book a camping spot. During the hike you can rest in shelters made from stone and in a hut. These places offer running water and toilets.

The Naukluft offers hikers 2 more options:

Waterkloof Trail
It takes 6 to 8 hours and can be done all year round. The Waterkloof Trail starts at the Naukluft parking lot and is not guided. With a bit of luck you'll encounter Mountain Zebras, Baboons, Oryxes and Springboks.

Olive Trail
This hike takes 4 to 5 hours and can also be done all year (just follow the yellow footprints). The fee for the hike is included in the camping fee.
