Get out of town for a morning walk and join us as we hike through riverbeds, valleys and hills at the foot of the Auas Mountains on the Moonraker farm, situated only 30 minutes from Windhoek. In addition to the beautiful scenery, your guide will teach you about the local flora and fauna. If you’re lucky, you can spot wildlife such as kudu, gemsbok or red hartebeest and even some birds. After our hike, we enjoy a light brunch in the beautiful and lush green garden area, and enjoy the scenery for one last time before heading back to Windhoek.
Departing from Windhoek we make our way out to Moonraker Adventure Camp, surrounded by the Auas Mountains
Our 8kms hike takes us approximately 3 hours as we make our way along the specially designed trail, taking in not only the incredible scenery, but also learning about the flora and fauna that we see. Our trail takes us in circular loop and we arrive back at our vehicle after our morning walk. From here, we enjoy a light brunch and enjoy the scenery for one last time before heading back to Windhoek.
Word Of Mouth
I would highly recommend this activity to anyone staying in the Windhoek area. Beene was a friendly and knowledgable guide who provided lots of information on the flora and fauna of the local region. She also has a hawk eye for spotting all of the animals/game! The group size ensures it remains personal with opportunities to ask questions. The duration of the hike and the terrain were pleasant and manageable.
This was a 6.5km hike through (at this time of year) dry bush. Our knowledgeable and friendly guide stopped several times to talk about the various plants and animals we saw. We had sightings of warthog, oryx and some other antelope species. Although the walk isn’t long, there are some steep, but short, gradients, and a few places where the trail is quite rocky. A decent pair of walking shoes is recommended.
