Setting out on a Tok Tokkie Trail or Guided Desert Hike through the NamibRand Nature Reserve is a wonderful experience. The landscape is utterly fascinating and so varied. From mountainous terrain to sandy dunes, the trail is not difficult, but it is a challenge. Fortunately I was prepared, as I had done some fitness training beforehand. I had been warned about the heat. But heat aside, there are so many positives. Not only did I get up close with Namibia's stunning fauna and flora, but I got to sleep under a night sky literally bursting with stars. Really magical!
The Tok Tokkie Trail offers you the chance to view all kinds of wonderful animals, birds and insects, from big to small. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I can honestly say it was an unforgettable experience.
