Activities that can be booked here including a desert tour, day trips to Luderitz and Kolmanskop and scenic sunset drives. There are also hiking and mountain biking trails to explore independently.

The following possibilities are available from this property:
Accompanied by an expert guide, you will travel through Gondwana Sperrgebiet Park learning more about its flora and fauna. This is the most bio-diverse desert on earth and you will discover its landscapes of granite mountains, dry riverbeds and sweeping plains. You may also see some wild horses the area is famous for.
There are various hiking trails catering for both beginners and experienced hikers, taking in the scenic Aus Mountains and the flora and fauna of the Succulent Karoo Desert. All trails are marked with differently coloured arrows and at every starting there is an information kiosk with detailed maps and information. Permits for the walks need to be purchased at the Desert Horse Inn reception and these funds go towards conservation.
Riding a Namibian-bred horse across the vast desert landscape is an unforgettable experience.
Mountain biking is an excellent way to experience Namibia’s scenic beauty. There are several different trails catering for intermediate to advanced mountain bikers and will guide you through the wild romantic scenery of the Aus Mountains in Gondwana Sperrgebiet Rand Park and the neighbouring Kubub Farm.
