Activities at Eagle's Nest
Day trip to Lüderitz and Kolmanskop
Lüderitz is just 120 km away and the ghost town of Kolmanskop only 115 km (tar road). Klein-Aus Vista is the ideal starting point for a trip to both places. Only 20 km from Aus, on the way to or back from Lüderitz, visit the Garub water hole where the wild horses and several other animals of the desert plains can be found. The Wild Horses of the Namib have roamed this harsh habitat since 1915 and are an experience one should not miss.
Desert Tour (morning and afternoon departures)
Discover the delights of the desert: guided tours through the impressive scenery of the Succulent Karoo desert.
Hiking Trails / Mountain Bike Trails
If you want to explore the flora and fauna of the Succulent Karoo desert on your own you have five different hiking trails to choose from. They are well marked and take you through the wildly romantic scenery of the Aus Mountains. Duration: between 2 and 5 hours
There is a choice of different routes on well-marked trails, varying from 18 km to 35 km - mostly single track trails - recommended for riders with intermediate skills. Dual suspension bikes available for rent.
Scenic Sunset Drive
These drives in the late afternoon present an opportunity to experience the incredible scenic beauty of Gondwana Sperrgebiet Rand Park at dusk. (min. 3 persons per excursion)
