Tok Tokkie Trails review

One of the highlights of our trip. Extremely professionally organised and well guided. Spectacular scenery.

Sleeping under the stars for 2 nights in the sand dunes was very special.

THE experience in Namibia

Tok tokkie trails is the best way to enjoy Namib Desert. You get to see it with expert guides and with an excellent service. Of course you must understand you will sleep under the stars and you won't stay in luxurious camps, but while essential, the camps are surprisingly comfortable.
Food is home prepared and really excellent, a great attention is put in details.
The sky in the desert nights is filled with star, and it's a sight you can't forget easily.
After this experience, Sossusvlei was not-so-special for us (it's amazing, but it feels over crowded). I wouldn't miss this experience for any reason!

Desert camping

We were hoping this was going to be a highlight of our trip and we were not wrong. Domingo was a great guide and the other guests (there were 8 of us in total) proved to be excellent company. It was obvious that everything had been very well planned. Each day's walking was not too strenous but long enough to give you a sense of achievement and the small flora and fauna were fascinating, from digging for spiders to making resurrection bush tea. We had bush showers with a view and excellent evening meals from the back-up staff at the campsites. And what 'rooms'! On the first night there was a full moon so we had a clear view of the desert landscape from our camp beds all night - absolutely stunning. A pity we had to have tents the second night because of a hyena alert. Highly recommended.

Good fun in the desert

This trail is not a stroll in the park and you need to be fairly fit as most of the walking is up and down sand dunes. Think carefully of the time of the year as it can be very hot. Having said that don't be concerned about sleeping outside under the stars. There is nothing to worry about other than in our case a sandstorm and rain and even in this the wonderful Anna and Frans were able to cook us a lovely meal and serve it to us in a tent.

We would advsie that you walk in long trousers and not shorts. Domingo was a wonderful guide and it was really enjoyable to be able to take the time to enjoy the desert scenery and and smaller creatures.

There were only four on our trip and maybe this was why we were woken up each morning with a hot drink in bed and fresh water to wash in. Showers and toilet facilities were excellent, numerous and private.

Fabulous trek through the desert

This was a highlight of our trip and definitely to be recommended. The Tok Tokkie Trail is very special.

There were four of us on our trip along with our guide Dijongo. It was lovely to be walking through all the scenery we'd driven through and we learned so much about 'life' in the desert. We were very well looked after - the food was great and our 'rooms' though simple were lovely.

There were so many thoughtful touches - we were given ponchos and hot water bottles to keep us warm at dinner and in our camp beds, we were brought cups of tea in bed in the morning before sunrise and at lunch there was even a tent with deckchairs for us to take shelter from the midday sun. The walking isn't difficult but you have to be reasonably fit.

Unmissable Tok Tokkie Trail

This was an amazing three days led by Domingo who was an excellent guide. The staff were all so helpful and fun to be with. We appreciated the hot water bottles, the morning tea served to us in our sand dune and the hot water for washing.

One of the highlights was when Domingo produced coffee and muffins out of his rucksack mid morning. We appreciated Domingo's knowledge of the area and also enjoyed discussing life in Namibia with him. There were seven of us on the trip but the other french family of four had their own french guide with them. This meant we were able to have Domingo to ourselves for much of the walking.

We also enjoyed our visit to the NADEET centre on the way back to the farmhouse. The food was very good considering that it was produced in the middle of nowhere.

Tok Tokkie Trails review

We loved our 2 days and nights in the dunes of the Namib Naukluft.

Alex made a good guide, pleasant, knowledgeable, and very keen to share his love of the country and show us fauna and flora.

Eating and Sleeping under the stars is magical - a never to be forgotten experience.

Tok Tokkie Trails review

A highly enjoyable 3 day walk through the NamibRand area with an experienced and knowledgeable guide. There were only 2 other guests on the walk which helped maintain the sense of wilderness and remoteness. You get plenty of time to study the less visible elements of the natural world on this walk, like insects, mammals, reptiles, birds and plant life. We learned a lot from this walk, much of which gave us a better appreciation of the rest of the areas of Namibia we visited.

The camps themselves are in surreally beautiful locations. Whilst this is outdoor wilderness camping, you are made very comfortable. Depending on what time of year you go, be prepared for very cold nights. We did this walk in early September, and although we had several layers of warm clothing, we were still cold and wishing we'd brought a woolly hat and gloves!

Tok Tokki Dreaming

This is a place to get off the beaten track, away from the crowds and get in touch with reality. The walking is simple and the beauty of the Namib is stunning. This is my second visit and would be quite happy to return in the future.

The amazing thing is the food is excellent, the beds under the stars the warmest and most comfortable in Nambia - a truely million star view.

If you do not like walking, bugs, conversation and good company - don't go
