Tok Tokkie Trails review

This was an amazing experience. So well organised and well thought out. Do be aware that the afternoon walking, particularly on the second day, is very hot even in May. Ideally would have left from the midday rest shade later.

Our guide Rodrigo . Roberto was excellent as were all the staff involved.

The visit to the Nadeet conservation project was much more interesting than anticipated

Sleeping under the stars

A highlight of our trip to Namibia, we loved every minute.

The walk wasn't too strenuous, the scenery was stunning, the guide was caring, funny and interesting, the organisation faultless and the food was amazing (from a tiny field kitchen!). And to top it all we spent 2 nights staring at and sleeping under the stars

We went in early September, and the weather was unseasonably cold, so the evenings were very chilly - need a jacket, hat and gloves.

An amazing experience

An amazing experience,! Fascinating walks, and information. Lots of wildlife!

Possibly tried to make meals too up-Market, simpler meals served more quickly would have been better as it was quite cold. ,Camp fire would have been welcome.. ,Hot water bottles in the beds was a wonderful surprise,

This is a once-in-lifetime experience

Tok Tokkie Trails is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, you will remember this trip for the rest of your life. Our guide, Sebastian, was great, he took care of everybody, making sure the speed of the walk was suitable for all the participants, showed us the fauna and flora of the desert.

We all loved sleeping under the stars on our stretcher bed, also loved the bucket shower, I one day had my shower in front of an oryx!

One suggestion would be to have some hot breakfast in the morning, we went there end of August, second night was chilly, hot breakfast could have helped to warm up.

Best glamping

We loved the walking, sleeping under the stars, the guiding, star gazing and the "suite".

Our group was excellent company (only 5 people).

Only minus was the food, it was fine, but we expected may be more.

Must do excursion

Tok Tokkie is a wonderful way to start one's Namibian experience. It is a quided walk, starting around 330 pm, after lunch on Day 1, walking a full day on Day 2, and arriving back in the Tok Tokkie HQ around 9 am on Day 3. The walking itself is very easy, with small distances and no particular elevation losses or gains. During our walk the maximum day time temperature was in the late 20s celsius so not troubling.

What makes the experience so enjoyable and special is the guide (Sebastian was our guide) and the wonderful camps, where one sleeps under a blaze of stars (following Sebastian's very informative star-gazing talk), the first time when the Milky Way really was milky, in very comfortable camp beds, complete with very welcome hot water bottles. Food is plentiful and excellent, served by very welcoming staff. The long drop loos (complete with signalling devices to indicate vacancy or otherwise) and hot bucket showers, both open to the African plains but secluded from one's fellow guests, were a tremendous "Out of Africa" experience.

It does get cold at night and there was one breakfast where there was a distinct run on the hot porridge, but one rapidly warms up and are relieved that the long lunch break on Day 2 is under canvas. We were woken one night by a nearby oryx grazing and everyone was very excited on the second night by the mournful call of a passing hyena. Tok Tokkie was a high point of a holiday complete with highpoints!

Amazing beyond words

We shared this amazing experience with a family who thought they were going to a luxury lodge!

We and they loved sleeping under the stars despite a few drops of rain in the desert. Guiding really good. Creatures of the desert fascinating.

Filo pastry at dinner in the desert. Bucket shower excellent. Sharing your "bedroom" with oryx and tok tokkie beetles.

We missed this experience 15 years ago and are so glad we went back to do it.
