The Klipspringer Canyon Tour takes us through the ‘natural highlights” :
On this drive of about 5 hours we venture into the alluring, archaic landscapes around the Khan and Swakop River Canyons, an area of relatively inaccessible and uncharted terrain, conveying a feeling of overwhelming remoteness and blissful solitude.
We follow faint paths across time-worn plains, through avalanched rock in rugged gorges and into the craggy, well-vegetated wild canyons.
En route we stop often and do short walks to look at, to look into – and interpret the many miracles, small or large, that Nature presents to us.
Preferably the tour is done in the afternoons; then the desert landscape is glowing in a subtle bronze light, the sea breezes provide for pleasant temperatures.
We usually have a tea & coffee break in a tributary ravine of the Khan River valley. Stories, histories and anecdotes.
We return to town around sunset, in time to experience the twilight mood of the moon landscape.
