Enjoy an interesting and informative night walk in the Swakop River Valley, which focuses on the nocturnal reptiles and insects of the Namib Desert. Late afternoon you will be picked up at your hotel to depart on a night walk to the Namib’s gravel plains where you will be shown the desert-adapted night life concentrating on species of Geckos, Spiders, Gerbils and Scorpions. During the day the desert looks inhospitable, unfriendly, devoid of life, but once the sun sets, the sand turns into a playground for all kinds of animals. After dark the seemingly barren Namib gravel plains come to life. The walks provide an amazing educational experience of the little seen nocturnal creatures.

Most of the creatures in the Namib are nocturnal and can be observed only after dark. The night walk offers a glimpse into the nocturnal theatre of this unique eco-system.
