Next Windhoek day hike – Saturday 8 & 15 August – Exploring Krumhuk 

We are excited to set out during the coming weeks looking to add a new trail to Stok-en-Hoed’s growing itinerary.

About

We love being on foot.

Countless hours of childhood wander on Namibian soil have over time been transformed into the conducting of various day hikes in the Windhoek area as well as a few select overnight options for those who would rather have a somewhat meatier bone.

We care about where we go.

Smaller groups are the norm; we prefer hiking with 3-8 people in environments not suited for larger numbers.

In a day and age known for technology rapidly advancing across the globe with tremendous impact on the way we live, Stok-en-Hoed continues to value frequent exposure to wide open spaces, sunny skies and distant horizons.

 

Day hikes

Stok-en-Hoed undertakes day hikes close to Windhoek when not out on overnight hikes elsewhere (relevant dates on our Calendar page).

All our day trails are within an hours’ drive of town and cover distances from 8 up to 30 kilometres on the central plateau where the terrain varies from sandy plains to dry riverbeds and rugged hills. Moltkeblick in the Auas mountains to the south is the 2nd highest peak in the country. As enthusiastic birders we also keep an eye out for our feathered friends in the area.

For enquiries and bookings, please find our details on the Contact page. We look forward hearing from you!

 

 

Overnight hikes

In addition to shorter day trails around Windhoek, Stok-en-Hoed also conducts overnight hikes further away. Our current focus is mainly the south of Namibia but there remain opportunities elsewhere. Please continue to visit for updates as we keep up our quest in searching out areas with potential for multi-day trails.

Take note that as from 2020 we will also start offering 3-day and 4-day Canyon hikes for the young at heart.
