~   Reviews on recent Elisenheim day hike   ~

Doufi Namalambo: ‘Stok-en-Hoed provides me with an opportunity to enjoy nature, to feed my eyes with beautiful scenery. This Saturday has been an amazing experience because when I am in nature I am myself. Thank you for this Marius, helping me to be healthy, my soul to be at rest.’

Ronja Lyhs: ‘What a lovely hike and so close to Windhoek. A bit challenging at times but well worth it. The scenery is beautiful and having breakfast overlooking the dam was such a pleasure. What a surprise indeed to have a fully laid table, coffee and even freshly made drop-scones!’

About

We love being on foot.

Countless hours of childhood wander on Namibian soil have over time been transformed into the conducting of organised day –  and overnight hikes. We are ‘out there’ since 2010.

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.

Stok-en-Hoed resonates with wide open spaces, sunny skies and a distant horizon.

 

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 eight up to thirty 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 second 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 offer a 3-day Canyon hike for the young at heart. Dates will be placed on our Calendar page in due course.
