NAMIBIA 2016 - Crossing the Namib Desert by horse
An amazing horse safari in Namibia SW Africa on
horseback travelling 350km from the Soussusveli area through the
Namib desert all the way to the Atlantic coast at Swakamund.
Camping out each night in the open the sounds and smells of the desert were always present. An adventure crossing huge African plains at times galloping with zebras or oryx and at other times crossing hard stony plateaus. At times following the places which Henno Martin has written of in his book ‘The Sheltering Desert’. Wikipedia link: The Sheltering Desert
When we thought we had seen it all, seeing the horses jump surefooted to get out of the steep sided Kuiseb canyon we were left us in awe.
At the heart of the adventure were the horses who were selected from an 80 strong herd… sometimes ridden sometimes free. The film seeks to capture not only the majesty of the horses but their bravery and modesty at work and play. Enjoy!
