More active safaris are becoming increasingly popular as travelers become more health conscious and are attracted to safaris that offer more in the way of exercise. These safaris also offer a unique way of experiencing some of the more spectacular areas in Namibia with a very light footprint, getting close to the amazing geology, desert, and wildlife while on a mountain bike or on foot.

They are also ideal for the inclusion of other activities such as sea kayaking at the coast, where close encounters with various types of marine life are also common. Guides used for these safaris are experienced hikers, mountain bikers and kayakers, and most of them have impressive resumes which include having completed numerous challenging feats which are internationally recognized.
