Day 2: Naukluft Hiking Trail
The trail starts at the hut and except for two fairly steep ascents, the first days hike covers easy terrain. Much of the trail follows a zebra path with an easy gradient, and you are rewarded with spectacular views of the wide valley some 300m below. The overnight stop, 'Putte Shelter,' takes its name from the nearby 'working' well, which is equipped with a hand pump. Those with any energy left are welcome to take a short walk to watch the spectacular sunset.Hiking time: Around 6hrs.

Day 3:
The second day's hike mainly traverses the undulating plateau, and after about 3 hrs, 'Bergpos' is reached, from where there is a descent down the spectacular 'Ubusis Kloof.' This descent is very difficult and several chains have been anchored at critical points for ease and safety. 'Ubusis Hut' used to be a holiday cottage before the land was acquired for the park, and will be a pleasant surprise.
Hiking time: Around 7 - 9hrs.
Distance: 15km.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Camping: Ubusis Hut
Day 4:
The day starts back tracking all the way up to 'Bergpos.' This is followed by an easy route across the plateau to the 'Adlerhorst Shelter.' Hartmann's Mountain zebra and kudu are often spotted in the area. There is a possibility to watch the sunset over the desert, and it's approximately a 1hr walk from the shelter. The descent from here is easy, and return to the shelter can be made before darkness falls.
Hiking time: Between 6-7 hr
Distance: 12km
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Camping: Adlerhorst Shelter
Day 5:
The fourth day of the trail is to Tsams Ost, and initially traverses fairly level terrain, before branching off into a beautiful gorge carved by the Tsams River. After following the 'kloof' for some distance, the trail leaves the river and climbs steeply to bypass a waterfall, before winding down to the river again where we will see an enormous 'Moringa Tree.' A number of beautiful springs are passed shortly after the tree, before reaching the gravel road leading to 'Tsams Ost Shelter.' Transfer is by vehicle to one of the 'guest farms or lodges' in the area. A hot shower and comfortable bed awaits with time to relax and recall the pleasures of the last few days.
Hiking time: Between 7-8 hrs
Distance: 17km
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Guest Farms or Lodge
Day 6: Naukluft - Windhoek
After a hearty breakfast and a good night's sleep, there is a drive back to the capital city, where tired and weary hikers will be dropped off at their accommodation in Windhoek. The Naukluft Hike adventure has come to an end!
