Opened in June 2015, the new Khomas Hochland Hiking Trail covers a total distance of 91km over 6 days. It winds through the most alluring and rugged part of the Khomos Hochland crossing 5 farms - Duesternbrook, Otjiseva, Onduno, Godeis and Monte Christo. There is also an option to do a 4 day (53 km) hike.
We are certain it will attract hikers interested in geology, bird-watching, trees and other plants, wildlife especially reptiles, archaeology and those who just love a hike through mostly unspoiled nature, walking in dry river beds and over the rolling hills of the Khomas Hochland.
The route is well marked and should cause no problems to hiking groups. Fences are crossed with ingenious steps using old car tyres. The overnight places are well designed - catering for all hikers' needs. This includes hot showers (solar heated or using a 'donkey'), clean toilets, braai facilities and a covered sleeping area.
Lots of big trees provide ample resting spots along the route. The scenery is special. All kinds of game - Oryx, Kudu, Warthogs, Zebra, Waterbuck, Baboons, Klippspringer and more are plentiful. You might even see a Leopard or two. Birdlife along the Aretaragas and Otjiseva rivers and at the dams can be enjoyed in abundance. Eagles, Waterbirds, Lovebirds and lots of others will accompany you along your way.
However there are also shorter day hiking trails on the some of these farms. Duesternbrook, Godeis and Monte Cristo offer day hiking trails vaying from 5 - 18km. These can be combined with a weekend getaway of camping with family and friends. These Farms are all a stone throw away from Windhoek and also accessible with a sedan.

‘Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine
flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after
another is closed, but Nature's sources never fail. ~John Muir’
