Full day Huarusib River excursion

Embark on a thrilling 4x4 adventure with our knowledgeable guides and explore the captivating Clay Castles, a remarkable natural geological formation nestled within the Hoarusib River. Witness the awe-inspiring beauty of these castle-like structures that have been shaped by the forces of nature over time.

As we traverse the rugged terrain in a 4x4 vehicle, you will witness the diverse layers of sedimentary deposits that have accumulated here. These deposits, consisting of fine powdery substances carried downstream by ancient floods, have sculpted the Clay Castles into their unique and enchanting formations. It's a sight that will leave you in awe of nature's artistic prowess.

Keep your camera within reach, as you might be lucky enough to encounter Danny the elephant during our exploration of the Clay Castles. Danny has become a beloved resident of this area and capturing a photograph of this majestic creature would undoubtedly be a cherished memento of your journey.
