Horse Riding in Namibia with Equitrails
The Eros Mountains provide a spectacular insight into Namibia’s Khomas Hochland environment near the city of Windhoek. The area boasts a semi-arid climate with grassland vegetation that bursts into life after the summer rains.
It’s the perfect place for horse trails with winding routes traversing hills and dales, rivers to cross, and plenty of fresh air.
Enjoy this tranquil magnificence at Equitrails, located about 16kms north of Windhoek.
