We had limited time so arranged for the horses to be brought to the beach between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund, where we rode for 2 hours with our guide Eddie. Tanya collected us and brought us back to our hotel which was great. We loved the ride on the beach - the horses were all good and not boring plods... More

Kathrin is a true gem, implementing hot-off-the-press European strategies that we in the USA have no knowledge of yet. We visited Swakop for a month; my daughter (a Novice/Training-level eventer) was fortunate enough to have dressage lessons with Kathrin. Kathrin (who is keenly perceptive) was able to change Grace's overall position *remarkably* in just her initial lesson. I have never... More

Thanks to Kathrin and her staff for making horse riding available during a short stay in Swakopmund. Booked a 3-hour horse ride over e-mail with Kathrin whose responses were sometimes slightly delayed, but she is very busy it seems. Was very pleased that pickup from in-town was included as I would not have had transportation otherwise. Tanya arrived right on... More

Excellent from start to finish. Booked a 3-hour trail ride (or 'outride' as they called it). Owner Kathrin was helpful and responsive to all my emails when I was organising the ride from abroad. As I had no car, Tanya drove into Swakopmund to bring me out to the stables, about 15km out of town. Stable complex is obviously well-run,... More

For my parents (absolute beginners) just as nice as for me (I'm experienced)! Healthy, friendly horses and nice guides! Perfect that we could split up in the middle of the ride (we had two guides) so that my parents could stay in walk while I had a little desert adventure how every experienced rider imagines it 😊 I've been on...

I am a passionate horse rider and owner for more than 20 years and normally I am very critical with everything that has to do with horses and tourism. However, due to good reviews on Trip Advisor I took a look at the Okakambe Trails stables and did a 2hours riding tour to the "moon landscape". And: I can confirm... More

Amazing stables with a Great possibility to explore a very special landscape. The horses made a fabolous impression. They were in a very good condition and didn't even breath hard after a long ride in sometimes deep sand. Our guide was very competent (as a rider and as a guide) and had a good feeling for our riding abilities. We... More

I definetely liked that the staff cared so much about fitting tack. Wearing a helmet is a duty which i find very responsible. You can even borrow chaps if... More

Nice horses that are well taken care of. Great area to take a ride in, beautiful landscape, you can go almost everywhere and for hours. Really good that they have a pick up service within swakopmund, you need it if you don't have a car. I would want to have a little more contact with the horses. When a came... More

The ride was perfect all around! When I came there a very nice member of staff greeted me and asked me about my abilities as a rider and found the perfect match for me! The guide was very nice and attentative to meet my expectations! We rode alongside Swako-River, through the moon-landscape around the black mountain and back. The horses... More
