Brandberg Hiking Full Itinerary:

Day 01 - Arrive at Uis Elephant Guesthouse. In the evening, we will have a briefing in preparation for the big hike the next day. After the introduction, we pack our bags and allocate food and equipment.

Day 02 - After an early breakfast, we drive about 1 hour to the foot of the Brandberg on the western side. After a short briefing, we are off by 09h00 and enjoy a gentle introduction with ever-increasing slopes. Every half an hour or so we stop for a short breather. Depending on our group's fitness level we should reach our lunch spot by 13h00. Here we rest somewhat longer in the shade before we tackle the last 2 hours to camp. We should be at our overnight spot by about 16h00. We rest and explore the area. Dinner is prepared rather early, and we go to sleep as soon as it gets dark.

Day 03 - We wake up before sunrise to have some coffee and breakfast. As soon as it is light enough to walk, we depart. We should be on the edge of the mountain shortly before we start the
actual descend, just as the first light touches the horizon. We spend some time enjoying this
majestic spectacle. From here we continue downwards with regular stops. The entire journey today is about 4 hours. Once we are back at our vehicle the first drinks taste exceptionally good. We transfer back to Uis Elephant Guesthouse in time for lunch. The afternoon is at leisure. Overnight at Uis Elephant Guesthouse.
