Mountains, Deserts and Steppes

Golden dunes that stretch in sculpted waves as far as the eye can see, remote mountain passes far from trappings of the modern world.

The scale of the wilderness in deserts and mountains from Mongolia to Namibia takes the breath away. And makes them spellbinding places to explore.

In the deserts of Southern Morocco and the High Atlas Mountains we travel far from the beaten track using private camps carried on the backs of beasts - camels do the work in the desert, hardy mules in the mountains. These dramatic regions run in the very DNA of our Berber guides, while the crews who set up and transport the camps have been living and travelling these areas for generations.

At the other end of the continent we use expeditionary camps to explore the immense deserts of Namibia. From the dunefields of the Namib Desert, through the wild Skeleton Coast and north through Damaraland to the ethereal beauty of the Hartmann Valley.

To travel in these remote elemental places with an experienced guide is without doubt the trip of a lifetime.

WILDERNESS IS A WORD LIKE ‘SOUL’. SUCH A THING MAY NOT EXIST, BUT WE WANT IT, AND WE KNOW WHAT WE MEAN WHEN WE TALK ABOUT IT”

If you’re looking for an intense wilderness experience that blends seamlessly with the local Berber culture then consider spending a few days in the wilderness of the High Atlas or the Southern Deserts of Morocco. ”

THE PERFECT TREK!

"Vanessa from Natural High Safaris provided a very responsive,personal and bespoke service which in turn led to a perfect trip, that was without fault! From our pack mules all the way up to our guide, Oulaid, it was outstanding. We were guided through the most beautiful and remote countryside to camp sites with the most awesome views. Oulaid had really thought about our route and request to be off the beaten track. It was a delight that we did not see any tourist for the whole trek. Our team were professional,hospitable and friendly, delivery a very well prepared and comfortable camp each evening.The camp chef did an amazing job bearing in mind the remoteness of our location, conjuring up very tasty and varied meals each day. If I could book another trip tomorrow I would.Next year beckons!Well done all!!"

I will definitely plan an expedition with this company again.

"They promptly provided an itinerary in response to our desires. Feedback on the plan was well received. Closer to the time we were connected with our guides to further hone our trip. A group of 5 women, arriving from various destinations, camping and lodges in the desert with extraordinary guides. Yes, the cliche works here...a trip of a lifetime."
