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. ”

Another Perfect Trip

"Morocco was our fourth trip with Natural High and true to past trips, the itinerary was right on point for our interest and goals, all logistics went off without a hitch and the service throughout the trip was high end. Everyone we worked with were friendly and professional. We had a fantastic time...Thank you!"

Perfect holiday from start to finish.

"Absolutely excellent service. The itinerary was spot on and the whole holiday worked like clockwork. The pre holiday notes and briefing were most useful too. I would have no hesitation in recommending Natural High Safaris to others."

Fabulous trip to Tanzania

"This is the second time we have used Natural High Safaris, and again they organised an outstanding holiday for us, this time in Tanzania, combining a safari and beach holiday that was top-notch. Highly recommend them, with huge range of experience and desire to really understand what it is their clients want - and then delivering! Thanks to Catherine Ronan."

An outstanding trip to the Himalayas superbly designed by Natural High.

"Natural High organised a 2 week family trip to Ladakh in August 2018. Andrea Hulme used her local knowledge to design an exciting trip that included a 5 day trek, white water rafting and numerous cultural visits and experiences. Their local partners Shakti were absolutely outstanding and we loved staying in the village houses as opposed to hotels. Their female Ladakhi guide Sonam was really one of the best we have every had on our travels."

"Yet again another great holiday arranged by Natural High - Air France tried to ruin it but Natural High and their local agent were very helpful in resolving the problems caused. ."
