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. ”

Fantastic Natural High

"Perfectly organised trip to two great Nomad camps in Tanzania!"

Natural High nailed it again

"Sledding in Sweden was our second wonderful holiday with Natural High. From the moment you speak to them to when you get home the service and attention to detail is wonderful.
Everything is so well planned and organised that you can just sit back and really enjoy your holiday. We couldn’t recommend husky sledding in the north of Sweden more. We all agreed it was one of the best family holidays ever."

Enjoyed EVERY second of an action- packed two weeks in Kenya. Asante Sana👏

"This was my fourth safari booked with Natural High and, as previously, it surpassed my expectations. Vanessa’s Itinerary was spot on - the three camps were very different but all were spectacular with food to die for, wonderful staff, friendly, knowledgeable and great driver/guides. I could go on and on - it was perfect, and the icing on the whole trip was tracking, and finding a pack of Wild Dogs - the reason for going😃
Already saving for a 5th trip and will DEFINITELY book with Natural High - they are the Best!"
