Adventurous guests always are thrilled about the Rock Arch (“Bogenfels”) Trail at BüllsPort in the Naukluft mountains in the southern centre of Namibia, returning with countless photos. In September, a guest even made the tour twice. He got shots that – like the trail – are not to be recommended for people with vertigo 😉
The way is already an adventure in itself: First a four wheel drive vehicle will take you up into the mountains on a steep, winding, two-lane road. Then you follow the guide on foot on a narrow path along steep slopes. Until you finally stand under the massive rock arch (“Bogenfels”), breathless and speechless. The tour of the Rock Arch (“Bogenfels”) Trail takes well about three hours, if you opt for the drive and guided hike. If you undertake it on your own, you should expect six hours.
Once was not enough
There was no stopping a guest from Vienna, who spent several days at BüllsPort in mid-September. He had to experience the Rock Arch (“Bogenfels”) Trail adventure twice – and this, after he had already undertaken the six-hour hike through the Quiver Tree Gorge on the first day.
In his backpack he took along his camera – and his drone. It goes without saying, that he had the necessary permission. Shortly after the guest returned to Vienna, he sent BüllsPort his greetings and his video clip, which we like to share. It invites to a very special experience: Circling around the Bogenfels of the Naukluft like a bird.
Note about drones
Drone flights in Namibia require a permit, which is available from the Namibia Civil Aviation Authority. On private land you also have to ask the owner for permission. In national parks, the use of drones is prohibited.
