The Midgard 4x4 experience currently consists of two trails whilst more are in the planning. 

One is a self-drive game and nature drive along the banks of the Swakop River lasting about 2 hours excluding view-stops for the numerous wildlife sightings or sundowners you will enjoy.  

The other 4x4 trail is about 30 km and would take you about 3-4 hours not calculating the time you spend at the picnic spots or enjoying the spectacular views. 

This challenging 4x4 route will take you through mountains, soft sandy riverbeds, and mud in the raining reason. The trails were laid out for all 4x4 enthusiasts whether experienced or not.

Midgard Country Estate is an easy 60-minute drive out of Windhoek and is located on 12,000 hectare of natural Namibian bush in the magnificent Otjihavero Mountains along the winding banks of the Swakop River. Watch our HD Video.
