Outdoor Activities @ Harmonie
- Bring your own mountain bike and enjoy more than 40km of roads on the farm. Routs differ from high intense experienced road, long distance gravel and beginner routs. The longer distance riders can also utilize the scenic C28 road which has minimal traffic. Harmonie C28 offers an excellent training opportunity for the Desert Dash, Namib Quest and other events. All of this can be done, while the rest of the family or friends enjoy the rest of the facilities.
- The hiking trail offers good sighting of some of the special birds. The best hiking time would be early morning, as it will get very hot over the midday and birds will be most active, especially the Hartlaubs Francolin (just after sunrise). While on the trail, be on the lookout for the Rockrunner on the sharp rocky edges of the dry river along the route. With almost guaranteed sightings of the short tailed shrike. Ruppell’s parrot and the Rosy faced lovebirds are quite active in Acacia trees along the riverbed, be attend to their calls when flying between trees. The white capped morph of the Mountain wheatear and different forms of the Sabota Lark (thicker bill) and Short-toed Rock Thrush (White cap) can also be seen. Other birds seen quite regularly along the route are Carp’s Tit, Pirit Batis, Red-billed Spurfowl, White-throated Canary, Crimson-breasted Shrike and Barred Wren-Warbler are worth a mention. Monteiro’s Hornbill are frequently seen while hiking, with the Damara Hornbill being scarcer.
- The clear and cloudless skies in Khomas Hochland attract amateur astronomers and professional alike. The night sky is an unforgettable experience for someone living in the city.
