Death Acre Dash; Angola

Imagine attempting to conquer the notorious Acre of Death in Angola on foot!
On the south-western part of Angola, there is a notoriously dangerous stretch of coastline referred to as the Acre of Death or “Doodsakker”. Many vehicles have been lost when over landers miscalculated the tides, the wind, and the swell on this section. Imagine attempting this on foot and becoming one of only a hand full of people who has ever done this! Silent Steps is offering a group of hikers and drivers this unique opportunity again in 2023.

Join us on the Death Acre Dash, a 100km, 5-day hike through the Namib Desert and challenge your physical and mental boundaries like never before! Come and explore with us the South Western part of Angola, its people and well-documented scenery including the Leba pass, the Cristo Rey (Christ the King) statue overlooking the southern city of Lubango, the markets and many other scenery with your own Portuguese speaking guide on the entire 9 day tour through this beautiful country.

Optimum planning is taken into consideration regarding the dates and strategic tidal planning to ensure the safety and enjoyment of our hikers and drivers. Two guides will be allocated to the Death Acre Dash, one guide to the drivers and Anette Grobler (the first person to conquer this section on foot in 2005), to the hikers, ensuring optimal safety of all involved. Hikers will be joining the drivers on 4/5 nights and drivers will be afforded the opportunity to test their 4×4 driving and fishing skills en route!
This will be a slackpacking experience you will remember for years to come
