Namibia :: Namib-Naukluft
Category: Attraction :: Animal
Near Aus, these are probably one of the last herd of feral horses in Africa. Generally, these horses are in very good condition. It is speculated that these horses originate from being released from various farms and camps in the early 20th century, especially during World War I.
The horses have congregated at the Garub Pan, possibly due to the water source.
Since the 1990's close studies on the horses have been kept. The horses grazing land has been incorporated into the Namib-Naukluft national park.
Since October 2015 the horses are being fed by the Namibia Wild Horses Foundation. Most horses have improved in condition with regular feeding.
You can contribute to the feeding program by contacting the Namibia Wild Horses Foundation.
The best time to view the horses at the viewpoint, which has a viewing hide, is sunrise or sunset. In winter it is around 08:00am.

Do not feed these horses - otherwise it keeps them away from grass bales which are fed to them on a regular basis!
