This 13-day safari allows us to explore one of the last remaining true wilderness areas in Africa, northwestern Namibia. Because of its rugged terrain, it receives less tourists and local inhabitants are mainly the OvaHimba tribe with a population density of only 1 person per 2 km2. The whole Kunene region covers approximately 115,000 km2 and it has an open ecosystem where desert adapted wildlife migrate over large distances in search of food and water which is scarce in this rather arid area.
We will be exploring the main river beds which are usually dry with a few water sources. These include the Ugab, Huab, Uniab, Hoanib and Hoarusib ephemeral rivers. We will visit the Damara and OvaHimba tribes, to learn more about their culture and everyday way of life.
Bordering Namibia and Angola is a perennial river, the Kunene. We will explore it after our stay at the Epupa Falls. Our last stay will be the western side of the famous Etosha National Park from the Galton gate side. Our accommodation will range from remote camping to luxury lodges. This safari can start in either Windhoek or Swakopmund and ends in Windhoek.
