Full itinerary will be send with payment of deposit.
Due to the remoteness of this vast wonderland it is almost essential to travel in a group.
Kaokoland has a lot to offer in terms of natural beauty. The life-giving Kunene River has many waterfalls and rapids of which the most spectacular are the Ruacana Falls and Epupa Falls. The Marienfluss is a long, wide valley covered in soft wavering grass for most of the year, set between high, stark mountain ranges. It can be entered in the south via Van Zyl’s Pass or on the track passing Rooidrom. The area contains some beautiful fairy circles.
Come join us for an epic adventure into this wild frontier, the seclusion of the Kaokoland is the reason the semi-nomadic Himba Tribe can continue with their traditional way of life. The beautiful women and children of this tribe are unusual and striking with their red ochre coloured skin, intricate hairstyles and handmade jewellery. The Kaokoveld in Namibia is also home to amazing flora and fauna, including the desert dwellinge elephant, rhino, giraffe and lion.
In this region in northern Namibia, you can experience cultural interaction with the Himba and track African wildlife on 4×4 trails and witness fascinating Kaokoland sunsets.
