Tailor-made Kunene Region Travel Experiences

Named after the Kunene River, the Kunene Region is situated in Namibia’s extreme northwest, one of the county’s remotest parts. Principally a desert region, the harsh landscape is interrupted by line of lush green along the banks of the Kunene River. Similar to the Nile, the Kunene is a vital artery infusing the harsh surroundings with vibrant life. The Kunene River is the rugged desert region’s only river which permanently carries water. It is a natural oasis for the wildlife, framed by a stunning background of mountain ranges and sand dunes. The lush river and the severe aridity of the desert form a striking contrast. Popular activities are game drives in all-terrain Land Rovers. Explore the breathtakingly beautiful landscape and track springboks, ostriches and elands. Another popular option are boat trips down the Kunene River which afford you the opportunity to spot the Kunene Crocodiles. The remote mountains and valleys lend themselves to anything ranging between a casual stroll and serious hiking. The most frequently spotted wildlife are the large herds of elands and springboks at Harman’s Valley. Crocodiles inhabit the Kunene River. Three bird species are endemic to the area: the Cinderella Waxbill, the Rufous Tailed Palm Thrush and the Grey Kestrel. Many other Namibian bird species can be observed, occasionally even the rare Palm-nut Vulture. Furthermore, countless reptile species inhabit the region. The Kunene Region is not only famous for its scenic landscape and exotic wildlife. The native Himba population, one of Africa’s last nomad people, is proud to share its cultural heritage with guests. The beautiful desert lodge, the Serra Cafema Camp, is frequently visited by Ovahimba families. Guests enjoy the great privilege of experiencing the age-old traditions and customs first-hand. A last highlight has to be mentioned: A fast-paced quad bike tour navigating the towering dunes west of the camp. It is both highly scenic and an adrenaline-pumping adventure!
