Kunene

Kunene, in northwestern Namibia, is among the most remote areas of the country. The Kunene River flows south through undulating dunescapes and rocky ridges, creating an unbelievable landscape flanked by golden-green grasslands.

Why Kunene?
The semi-nomadic Himba tribe calls Kunene home, living harmoniously with nature including scattered populations of desert elephant, giraffe, zebra, gemsbok and black rhino. Conditions here are challenging – a lack of rainfall in Kunene makes life reliant on the river.

You’ll find peace among the dramatic landscapes in Kunene. Thanks to its position off the beaten track, you’ll have plenty of privacy and opportunities for nature-focused activities. Ride a quadbike over the dunes, boat along the river and enjoy scenic open-vehicle game drives. You can also meet members of the Himba community and learn more about the local way of life.
  • The Kunene River flows through a spectacular series of gorges.
  • Fantastical, ochre-coloured sandscapes.
  • See desert-adapted elephant, zebra and more.
  • Engage with members of the Himba tribe.
  • Enjoy the privacy of tranquil lodges.
