Kaokoland Adventure Tour (12 Days)


This is an adventure tour into the true wilderness.

A fabulous, lonely nature and few, still traditionally living Himba tribes await us. A mountainous area punctuated with wide valleys and dry riverbeds, but where wild game roams. The Epupa Waterfalls on the Kunene Border River are a little piece of paradise.

    Greeting at the airport. Transfer to Windhoek and opportunity for shopping. Relaxation from flight at the pool or visit downtown. Dinner at cost at well-known Joe's Beerhouse. Overnight at Hotel Palmquell.

  • Day 3

    Today is about to be exciting and challenging. Through a small dry river we reach the impressive Khowarib Gorge. It is important to keep your distance from each other here, because the fech-fech can get really dusty. But we can wash it off again in the water that suddenly springs from the dry river Accommodation: camping breakfast and dinner

  • Day 4

    Today we drive through some Himba and Herero settlements. You can also engage in a short chat. The city of Opuwo is our destination.

  • Day 7

    Through the plain of the dry Marienfluss we come again to the Kunene border river. The Marienfluss offers an impressive solid sandy stage in contrast to yesterday's rocky mountain stage.
