Why Kunene?

The Kunene region is located within northern Namibia & shares a border with Angola. This vastly undeveloped region is almost inaccessible due to its mountainous geography, making it one of Africa’s most remote & unspoilt safari regions.

Experience Only accessibly by small aircraft, the Kunene will appeal to discerning guests who are looking for an utter remote & uncrowded safari experience.

The Kunene River cuts across the sparse dry environment creating an oasis-like environment that juxtaposes with an otherwise hauntingly harsh sparseness.

This strip of lush vegetation attracts nomadic wildlife from afar & at the river, you will find 2 waterfalls – Epupa, a series of waterfalls framed by unique coloured rock walls as well as Ruacana, one of the largest waterfalls in Africa, both by width & by volume.

The area is home to the unique Himba tribe who are the only inhabitants & are one of the few groups of people who continue to lead a nomadic lifestyle. The Himba strike a unique appearance as a result of their traditional full-body skin treatment which protects them from the harsh African sun & embellishes them with a rich red hue.

Activities The Kunene region offers a wide range of land & water-based activities.

Activities include dune excursions & responsible cultural encounters with the Himba people who are adept at tracking scattered populations of desert elephants, rhinos & other scattered groups of wildlife. Here guests can gain some insight into their otherworldly desert existence & learn about how they cope with life in the desert.

Other exciting activities include nature drives, hiking, quad biking, boating safaris on the Kunene River & scenic desert picnics. Guests can also enjoy rafting, canoeing, fishing, swimming in rock pools & bird watching.

When To Travel Kunene can be visited throughout the year, but the climate is most pleasant during the winter months, from May to September. Both falls are best viewed in March, April & May when the thundering volume of water rushes through & spills over into the gorges of Epupa & Ruacana, creating clouds of mist near its base.
