Kunene

Call 01242 547 702 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Kunene is an area where the mountains of metamorphic rock are cut through by rivers. The Kunene River is the border between Namibia and Angola. In this isolated region, the Himba people continue their nomadic, traditional way of life. Game viewing in this area is limited to herds of gemsbok, springbok and Hartmann's mountain zebra. The Kunene River has a large population of Nile crocodiles, an anomaly in a desert. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty with the contrast of the stark rock mountains against the soft yellow sand dunes.

A stay at Serra Cafema is the ultimate place to appreciate the vastness of this remote area only inhabited by the nomadic Himba people.

Guest Testimonial

Just a short note to thank you for all your efforts in putting together our itinerary for our honeymoon. We had the most utterly fantastic time and we were impressed time and again by the A&K service; all of the transfers happened perfectly and we were looked after from the minute our journey began. We also got a sense that we were staying in places that we would not have found had it not been booked through you. In particular The Elephant Camp, The Hide and Ongava Lodge stand out as the most wonderful places to stay, with exceptional guides and hosts, and where we had the best experiences. It was just wonderful- better than we could have imagined. Thank you again and we will book with A&K in the future (just maybe not again this year!) Best wishes Tom
