Discover the traditions of the nomadic Himba people

There’s more to a safari than spotting big game, as you’ll find when you visit Kunene and Kaokoland. Here the unique wildlife experiences centre on the possibility of sighting the rare desert-adapted wildlife that roam these otherworldly landscapes, all dwelling side by side with the nomadic Himba people.

The desert region of Kunene is known for its towering mountains of distinctive metamorphic rock. Curiously, for a desert, the rushing Kunene River also cuts through the land, and acts as border between Namibia and Angola. Wildlife in Kunene isn’t just restricted to the desert terrain, however. The river contains a large population of Nile crocodile lying in wait on its banks.

As you marvel at stark rock mountains pinned against soft yellow sand dunes, your personal guide will help you find the best vantage point, so you have a chance to take a unique snap of this region’s outstanding natural beauty. You’ll also learn the fascinating history of the Himba. Their traditional way of life has existed in this region of Africa for centuries, and continues to this day. Learning about their traditions and life is just another way that Namibia offers a safari with a difference.
