Kunene

Namibia’s rugged river basin oasis

Kaokoland and the Kunene region are one of the Southern Africa’s remaining real wildernesses. The Kunene River swells after the rains, producing thunderous, turquoise spray against the strikingly rust-hued rock walls and plummeting over numerous waterfalls. The Ruacana Falls are as high as Victoria Falls and Epupa Falls cascades 60m in a series of dramatic steps.

Birds flock to these waters from more arid environs. Amongst the 240 recorded species you’ll see kingfisher, heron and fish eagle diving into the rivers for their dinner. The speed of the kingfisher is remarkable, their bejeweled plumage flashing in your peripheral.
 
Tribal people, too, rely on these waters, though their populations are sparse. The Himba are one of Namibia’s last semi-nomadic groups. They will share with you their daily way of life - the herding of goats, collecting of herbs and the cooking and serving of meals. It is a privilege to be amongst them, a guest of a civilisation fast fading in the modern world.

Accommodation:
Serra Cafema

Serra Cafema feels like the end of the world. If you love the peace and quiet solitude of the wilderness, then start dreaming about lying back, swinging in your hammock, on the veranda at idyllic Serra Cafema.
