The Kunene River

Namibia

Found in the far north of the country and marking the border between Namibia and Angola to the north, the Kunene is one of Namibia’s few perennial rivers and as such is a magnet for both people and wildlife. The river feeds in to the Okavango and Kwando Rivers which eventually form the mighty Zambezi, meaning the system spans the continent from west to east.Being such a remote region means that there is very limited accommodation in the region, with one incredibly luxurious lodge where we focus our attention.Visitors here are able to enjoy a broad range of activities including boat trips on the river, quad biking through the sand dunes, picnic overlooking a sparkling oasis and, perhaps most notably, interactions with the local Himba people. The tribes found here are truly nomadic so there is nothing contrived about the experience – a far cry from many other visits to the Himba offered in other parts of Namibia.
