Overview

The luxurious Okahirongo River Camp is where you can escape it all, high on a ridge above the Kunene River in northwest Namibia. The desert landscape stretches out in front of the camp to meet mystical peaks along the horizon and overlooks the Kunene River. Kaokoland in the Kunene region is one of the most untouched, wild areas in the country and is home to the famed Himba tribe. You can revel in one of the best cultural, eco-conscious and wildlife journeys in Africa.

This region is home to desert-adapted elephant and the endangered black rhino. You will spend time traversing the landscape in search of these species on scenic drives, walking safaris and even river cruises on a small pontoon boat. You will also visit the Himba village and be introduced to their fascinating culture and lives - they use ochre pigment for protection from the desert climate, giving their skin and hair a distinctive reddish hue.

When you reach this ultra-remote location, you will be serenaded by the desert stillness and the soothing ripple of rapids below you. Whatever you decide to do at the camp, you will feel a deep sense of connection to Mother Nature and the freedom of this vast landscape.
