We are sorry, there are no reviews yet for this accommodation.
Northwestern Namibia, Damaraland and Kaokoveld demand a certain level of respect. Beautiful, but arid and unforgiving, attractions near this area have names like Burnt Mountain, the Petrified Forest, the Skeleton Coast â€“ all aptly named and an indication of the drama found here. Occupying a huge, harsh stretch of landscape to the northwest of the country, even the people and wildlife have adapted accordingly.
The Himba, a tall, slender and statuesque people, rub their bodies with red ochre and fat to protect their skins against the climate. Desert adapted elephants have special behavioral characteristics, large annual and seasonal ranges and a social structure and daily activities to cope with the environment.
Thankfully for visitors, there are many great desert accommodation options, which means you don’t have to rough it in Damaraland and Kaokoveld in the slightest.
Culture and history infoNamibia northwestern region extends from the Kunene River on the Angola border down to the Ugab River, the southern border of the Skeleton Coast Park. The park is a massive wilderness reserve known for its untouched and diverse landscape, much of which is inaccessible, saved for fly-in safaris. Other attractions in this region include the desert-adapted elephants of Kaokoland, quaint Himba settlements, Epupa Falls, the rock engravings of Twyfelfontein, the Petrified Forest and much more. The entire region is vastly scenic, a huge, untamed, ruggedly beautiful country that offers a more adventurous challenge.
