The Zambezi Region, Namibia’s tropical, river-bound north-eastern extremity, is the glue that holds the five partner countries – Namibia, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana – of the world’s largest transfrontier conservation area together.

Journeys are about exploring and discovering. They are crammed with surprises: interesting people, fascinating stories and intriguing places. Instead of racing to your destination, consider slowing down and spicing up your trip with some colourful stops.

The seemingly inhospitable gravel plains of the Namib Desert extend over vast distances. Standing alone in the middle of this barren landscape can be a daunting experience. At a glance, there seems to be no sign of life in the hot, dusty, rocky and apparently endless plains that surround you.

If you ever thought endangered species have problems, you ain't seen nothing yet (if this sounds American, well it is as big as the U.S.A Trump card). We are indeed in the process of cutting off the wings of these birds, and no, we are not talking Penguins.

Plants. We tend to take them for granted – a part of the landscape. On safari, a good shade tree has its worth, especially in the hot and arid hinterlands… but how many travellers know of the floral diversity of Namibia’s northwest and look out for its many proponents as they navigate rugged tracks through spectacular landscapes searching for wilderness experiences?

Along the dirt roads that wind their way through the Namib Desert, there are subtle signs of change. These signs read “No Fences.” They indicate areas where fences have been taken down to allow for the free movement of wildlife and the integration of land back to its natural whole.

A little over a decade ago only a handful of conservationists and diamond prospectors were familiar with the unique beauty of the 26 000-square-kilometre Sperrgebiet. When the area was proclaimed a national park in 2008, it was a dream come true, giving conservationists the opportunity to showcase one of the last true wilderness areas in the world, while at the same time protecting it from a flood of tourists and their inevitable footprint.

Historically, Hartmann’s zebra had a continuous distribution range extending from Mossamedes in Angola to just south of the Orange River in South Africa. In Angola, Hartmann’s zebra occurred in the Iona National Park immediately to the north of the Kunene River. In earlier times this sub-species also occurred in the Cape Province of South Africa.

The people in the southern Kunene Region live in a starkly beautiful part of Namibia. To the visitor, it appears to be an undisturbed wilderness where rocky, red moonscapes meet endless blue skies. It is the home of famously desert-adapted plants and animals, where life continues despite the lack of rain and scorching sun. It is easy to forget that there are people here too. Like the wildlife with which they share the land, the people must be tough and resourceful to survive in this harsh environment.
