Kaokoland lures lovers of remote and wild places.


Extending south from the Kunene River across a sparsely populated and harsh environment down to the Hoanib River, the area is home to the semi-nomadic Himba people. The rugged terrain tempts drivers who come to put their four-wheel-drive vehicles to the test as they negotiate challenging routes such as Van Zyl’s pass. Other travellers hope to see the desert-adapted elephants, visit the impressive Epupa Falls, go to off-the-beaten-track destinations such as the expansive Marienfluss and Hartmann valleys, experience the wild and beautiful Khowarib Schlucht, and visit historic Witbooisdrift, site of a Dorslandtrekker monument.



  • The region hosts one of the largest waterfalls in Africa
  • It is the stamping ground of the world-famous desert-adapted elephant
  • The semi-nomadic Himba call this arid land home
  • The area is a geological wonderland
  • It has off-the-beaten-track destinations aplenty



  • Track desert-adapted elephant and rhino with a qualified guide
  • Visit a Himba settlement
  • Take a dramatic sunset photo at Epupa Falls
  • Camp on the banks of the Kunene River
  • Take your 4×4 and tackle a proper off-road challenge
  • Enjoy the abundance of bird-watching opportunities
