Holidays to Kaokoland

Inland from the Skeleton Coast, lies the harsh mountainous area known as Kaokoland - one of the wildest and most untouched areas of Africa. This is the home of the semi-nomadic Himba, some of the last people in Africa to be affected by western ways. Kaokoland is also a refuge for the critically endangered black rhino, the giraffe and is famous for its desert elephants.

Highlights

  • Home to the semi-nomadic Himba people
  • Incredible wildlife, including desert-adapted elephant and black rhino
  • Dramatic mountain and valley scenery
  • Witness Namibia's only waterfalls, Epupa Falls
  • Remote, untouched and great for adventure
