Top 15 things to do in Kunene Region

1. Petrified Forest, Khorixas

An accumulation of tree trunks over 250 million years old, Petrified Forest stands as a national monument in the center of an arid desert. Discovered in the 1940s, the fossilized tree trunks were probably carried to this spot by an extensive flood. It's illegal to carry off even the smallest bit of petrified wood from here, and tour guides must accompany all visitors.

Witness a piece of tradition preserved through time in the tribal ways of the people at Otjikandero Himba Orphanage Village. Visitors have the chance to interact with the Himba people through a local English-speaking guide, but be mindful of your questions and the differences between the cultures. Observe the outfits of the women of the village, their daily routines, and shop for handicrafts they made to trade with tourists. The project serves to help the people continue their ways without succumbing to the modern lifestyle, as some of the profit goes to their protection.
