Kunene Region

Forests · Geologic Formations · Waterfalls
One of the undeveloped regions of Namibia, Kunene lies in the northeastern reaches, cut off from the rest of the country by a mountainous landscape. The Himba ethnic group make their home here, renowned for their ability to survive and adapt in some of the severest conditions. If you make the trip to Kunene, try to bring sugar, coffee, or tobacco to trade with the locals, who are skilled artisans of pottery, jewelry, and leather. The harsh, dry climate renders agriculture nearly impossible, and a diverse wildlife thrives here, unthreatened by humans. As a result, game-viewing, bird-watching, and hiking top the list of things to do in Kunene. Use our world travel planner: Kunene Region and all its delights await.

Where to stay in Kunene Region

Luxurious hotels, guesthouses, and hostels remain scarce or nonexistent in the undeveloped region of Kunene. In spite of the lack of conventional accommodations, many safari camps and lodges offer guided tours and organized game views. Epupa Falls serves as a popular tent-camp area with electricity and mosquito netting, while Outjo Town provides several guest farm options with a tranquil atmosphere and homemade meals from local products. Hikers and climbers favor mountain camps in the northern mountain area. Needless to say, all of these accommodations are budget-friendly.
