Located in the north western part of Namibia, the Kaokoland constitutes the northen extremity of the Namib desert.
The Damaraland was once the homeland and territory of the Himba tribe. It is a wild area and some parts are quite difficult to access.
In the river bed we find an exceptionnal flora and fauna (desert elephants, oryx, springboks, giraffes et zebras). Kaokoland is isolated from the main tourist routes.
The Himbas are members of the Bantou and have a familial link with the Hereros tribe.
The culture of their ancestors has been preserved from western influences due to the isolation of the mountains.
Fauna and flora
Like Damaraland, the Kaokoland is a genuine natural reserve with giraffes, oryx, springboks, zebras. In some difficult to access areas we can see the last wild black rhinos of Africa and the famous desert elephants
