North of Namibia excursion

Northern Namibia

The green color on the map lie in the north of Namibia, stretching from remote Kaokoveld (or "Kaokoland") in the far north-west to the Caprivi in the east. The Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Zambia as well as the Chobe National Park in Botswana and the Okavango Delta in the Maun area are also presented in this menu. Highlights in the north are the Caprivi, the impressive Victoria Falls and the harsh Kaokoveld with the semi-nomadic Himba people.

Damaraland

Striking rock engravings representing one of Africa’s largest rock art concentrations with diverse scenery.
Damaraland, being part of the Kunene Region, is one of the most scenic areas in Namibia, prehistoric water courses with open plains and grassland, massive granite hills and distant mountains create the landscape. The most famous area being Twyfelfontein (meaning doubtful fountain) which has 2 000 plus engravings estimated to be 6 000 years old and the newer paintings approximately 2 000 years old. This art, situated in its natural red rock gallery was awarded World Heritage status, the first in Namibia.

 

General information

  • A variety of lodges in the area who offer activities such as: nature walks, nature drives, rhino tracking, horse riding, night drives and visiting the community.

Kaokoland

This area which also falls within the Kunene region, is an area of desert, rugged mountain ranges, ephemeral rivers, the perennial Kunene River, Epupa Falls and home to the Himba people’.

It is a world of incredible mountain scenery, a refuge for the rare desert dwelling elephant, black rhino and giraffe and the home of the Himba people. The Himba are a slender and statuesque people. The women especially are noted for their unusual sculptural beauty, enhanced by intricate hairstyles and traditional adornments.

 

Although Namibia’s attractions are centered around the desert and its arid national parks, the country’s climate is certainly not uncomfortably harsh. In reality, this is a year-round destination and, while it’s definitely warm, it’s rarely suffocatingly hot.
The weather follows two distinct seasons, with crystal blue skies marking almost every day of the dry season from May to October. Maximum daily temperatures hover around 70 degrees between May and August, and warm clothing is essential at night. Wildlife viewing is at its best as animals congregate around the diminishing water and there is almost no vegetation to hide behind. While this is officially the high season, this is Namibia – so don’t expect to see too many other tourists
