Day 6&7: Ongula

About 60% of the country’s population live within this small section of Namibia, so you can expect to see lots of people, markets, cows, goats and lots of cuca shops (bars). The predominant cultural group in this area are the Owambo people which you can get into contact with.
Day 8&9: Kunene River Lodge
From Ongula, you will be heading to Ruacana. It is a busy border crossing between Angola and Namibia and here you will meet your first Himba people. They make beautiful jewellery and you can often purchase pieces from them. Kunene River Lodge is a simple camp on the banks of the Kunene River. It offers spectacular views and some exciting day trips, if you want a very special day you should consider joining the river rafting tour they offer- this includes some ‘not so serious’ white river rafting between amazing red rocks. An experience not to be missed!

Day 18: Fish River Canyon


Your accommodation will be at the Canyon Lodge which offers guided hikes, horse riding and scenic drives around the area.
Day 19 & 20: Bagatelle


The Kalahari Desert is very different to the Namib, primarily because it receives more rainfall. You can expect to see fairly large herds of buck species browsing between the dunes. From here it is a fairly quick drive back to Windhoek, the capital of Namibia.
