Namibian Tours & Safaris: North West Adventurer - 6 Nights

North West Adventurer - 6 Nights

Day 1

Arrive at Khowarib Lodge for luxury and comfort on your first evening.

Day 2

We leave Khowarib Lodge for the town of Opuwo where you can happily expect to be standing in a supermarket queue with Herero and Himba women. From Opuwo we drive north to Okonguati and cut west on basic tracks into the wilderness and strike off to the tiny settlement of Otjitanda and then on towards the Van Zyls Pass where one of our crews will pitch camp and our guide will start cooking dinner for us.

Day 3

We take on the last part to reach the top of Van Zyls Pass. On a ridge overlooking the Marienfluss, we will enjoy what is possibly the finest view in Africa. We complete our descent of the pass in extreme driving conditions and have a traditional celebration at the foot of the pass. We will then explore the magnificent Marienfluss and camp on the banks of the Kunene River.

Day 4

Travel down the beautiful Hartmann valley and pass the famous “Red Drum” into the Khumib River, where we camp for the night. (This night can also be supplemented with lodging at Etambura Camp instead of camping, with an additional cost of N$800 per person.)

Day 5

Driving further south we enter the Hoarasib River and camp at the interesting traditional township of Purros. Depending on time we will visit a Himba village and experience their rich culture in the afternoon or early the next morning.

Day 6

The final day we will drive south through tributaries to the Hoanib River in search of desert adapted elephants and other wildlife before returning to Khowarib Lodge via Sesfontein.
