Against the backdrop of the vast Hartmann’s Valley and its spectacular geology, gaze upon lush Kunene riverine vegetation. Put your feet up and immerse yourself in the spectacular surrounds. Relax, the powerful silence of the desert restoring your soul. Travel the dunes on foot and by quad-bike, or lean back in a boat and look out for crocodiles and dazzling birds along the river. Don’t be surprised to see wildlife in the desert surroundings, from Hartmann’s mountain zebra and oryx, to tiny desert chameleons. This is also the home of the Himba, Namibia’s last semi-nomads. Respectful, authentic engagement with them in one of their temporary villages is wondrous, a true privilege.
