KUNENE MOUTH

Enjoy another one of Namibia’s best off-grid 4×4 adventures.

9 days of glorious isolation and a well-deserved technological break. This unbelievable route stretches from Swakopmund all the way up to the Northernmost border of Namibia, the spectacular Kunene River Mouth.

The route passes through seasonal rivers and the famous Skeleton Coast National Park.
This wild coast is laden with mysterious histories, and passing through remains a privilege and an unbelievable experience.

KUNENE MOUTH ADVENTURE 2020

ITINERARY

The itinerary acts as a rough guide, but can be changed due to tide, time, and weather conditions.

DAY 0
Dinner (for own account) is planned as a meeting and briefing before the tour commences the next morning.

DAY 1
The group will meet up with their guide around 07h30, build in two-way radios and hit the road North. This day promises for a good amount of history that will be relayed by your guide. Before the digital detox commences, we fuel up and lunch in Terrace Bay. The first night’s wild camp will be set up between the dunes, the perfect way to disconnect.

DAY 2
An incredible change of scenery is on the cards for today. We meander through barren landscapes, mountains and riverbeds, meeting yet another few wrecks and a whole lot of history along the way. Day 2 offers a fantastic chance to spot the elusive desert elephant and lion. The day ends between sand dunes.

DAY 3
Another surprising change in scenery complete with lichen fields, seal colonies at Cape Fria and as you’ve guessed it, more shipwrecks. This night comprises of eerie stories and a camp set up at the famous Bosluisbaai.

DAY 4
After breakfast we will reach the beautiful mouth of the Kunene River. A stunning area with an array of fauna and flora including crocodiles, terrapins, and bird species in abundance. After an amazing dune driving experience we make our way back to camp.

DAY 5
Today we say goodbye to the Atlantic as we venture east across the Northern dune fields. An adrenaline-filled day coupled with stunning views of Angola. Wild camp is set up right next to the beautiful Kunene River.

DAY 6

We wake up to the trickle of the river as it bubbles over rocks and branches. After a calming breakfast, we travel back over the dunes and up to one of the most breathtaking sights one will ever see.

The Kunene below, an emerald oasis cutting through an angry landscape, with the towering sands of the South and the rugged Angolan cliffs to the North. Perhaps your next vacation will take you there with us.

DAY 7
Enjoy a walk to the rapids and boulders. We depart through the last bit of beautiful sand dunes before descending onto the grassy plains of the anticipated Hartman’s Valley. The wide-open spaces and occasional lonely trees allow us the chance to spot Springbok, Oryx, Zebra, Giraffe and possibly some Rhino. The route is slow, scenic and magical.

Marble Camp will be our host for the night. A chance to upgrade to a chalet is on the table for those interested.

DAY 8
We will spend the day driving down the Khumib and Hoanib river, testing drivers skills as we negotiate mud, rocks and sand. A full day in the river, playing through water streams between the stunning mountains on either side until we reach the famous Puros Poort with its permanent vegetation and lush springs. We will cross to the Hoanib river and enter the domain of the desert elephants once more. After a long, exciting day we spend our last evening together at Ongongo natural spring where we can swim and relax.

DAY 9
Sadly we say our goodbyes and make our way to the next destination
