Get to Know Kunene Region
Home to ochre-coloured Himba people, this is one of Namibia’s most sparse and spectacular valleys stretching right down to the Skeleton Coast
The Kunene is probably the most remote region in the whole of Nambia. Considering how sparsely populated Namibia is in general, this is saying a lot. The famous Himba people call this place home, along with interesting desert-adapted wildlife such as elephant, black rhino and lion. The Kunene River marks the boundary between Namiba and Angola, a lifeline through the otherwise dry and unforgiving landscape.
