Welcome to Namibia!

After your arrival at Windhoek International Airport – if possible in the morning – you will be met by your German-speaking Rafiki-X-Dream guide. Afterwards we will go to Omaruru.

We leave our camp in the morning for a full day game drive in Etosha National Park. The Etosha Pan is a salt pan of vast proportions in the 22,000 km² game-rich national park. During the game drive to the west, past countless water holes, you will have good opportunities to see zebras, wildebeests, giraffes, elephants, antelopes and with a little luck also lions and rhinos.

Tag 4: Etosha Nationalpark - Opuwo

After a morning game drive in Etosha National Park, we drive through untouched, lonely landscapes to Opuwo the capital of the Kaokoveld. Opuwo is the only major town located in the Kaokoveld – a largely untouched landscape where the traditional way of life of the Herero and Himba people has been preserved. Opuwo is characterized by the clash of tradition and modernity, which is evident in the city life. Many Himba people characterize the cityscape of Opuwo. Although they mostly do not live within the city, rather in their small settlements in the interior of the Kaokoveld, they often stay here to buy and sell.

Overnight: Campsite of Opuwo Country Lodge (B, M, A)


Tag 5: Opuwo - Epupa Wasserfall

Today we head high north to the Epupa Falls of the Kunene River, which forms the border river with Angola. With a loud roar, the floods plunge 50 meters into the depths. Our camp is picturesquely situated under palm trees, directly at the falls. For sundowner we enjoy the view of the waterfall.

Overnight: double room in chalet at Epupa Falls (F, M, A)


Tag 6: Epupa - Besuch eines traditionellen Himbadorfes

In the morning we will visit a Himba village. It is interesting to get an impression of the way of life of these people, who are still very attached to tradition. In the late afternoon, we climb a nearby hill from which there is an incredible view of the Epupa Falls.

Overnight: double room in chalet at Epupa Falls (F, M, A)


Tag 7: Epupa

We stay one more day in the green oasis at the Kunene. Early in the morning a local guide accompanies us on our hike along the Kunene River.
