Damaraland and Kaokoland | Namibia

Damaraland is one of the most scenic regions in Namibia, with stunning landscapes ranging from expansive sand dunes to soaring mountain peeks, ancient valleys, boulder strewn floodplains and curious rock formations. This is a varied, vast and incredibly silent landshape, home of the Ovahimba people and an array of wildlife.

Namibia Safari with Self Drive

We do not have enough superlatives that we can use to express how wonderful the last three weeks have been.
