Our curated accommodation in Kaokoland sorted by popularity ranking
Opuwo Country Hotel
The Masai-like Himba people of Kaokoland have retained their traditional semi-nomadic lifestyle. Their land is harsh, inhospitable and fascinating, creating a delicate balance between survival and obliteration.
Hoanib Valley Camp
Remote. Totally remote. This intimate camp in the heart of Kaokoland offers an incredible experience of the wide open spaces, local Himba tribes and desert adapted wildlife.
Omarunga Lodge & Campsite
Shaded by the Makalani Palm Tree forest, fourteen thatched chalets look out on the river with a small veranda – the perfect place for you, a cooling drink and the setting sun to complete the day. If you would prefer to self-cater then there is also a small campsite with nine stands, an ablution with hot water and cooking facilities.
Serra Cafema Camp
Serra Cafema is a luxury camp with an idyllic setting in the riverine forest of the Kunene River far away from any hint of civilisation. With the exception of your luxurious accommodation.
Khowarib Lodge is a comfortable safari lodge in Kaokoland, Namibia: a vast, wild and beautiful wilderness area inhabited by Himba pastoralists and desert-adapted wildlife.
Okahirongo Elephant Lodge
Way up in the north-western reaches of Kaokoland is a land so wild that coloured drums mark intersections and place names have no written equivalent. Put a comfortable and stylish lodge in the middle of this and the result is a bizarre mix of avant garde eco-tourism.
Khowarib Lodge Campsite
This is the place to channel your inner Matisse. Lie back and look. See how the lapis sky cuts into those ochre mountains? Touch of cadmium yellow here, maybe some orange there. This scenery makes a striking composition. Get yourself a crazy coloured tent and you’ll feel quite the artist.
Epupa Falls Lodge & Campsite
Epupa Falls Lodge is shaded by native makalani palms and the snaking swathe of riverine forest, a welcome sight after the dusty desolation of Namibia's most wild realm: Kaokoland.
Epupa Camp & Campsite
On the edge of the southern bank of the Kunene River, the lodge and campsites are nestled as an oasis under the wild figs, makalani palms and baobabs. A retreat in an otherwise harsh and remote area of pure beauty and although it’s not luxury, it’s a notable step up from other more basic tented camps you might come across.
Oppi-koppi Restcamp is a laid-back and convenient stopover in Kamanjab en route to Etosha via the western gate at Galton or further north into Kaokoland.
Ongongo Waterfall Campsite
This is a campsite in the middle of no-where. A warm fountain, a natural swimming pool. Ongongo Waterfall Campsite has 10 sites and ablutions. The scenery is mind blowing and all otherworldly. And giraffe, rhino, elephant live here. In this desolate land, this desolate desert. Namibia really is like nowhere else on Earth.
Kunene River Lodge
The deck, extending out over the water and shaded by a dense canopy of riverine trees, is the focal point of this remote lodge in northern Namibia.
Opuwo is the largest centre in the sparsely populated northern reaches of Namibia and the only stretch of paved road for miles around. The fascinating semi-nomadic Himba people live here and the region is a hotspot for many rare and endemic birds.
Fort Sesfontein Lodge
Fancy a fort as a base camp? The one at Sesfontein was built in 1896 by Imperial Germany and abandoned in 1914. The restored fort is now a charming and rather eclectic hotel, turrets and all.
