Many parts of Namibia are blessed with spectacular scenery, none more so than the north-west regions of Damaraland and Kaokoland. This is a stark and remote land of rocky, rugged desert, flat-topped mountains and red-brown lava landscapes. Visit rock formations such as the Organ Pipes, Burnt Mountain and the Petrified Forest and the World Heritage Site at Twyfelfontein where numerous bushman rock engravings are found. Damaraland is famous for its desert-dwelling elephants and free roaming black rhinos and other game found here includes kudu, giraffe, mountain zebra, oryx and springbok and there is even a small population of lion.
North of Damaraland is Kaokoland which is even more remote. Independent travel here is only for the very experienced, well prepared and adventurous. The best way to experience this true wilderness area is to fly in with Skeleton Coast Safaris or stay at Serra Cafema or Okahirongo River Camp. The Kunene River, lined with palm forests, marks the border between Namibia and Angola and venturing to this remote region you will be rewarded with the opportunity to explore a truly wild part of Africa, wonderful mountain and river views, a great variety of birdlife by the river and in the forests and boat trips on the Kunene. Whilst in Kaokoland you may be able to visit a village of the Himba, a semi-nomadic, pastoral people who rub their skin and hair with butter and red ochre and wear elaborate jewellery.
