Situated in the spectacular Marienfluss Valley in the heart of the Kaokoland Mountains, Okahirongo River Camp is an eco-friendly luxury camp and is the newest member to join the Classic Safari Africa family.
The Kaokoland in the Kunene Region is one of the most untouched and wild areas in Namibia. An incredible world of rugged mountains, hidden valleys, and rare, exotic culture; this remote, sparsely populated area is the size of Switzerland and lies between the Skeleton Coast Park and the Kunene River on the Angolan border.
Positioned deep within this remote region, Okahirongo River Camp is ideal for travelers seeking to immerse themselves in this natural splendor. Cleverly built into the rocky terrain, the camp can accommodate up to 14 people in just six tents. The tents are constructed with wood and canvas and each has a spacious private deck with magnificent views of the Kunene River. One of the best things about River Camp is that it’s actively committed to the conservation of this superb wilderness area and makes use of solar energy to power the lodge. This means that guests can rest assured that the breathtaking views of the wilderness are being preserved.
The main highlight at Okahirongo River Camp are visits to a Himba village. Kaokoland is one of the only places where you can see real semi-nomadic Himba people – a local tribal group, who have maintained their traditions and cultures, despite the increasingly surrounding influences of the modern world. Other activities at the lodge include tracking the rare desert-adapted elephants and black rhinos, as well as sunset boat cruises down the Kunene River.
Okahirongo River Camp is the ideal fly-in destination for travellers seeking the ultimate exclusive hideaway. Fly-in transfers from Okahirongo Elephant Lodge to the River Camp take around 40 minutes.
