Tucked far into the north-western reaches of Namibia, the Marienfluss region is a remote wilderness area where the rough roads and lack of facilities keep travellers at bay. The Skeleton Coast Park borders the area in the west and the Kunene River, known to be rife with crocodiles, bisects the area in the north, creating a natural boundary with Angola. The Marienfluss valley extends between two sets of mountains.
Long grass blows in the wind, lone green trees adorn the vast landscape and springbok roam through the spectacular vistas. The landscape is dotted with the mysterious fairy circles, round patches in a sea of grass entirely devoid of vegetation. Until today research has reached no definite explanation as to their origin. This isolated area of the Kunene region is home to the Himba people, one of the last semi-nomadic desert-dwelling peoples to grace the continent.

Activities at Okahirongo River Camp
Explore the magical surroundings on an early morning walk or a scenic drive into the mountains or golden sand dunes complete with unforgettable sundowners. The wonders of the Kunene River will provide plenty of entertainment, be it fishing (conventionally and fly fishing), cruising along the river in awe of the rich birdlife or be on the lookout for some mighty crocodiles. Get some exercise by hiking along the river and marvel at the unspoilt flaura and fauna of the unique terrain.
Visit a traditional Himba village, which you will find an authentic experience,
as the semi-nomadic local tribe has not yet been spoilt by tourism, due
to the remoteness of the area.
