Kunene River Camp

About Kunene River Camp

Accessible only via-fly in safari, this Kunene River Camp is located north of the Hartmann Valley on the banks of the bubbling Kunene River. Unlike the other fly-in safari camps, the airstrip is a little way from the actual camp, meaning you will approach via 4x4. But it’s a spectacular drive and the vehicle even has roof seats for those who can stand the sun and wind.

Beautifully located on a set of huge boulders, here you are in an area of stark contrast, with gravel plains (some etched with mysterious ‘fairy circles’), sand dunes and greenery all in close proximity. 

This is a very well run camp in a stunning location.
