Activities at Kunene River Camp
Kunene River Lodge is a Birder’s dream! With the discovery of the first two Cinderella Waxbill nests in the wild, we usually achieve high success rates with sighting this elusive species . There are many other species of great interest to be found in the area including the rare Grey Kestrel which is resident nearby. Or what better way to start the day than to steer silently along the river at dawn with a knowledgeable guide pointing out - who knows what? Includes welcome refreshment.

During the day, you can take the opportunity to experience first-hand a way of life which dates back centuries. Visit a traditional Himba family living as they always have - and as they wish to continue.
