Etosha National Park in Northern Namibia is a captivating place that provides a thrilling trip through its vast wildness and diversified environment. A NORTHERN NAMIBIA 4×4 TOUR excursion in this region offers visitors to explore gorgeous scenery, encounter a diverse range of wildlife, and watch some of Africa’s most beautiful sunsets.

Together we discover this sparsely populated part of Namibia that fascinates travellers because of the possibility of seeing some of the rare desert elephants or black rhinos

Formerly known as Kaokaland, the fabulous mountains and the traditional Himbas add to the adventure of discovering Kunene, as it is now known. Damaraland is picture-perfect with highlights such as Twyfelfontain, with rock art, the Petrified Forest, and the Brand Berg.
