The Kunene is situated in northern Namibia and runs along the border with Angola for some distance. This remote region is ruggedly beautiful with a large variety of scenery ranging from dry plains and mountains to the lush vegetation along the banks of the river. This landscape provides habitat for many wildlife species and is also home to the Himba people who still live in the relative isolation of their ancestors in traditional villages.

Guided river rafting trips run here offering participants the opportunity to enjoy this usually inaccessible area. Guests must be fit, although the trips do not require excessive exertion.
