Kunene, Damaraland & The Skeleton Coast

NAMIBIA


LUXURY TRAVEL ADVENTURES TO WILD DAMARALAND

The Kunene region includes Damaraland, and the Skeleton Coast.

Damaraland is the name of the north-central region of what is now Namibia: lying inland, to the North of Windhoek and to the west of the Kalahari Desert. The adjacent coastal region, stretching from Walvis Bay to the northern Namibian border is the well-known Skeleton Coast.

A former homeland region for the Bantusan people of then South-West Africa, Damaraland is a region of rocky terrain, rugged mountains, and - as is so often true in Namibia - more space than you could ever need.

Toward the North of Damaraland one finds the greater concentrations of wild game. The terrain becomes one of rolling hills dotted with acacia and mopane trees as you move over the escarpment, and northward toward Etosha. Northern Damaraland's hilly savannah supports a large number of species, and birdlife is prolific with over 33 raptors recorded including cuckoo hawks, Egyptian vultures and peregrine falcons - which is also the world's fastest animal.

The area toward the South of this region is known for interesting geological features, fascinating archeological sites, and San rock art. Volcano induced peaks break up the landscape as the land rises gradually toward the great escarpment. Two very large volcanic craters, millions of years old, hold evidence of Namibia's earliest inhabitants. At 22km across, the Messum Crater is an astonishing sight.

Further out afield to the West, the Skelton Coast conjures up mysterious visions of mist-enshrouded beaches strewn with bleached whalebones, rusted shipwrecks and endless desert dunes meeting with the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
