We drive from Twelfoitein via Himba village at Kamajap where we experience the Himba culture and learn how live in their habitat.
At the end of the 19th century, Namibia was plagued by a relentless bovine epidemic. Most of the cattle that the Herero depended on perished, and the tribe faced a great crisis. Subsequently, the tribe moved south and started to explore different regions to enhance their chances of survival. Still, some members decided to stay and rather struggle for survival in familiar territories. All meals will be served at the lodge.
It will be a stopover for 1 hour then our trip will continue till we arrive at Etosha National park. The activities which awaits guests at Okaukuejo are game drives and game walks or just to seat by the waterhole and watch wildlife coming to drink water. This water is very active during day as many animals frequent it very much. On a good day there are chances of witnessing a kill at the waterhole. A great opportunity for photos.
