Okahirongo River Camp

The ultimate luxury safari at Okahirongo River Camp

Get away from it all in Namibia with a journey north to the awe-inspiring Kaokoland region for a much-needed holiday to the astounding Okahirongo River Camp in the Marienfluss area not far from the wild Skeleton Coast. Find this glorious eco-friendly camp sitting on a ridge with panoramic views of the Kunene River, perfectly placed above the rapids for best views and drama. 

Sit in the two elevated lounges and dining room and watch the river for hours, grab a book from the library or chill beside the dazzling swimming pool with a cold Namibian beer. The sun deck invites relaxation and landscape absorption while five-star service, mouth-watering African-Italian meals and top-of-the-range South African wines fine-tune your Kaokoland experience at Okahringo River Camp.

Your Namibian holiday in this wild windswept region is packed with drama and intrigue as you explore the beautiful Marienfluss Valley on the Kunene where crocs lurk and fly fishing is a great past time. Take a boat tour to find wildlife and see the birds, or enjoy early nature walks and game drives into this impressive northern Namibian region. 

This lavish tented camp is out in the scintillating Kaokoland landscape, a respite from the heat and soulful sights – settle into four poster beds and enjoy indoor and outdoor showers, spacious vista viewing decks, and a family suite is ideal for four people with two bedrooms and huge bathrooms. Enjoy the silence, the open spaces, and the desert hues, so restful for mind, body and soul. The only way to get here is by air, landing at the private airstrip about 20 minutes from camp.



Welcome to a beautiful, tented safari camp in the northern reaches of Namibia on a ridge above the vast Kunene River, a place called Okahirongo River Camp, made for visitors who love tranquillity in immense open spaces. Famous for its rugged purple mountain ranges and the Kunene River, Kaokoland is a harsh bit of Namibian desert with huge boulders dotted around and rare wildlife hiding. 

Enjoy amazing Wild figs, Baobabs, Makalani palms and other trees on safaris through the beautiful Kaokoland and find the best packages, lodges and campsites for your itinerary here. Best of all, choose Okahirongo River Eco-Camp for a luxurious and intimate stay in the desert, a place with an environmental conscience and where you can reconnect with self and family.

Natural tents blend into the environment with their eco facilities and materials from the earth – solar lights, lamps, canvas walls, wooden decks and stone accessories. All comforts have been remembered in the canopied king-size beds, the indoor and outdoor showers, the extensive viewing decks and the quality linens. Families can spread out in a larger suite with two bedrooms and two showers. 

Chat to other guests around the table when you tuck into fresh, wholesome foods, your personal tastes always coming first. Everything centres around the views, the space and the drama of the Kaokoland veld. 

Set off on drives to take photographs and see the red dunes and Moon Valley, explore the weird fairy circles in the desert sands and visit the traditional Himba people who still live according to age-old customs. 

A boat cruise along the magnificent Kunene River is a real eye-opener and you will see plenty of crocs and birds, right here on the border with Angola. Nature walks are best early in the morning and reveal stunning birds, wild animals and plants. Voyage2Africa loves the Kaokoveld and will ensure that your tour encompasses the many riches of this region.
