4. Kaokoland

Kaokoland is one of the wildest and least populated areas in Namibia, and this rugged landscape has some incredible mountain scenery. As one of the last remaining wilderness areas in Southern Africa, Kaokoland is the home of the Himba people, and is a refuge for the black rhino, the rare desert dwelling elephant, as well as giraffe.

This remote landscape is especially attractive during the early morning and late afternoon when it is transformed into softly glowing pastel shades, although the midday sun is harsh and offers little respite.
