This morning you will have an early departure from Doro Nawas as you make your way north deeper into the heart of Damaraland. En route you will visit an extremely remote Himba village, only known to a few people. Your guide’s presence and contacts with the local community will ensure you will be welcomed as a ‘friend of a friend’ and that you will be able to spend considerable time there learning about these fascinating nomadic pastoralists. There has been virtually no modern influence on these communities, which makes for a fascinating cultural exchange.
You will then continue on your journey, having a picnic lunch en route, and you will arrive at the Okaukuejo Resort, located inside the Etosha National Park, in the late afternoon. This rest camp’s focus is the popular floodlit waterhole, where guests can easily linger all day and watch the wildlife come and go. The accommodation, hosting and food is reasonably adequate for this rustic rest camp; the focus of this camp is its prime location being situation inside the park and thus you can dedicate as much time as possible on game drives within the Etosha National Park, subject to park regulations.
