North-west Namibia which includes Kunene (formerly Kaokoveld), the Skeleton Coast, and the Doro Nawas, Torra, Palmwag and Mareinfluss Conservancies, is situated in the far north-west of Namibia bordering the Atlantic Ocean and Angola. It is arguably one of the harshest environments on the planet, with endless vistas across stark plains, ancient valleys, rugged peaks and a desolate coastline, known as the Skeleton Coast for the number of rusting hulks of ships, and whalebones, stranded on the shore-line. One of the largest seal colonies in the world can be found here at Mowe Bay.

The regions’ ephemeral rivers that bisect the region form linear oases as they meander their way west towards the sea. For most of the region though the most reliable form of water is the fog created when the icy Atlantic waters meet the warm air of the coast. The lifeline that the rivers and sea fog gives supports the nomadic ochre painted Himba people with their intricate hair styles and traditional dress. Whilst the vegetation that fringes the river courses provides sustenance to a diverse array of superbly adapted desert wildlife like black rhino, elephant, springbok, gemsbok, giraffe, Hartmann’s mountain zebra. There is also a growing population of lion and the shy and odd-looking brown hyaena.
