Kunene River Cruise

Kunene, Namibia

The Kunene River, one of only three fresh water sources in all of Namibia, runs along the Namibia/Angola border in the north of the country. Because of the water it provides, the narrow river is flanked on both sides by lush vegetation for about 100 feet, before the desert takes over again and everything is dry and sandy. Flat-bottomed boats are the best way to see the river and surrounding banks, which are home to crocodiles (some of whom can grow to up to 11 feet long), a large number of interesting birds and stunning views of river and orange-red sand dunes. The morning, when malakani palms sway in the light breeze, is the best time to visit, before temperatures get too high and the afternoon winds come in.
