The Kunene Camino

Kunene Coast, Namibia

This is an 11-day Camino with travel to the start point on the 20th of May 2022. 9 days of walking and back on the 30th of May 2022.  We will walk from below Ruacana Falls to Epupa Falls. 150km.  This is a mobile camping Camino.

There will be some formal camp sites but also a lot of wild camping next to the river.

The backup team will take care of all camp duties. So, you do not need to put up or take down your tent, do any cooking or any camp chores. You carry only your day bag.

We cater for Herbivores and Carnivores and our food is made with love.

If you are looking for a mixture of culture, hiking, wilderness, and goodwill, this Camino is for you. You will meet the OvaHimba people along our route and we will be giving out much needed basic supplies: maize meal, oil, sugar, and other essentials.

So, bring your happiness and join us for this adventure.
