is the gateway to the wildest and most remote areas of Northwest Namibia
further to the north, namely Skeleton Coast North
and Kaokaland West
The area is essentially a network of very large tracts of wilderness in which a handful of pioneering lodge owners work in partnership with local communities to provide sustainable conservation for some very unique and special ecosystems.
The area contains Africa's only non-reintroduced population of black rhinos, along with elephants, giraffes, zebras, kudus, oryx, and ostriches. There are also lions, leopards and cheetahs here, although they are much more elusive. It is a wonderful area for safari.
The main potential downsides are the high costs of access and the inherent scarcity of wildlife in these desert environments.UpsidesSeasonsAccommodationTrips
