Khowarib Community Rest Camp

This campsite is a convenient stopover for people driving between Opuwo and Twyfelfontein. It is situated on the banks of the Hoanib River and offers a spectacular view of the desert mountains of the Khowarib Schlucht (gorge).

The Hoanib river that runs through the camp is one of Namibia's few flowing rivers and attracts many bird species. The campsite is ideally situated to explore the spectacular Kunene Region and is a perfect place to relax, take short walks, photograph landscapes, enjoy the varied flora and fauna and soak up the atmosphere of rural Namibia. Birdwatching here is great as many birds are attracted by the perennial spring in the Hoanib River.

Facilities include four well maintained campsites overlooking the river with braai areas and some shade, basic ablution facilities (new facilities under development). Two very private campsites next to the stream, shaded by palm trees. There are some basic traditional Damara and Himba huts as well as a bar with cold drinks & snacks. There is no electricity. Local guides are available.

This is a community operated camp and it is not always possible to contact them in advance to make bookings. Arrange your campsite on arrival.
