Travel Destinations in Northern Namibia The clickable red circles on the map mark the most interesting destinations north of Damaraland and the Etosha National Park. Travelling the northern parts – Kaokoland, Ovamboland, Kavango and Caprivi – is very rewarding and renders unforgettable experiences of authentic Africa. Absolute highlights are the mighty Victoria waterfalls in Zimbabwe and Zambia.
To tour this region requires, however, more preparation and equipment. This applies in particular to tough Kaokoland in the north-west, home of the semi-nomadic Himba people. Most of the tracks are in bad condition. A well equipped four-wheel drive with a GPS navigation system is a necessity. This also applies to many corners of the Caprivi and to Botswana.
For the entire northern region malaria prophylaxis is recommended.
