Khowarib Lodge & Safaris

Khowarib Lodge & Camping in Kaokoland, Namibia | Sesfontein

Khowarib Lodge is situated just outside of Sesfontein in Kaokoland in the Kunene Region of Namibia. The lodge is located on the banks of the Hoanib River. It features an outdoor pool, comfortable B&B accommodation and campsites, a lounge, bar, dining area and curio shop. All meals are served a la carte menu, except for breakfast which is buffet style. We have a variety of wildlife such as the Desert-adapted elephant and rhino, oryx, zebra, giraffe, kudu, black-backed jackal, springbok, klipspringer and many antelopes. We also have many bird species for the birders, such as Lanner Falcon, Greater Kestrel, Tawny Eagle, Burchell’s Courser, and Namaqua Sandgrouse rock martin, Cape Sparrow, larks, dusky sunbird and pale-winged Starling.

Khowarib Lodge offers quality accommodation in the Kunene region and consists of 2 family units, 12 chalets and eight campsites. All rooms feature an en-suite bathroom, private veranda, tea/coffee facilities, in-room safe, fan and mosquito nets. The camps have 220v electricity, light, ablution blocks and braai facilities.

Khowarib activities include a visit to the Himba settlements, large rock hill, desert elephant experience, rhino tracking, guided walks, game drives and birding. On our full-day guided trip through the Hoanib River, guests can see many wild animals and enjoy a lunch in nature. We offer rhino tracking just after breakfast, heading south into the Palmwag Concession, where rhinos are monitored by the Save the Rhino Trust (SRT) and oversee the safety of approximately 130 rhinos. Do an early morning visit to the Himba tribe and learn more about their history and lifestyle. We also have the rock art excursion, where guests can see some of the region’s 2,000 rock engravings.

Self-drive travellers can easily access Khowarib Lodge. A nearby airstrip caters for those visiting Namibia on a fly-in safari. The lodge is well suited for travellers seeking accommodation between Palmwag and Opuwo. The Skeleton Coast and Etosha National Park are within a days drive.
