OPTION 2: KAOKOLAND
From Twyfelfontein, drive north along the C39 and C43 to Palmwag, and from there to Warmquelle and Opuwo. Push through to Epupa Falls at the Kunene River, one of the prettiest places in the country. This is the “tame” route through Kaokoland and a good introduction to the region. Plus, it’s totally doable in a 4x2 with good ground clearance.
