DAY 1 We meet at the Rua­cana Eha Lodge in the af­ter­noon and head to the Kunene River Lodge. En route (if time al­lows) we’ll visit Rua­cana Falls and the old Rua­cana power sta­tion.

DAYS 2 & 3 An es­sen­tial safety brief­ing fol­lows break­fast to en­sure ev­ery­one is com­fort­able with the chal­lenges ahead. To­day we drive along the Kunene River be­fore ar­riv­ing at the spec­tac­u­lar Epupa Falls where we’ll spend two days. There will be plenty of time to view the falls and visit a Himba vil­lage. DAY 4 Af­ter break­fast we head to Okang­wati and the heart­land of Kaokoland. We spend the night at the foot of Van Zyl’s Pass, en­joy­ing

a hearty din­ner and pre­par­ing for the next day’s rocky ride into the Marien­fluss.

DAYS 5 & 6 To­day we drive over the pass, tak­ing time to ad­mire the breath­tak­ing views. We make our way through the Marien­fluss and back to the Kunene River. Our camp­site for the next two nights is on the banks of the Kunene. There will be time to ex­plore the Marien­fluss or just re­lax at camp. DAY 7 We con­tinue to drive through the Marien­fluss and stop for lunch at the Rooidrom. We then head for a camp­site on the banks of the Khu­mib called Mar­ble Camp. It’s named af­ter a mar­ble mine in the area, which we will visit en route.

DAYS 8 & 9 Af­ter break­fast we hit the road fol­low­ing the Khu­mib River. Keep an eye out for desert ele­phants and other game. Af­ter lunch we en­ter the Hoarusib River, which takes us all the way to Pur­ros and our camp­site for the next two nights.

DAY 10 Af­ter an early start we head down the Hoarusib River, and cross over to the Hoanib River at Am­spoort. Our next des­ti­na­tion is the Khowarib Sch­lucht. Along the way we’ll search for ele­phants, rhino and other wildlife while ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the ever-chang­ing land­scapes of Kaokoland. There will be an op­por­tu­nity to re­fuel at Ses­fontein that af­ter­noon be­fore head­ing to our camp­site.

DAY 11 On our fi­nal day of driv­ing we’ll also drive through our last river on the Desert Rivers tour. We leave the Hoanib River be­hind and en­ter the Om­bonde River. To­day you’ll re­ally earn your 4x4 badge – we will be spend­ing most of the time driv­ing in thick sand and through big dust holes. It’s a great way to fin­ish off an unforgettable jour­ney. DAY 12 It’s time to say good­bye to ev­ery­one. We’ll hope­fully see each other again on the next Bhe­jane 4x4 Ad­ven­tures trip!
