One of the fourteen regions of Namibia and home to the Himba ethnic group. Compared to the rest of Namibia, it is relatively underdeveloped. This is due to the mountainous inaccessible geography and the dryness that significantly hinders agriculture
The Kunene is probably the most remote region in the whole of Nambia. Considering how sparsely populated Namibia is in general, this is saying a lot. The famous Himba people call this place home, along with interesting desert-adapted wildlife such as elephant, black rhino and lion. The Kunene River marks the boundary between Namiba and Angola, a lifeline through the otherwise dry and unforgiving landscape.
