Kamanjab Rest Camp is situated at the meeting point of two Arid Eden Routes: the Welwitschia Experience, covering the most attractive sightseeing between Swakopmund and Kamanjab, and the Windhoek to Galton Experience, running from Namibia's capital city to the Galton Gate, the most western entrance to the Etosha National Park.

From here, travellers can continue either on the North West Trail via Etosha to the Kunene River and its two water falls, Epupa and Ruacana, or connect to the even more western Himba Cultural Experience, via the Grootberg Pass and Palmwag.
All four sub-routes make up the Arid Eden Route, which is one of the Open Africa projects.

Namibia's Arid Eden mainly covers the fascinating cultural and natural highlights of the north-western Kunene Region but also the most spectacular sightseeing in the Erongo and other north-central regions of Namibia.
Brandberg, Twyfelfontein, Himba Villages, Ongongo, Sesfontein, Hartmann's Valley, and the infamous Van Zyl's Pass lie on these routes through the Arid Eden, too.

Looking for a Namibia Adventure?
The Arid Eden has it all - from unique cultures, wildlife, sightseeing, landscapes and flora to affordable camp sites to luxury accommodation.

Here is suggestion how to make the most of your holidays.

Travellers driving up from Windhoek on the Windhoek to Galton Experience Route are recommended to include the Waterberg Plateau Park near Otjiwarongo into their itinerary, for two overnights, before continuing via Outjo and Kamanjab town to Kamanjab Rest Camp for a few days, during which the western Etosha National Park and a Cheetah Conservation Project may be visited on full and half day self-drive excursions respectively.
From our rest camp, you can proceed north on the North-West Trail to the Ruacana and Epupa Falls, on the Namibia/Angola border.
Turning south again, you proceed on the Himba Cultural Experience Route through Kaokoland further west, visiting various Himba settlements, Fort Sesfontein and Palmwag, before returning to Kamanjab Rest Camp and the amenities of a town nearby, after a roundtrip of about 8-12 days.
Your onward journey to Swakopmund  on the Welwitschia Experience Route takes in the rock paintings and engravings at Twyfelfontein, Namibia's first World Heritage Site, the Damara Living Museum, and, via Khorixas and Uis,  the Brandberg, Spitzkoppe and Erongo Mountains, before reaching Namibia's central coast - or proceed on an alternative route through the Skeleton Coast Park with its ship wrecks and other relicts from a by-gone era, along colourful lichen fields, and the Cape Cross Seal Reserve to Swakopmund.
With this, you may experience the entire Arid Eden on a safari of about three weeks.
