Visiting the Himba

Jump to last reply

We are doing a Gap trip through Namibia where we end in Windhoek. I would love to add on some extra days and go see the Himba. I contacted the people at The Cardboard Box and they recommended 7 days to do this. That sounded like an awful lot of time, so I'm wondering what is the minimum amount of time it would take to do this from Windhoek. Could you do it in 3 days or would that just be pointless? I was thinking 1 day to drive their from Windhoek, 1 day to visit and 1 day to drive back to Windhoek. Maybe the distance is too great to do this and it would not be enjoyable to pack something like this in. The main reason we can't do the 7 day trip suggested by the Cardboard Box is we don't have many days to add on past our original 15 day trip due to vacation time (and money).

In addition to length of time, is this something that can only be done with a self drive or are there tour companies that do this sort of thing? It sounds a little nerve racking trying to do a self-drive in a 4x4 through the desert! I can't imagine what we would do if the car broke down! :) Any insights are greatly appreciated!
