Terrace Bay

Terrace Bay, Kunene, Namibia

An isolated outpost and government resort and the northernmost point in the park to which you can drive, this may well be the most remote spot on earth you ever visit. Surrounded by gravel plains, it's a popular spot for anglers and people who want to get to know the desert. Don't miss the surprising Uniab River delta—a lush green oasis in a miniature canyon a couple of miles from Terrace Bay. It's also a good stop if you're going on into Damaraland. The accommodations, once part of a diamond-mining operation, are simple and basic, though each bungalow has a refrigerator, shower, and toilet. The four-room family chalet has all the modern conveniences, including air-conditioning and a fully equipped kitchen. Breakfast and dinner are provided, and there's a small shop that stocks basic groceries, beer, wine, and some fishing equipment. The resort does not accommodate day visitors.
