Take a tour in beautiful Kunene Region!
We are not a hotel, but a small guesthouse in the middle of the busy town of Opuwo and strive to set an example in conservation-centred, sustainable tourism.
All our stops outside Opuwo are taken in the wilderness and are designed to minimize environmental impact, exploring the game, birdlife and the traditional homes of the himba people
I am trained and experienced game guide and worked both with reserachers, tourists, photographers, etc. I do speak the local language , being local myself, but also english and africaans. Rikondjira guest house in Opuwo was built up and run successfully by John and his wife since 2010.
Since 2014 me, Parivi Tjivinda and my wife, who grew up in Etanga, a traditional himba village 130 km west of Opuwo, joined up in a low cost tourist guiding and an alternative facility to luxary safari lodges and guiding tours in northwest namibia.
We are supported by a strong and motivated spirit that our local background and experiance in qualified guiding, tracking, including geographical and historical knowledge .
Our small newly established company, The Kunene Tour Operator and Accommodation Service, work in close cooperation with the Rikondjira guesthouse with a kitchen team to ensure that you will feel comfortable and well looked after during your vacation in Kunene.
We believe that not all tourists are having the motivation and incentive for high costs tourism. We also guaranty the flexibility and practical arrangements of our guiding to be for your conviency. The personal touch and hospitality is our signum and we hope you experience your holiday a relaxing and unforgettable experience.

What some of our customers are saying
Being a researcher in Kaokoland for many years, I can highly recommend Parivi as a knowledgable and ardent guide. He has the interest of his own culture and the service minded needed.
