Hoanib Valley Camp
Hoanib Valley Camp is on the banks of the Obias River and overlooks the ephemeral Hoanib River in the Kaokoland region of Namibia. The camp is within a community conservancy and just outside the huge Palmwag Concession. Temporary Himba settlements dot the landscape, and the area is characterised by rolling dunes, rocky mountains and desert plains all criss-crossed by ancient, dry riverbeds.
Accommodation & Facilities
There are just six stylish tents at Hoanib Valley Camp. Each sits on a wood, bamboo and recycled composite deck, one of the efforts to reduce the footprint, along with solar power and locally sourced furniture. Bathrooms are ensuite and each tent has its own private verandah. There are sofas and other spots to rest and relax in the main lounge and, where possible, meals are taken al fresco.
Wildlife & Activities
Walks and drives alongside guides and conservationists are on offer from Hoanib Valley Camp. These may be to track desert elephant or free ranging rhino, or to learn more from the giraffe conservation team. It’s also possible to visit the local Himba and Damara communities where you can learn more about desert living.
