Huab Under Canvas


Huab Under Canvas is located in the Huab Conservancy in Damaraland.  Nestled in a grove of mopane trees on the banks of a tributary of the Huab River, the semi-mobile camp is virtually invisible from anywhere around.   The camp offers guests great comfort while allowing them to relax and revel in the feeling of space and solitude that makes Namibia so special. Good food and wine are an important part of the overall experience, so camp catering is of a suitably high standard. The camp is situated in an area known for desert adapted black rhino and elephant.

Chairs on the verandah allow guests to relax and enjoy the surrounding view, while a plunge pool a short walk from camp is somewhere to cool off. Camp chefs have their own unique specialities, and delicious wholesome meals are prepared using fresh local produce wherever possible.
