I am Hoanib Valley Camp. Far past the burnt orange dunes of Sossusvlei, beyond the barren lake bed of Etosha National Park, after the scorching plains of Damaraland, in the most remote area of Namibia, I sit waiting to be discovered. Against the rugged landscape of Kaokoland, I blend effortlessly into my surroundings. Colossal granite peaks erupt from the earth on all sides, providing shelter to my six luxurious tents. From your porch witness uninterrupted views of the Hoanib River Valley in all of its splendor. An oryx grazing, a giraffe sauntering far in the distance and Bruno, our resident jackal, coming to meander about the camp. Fill your days with exciting game drives out into the dusty, unforgiving landscape to track the desert elephants, giraffe and if you are very fortunate you may even come across the rare desert lions.

Highlights & Attractions at Hoanib Valley Camp

Game drives: Track desert elephants & giraffes, and if you’re very lucky, you might even spot the uncommon desert lion. Zebra, klipspringer, kudu and herds of springbok & oryx won't be hard to find within the dust-blown landscapes of the Hoanib Valley. The region is also home to one of the largest population of free-ranging black rhinos, and a day (or even a morning or afternoon) tracking these magnificent beasts is an absolute must. Nature walks: Immerse yourself in the beautiful and rugged landscape of Kaokoland. Experience rolling dunes, rocky mountains, and desert plains all crisscrossed by ancient, dry riverbeds. Cultural experiences: Visit the nearby local Herero people and get an insight into the daily life of the temporary Himba settlements that dot the nearby landscape. Learn more about the giraffe research happening in the area (please contact us for more information on project funding).
