In partnership with the Giraffe Conservation Foundation.
The environmentally friendly Hoanib Valley Camp is a brilliant destination to experience the desert habitat and learn about the people and animals who call it home.
This charming desert camp is located amongst the huge mountains and sand dunes of Kaokaland, in North West Namibia. The camp was set up by a partnership comprising of local communities and the renowned Giraffe Conservation Foundation and aims to immerse guests in the desert wilderness. Despite the harsh desert environment, many animals call the area home, including elephants, rhinos and giraffes, and guests can enjoy beautiful views from the comfort of the camp. Children are welcome from the age six and over and wheelchair access is available on request.
Locally sourced materials have been used to build the accommodation, and the carefully selected colour palette and textures ensure that the aesthetic of the camp blends into the surrounding rugged landscapes. There are six rooms in total, five being double/twin bed and one especially for families. Each one is raised on wooden decking and comprises of comfortable bed(s), en-suite bathrooms, a seating area and private verandas and are entirely solar powered. Main areas include a lounge and dining area with a well-stocked bar and a fire pit.
Hoanib Valley Camp offers a range of exciting activities, including game drives through the stunning desert, where you will have the opportunity to see a wide range of animals including elephants, lions and rhinos. Alternatively, you can go on a guided bushwalk, an ideal activity for avid birders or go on a rhino tracking excursion. Cultural visits to the nearby Himba and Herero tribes are also available, which is an amazing opportunity to learn about their way of life in the desert. You can also visit the Giraffe Conservation Foundation centre to talk with the research team and learn about the fantastic conservation work that they are doing.
