Hoanib Valley Camp
Amongst the mountains and sand dunes of remote north-western Namibia is Hoanib Valley Camp, a joint venture between the giraffe conservation fund and local communities.
Hoanib Valley Camp is in the Sesfontein Community Conservancy Area, Kaokoland, in the very remote northwest of Namibia. The camp sits on the bank of the Obias River, overlooking the Hoanib River Valley, a linear oasis running through one of the most beautiful deserts in Africa, where desert-adapted elephant, giraffe, lion and rhino move freely.
Hoanib Valley Camp is open all year round. In the dry winter months of April to September, the desert is in its iconic state, whilst from November to March the area is carpeted in a lush, green blanket.
There are six tents – five twin/double and one family with one king size bed and two single beds which are raised on spacious decks, each with their own private veranda. All tents are en-suite with a separate loo and indoor showers.
This brand-new camp boasts a stylish tented lounge with a well-stocked drinks cabinet, outdoor and indoor dining areas. The fire pit is the perfect spot for an early-morning coffee or to watch the stars unfold as darkness falls.
Activities include morning and afternoon desert game drives and nature walks. Guests also have the opportunity to spending a morning with the Herero and Himba communities and learn about the giraffe research conducted in the area.
