Hoanib Valley Camp Highlights

Hoanib Valley Camp is located in a clearing between the low-lying jagged mountains that characterise Kaokoland in northwestern Namibia. Dunes extend westwards towards the Skeleton Coast where the desert meets the sea, while the gravelly landscapes and ephemeral riverbeds of the Sesfontein Community Conservancy host the unusual and fascinating creatures of the desert. This tented camp was opened in partnership with the local community and the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, and it makes a conscious effort to have a minimal carbon footprint. In hand with the community and local conservation organisation, Hoanib Valley Camp not only basks in one of Namibia’s most mysterious and striking places, but plays its part in sustaining a wild and mutually beneficial environment.

Useful Information
  • There are only six tented suites: five doubles, one family unit.
  • The camp occupies a remote and untamed plot, surrounded by the seemingly barren landscape, enjoying total privacy and exclusively.
  • Each tent is individually built on a wooden platform and has its own verandah overlooking the rugged wilderness.
  • Despite feeling so blissfully isolated in the unforgiving desert, there is WiFi, power, refreshingly cold drinks, and delectable food on offer.
  • The tented suites and central areas pack all the designer details, using the neutral colour palate of the desert and using soft furnishings, comfort and style to decorate the ideal desert dwelling.

Hoanib Valley Camp Game Viewing and Activities

The Hoanib Valley is the known home of the desert-adapted giraffe, black rhino, elephant, and lion. Incredibly, these large mammals survive here, where water only flows through the dry riverbeds for very short periods of time, and the elements are scathing. The desert residents also include zebra, klipspringer, zebra, oryx, and kudu, all of which are sustained by the sparse vegetation that grows in the valley. The people of this desert belong to the Herero and Himba tribes and are as much a part of Hoanib Valley Camp’s identity as the giraffe that inspired the build in the first place. Guests have the opportunity to visit an Herero settlement and enjoy the cultural experience of meeting the residents on their trip, while classic safari activities like game drives, walks, rhino tracking, and bird watching offer plenty of excitement each day. The Hoanib Valley experience is true Namibian desert enchantment.
