Located in Namibia’s remote northwest within the astounding landscapes of the Kaokoveld, Hoanib Valley Camp offers a slice of luxury amid towering mountains, sand dunes and vast expanses of desert. This unique wilderness is home to desert-adapted wildlife and fascinating, nomadic Himba tribes. The camp is situated in the Sesfontein Community Conservancy and boasts a remarkable position at the end of a hidden valley surrounded by jagged mountains with views of the intermittent Hoanib River in the distance.
In partnership with the local Sesfontein Community and the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (the world’s only Africa-wide giraffe conservation organisation), Hoanib Valley Camp accommodates guests in just 6 spacious tents, including one family tent. There is a heavy focus on conservation and the camp has been built in an eco-friendly manner. The tents sit on decks made from wood, bamboo and 70% recycled-material composite and the camp is powered entirely on solar energy – making sure to leave virtually no footprint on the environment.
The rooms blend seamlessly into their surrounds and feature an ensuite bathroom and private veranda. The interior colours are neutral, reflecting their environment and furnished with locally made products from Himba carvers and local Rundu carpenters. The family tent is a bit larger than the other five, as it has two extra twin beds, separated by a curtain that can be opened and closed for greater space or added privacy.
