Hoanib Valley Camp is one of the newest places to experience Namibia’s vast scenic landscapes. Here’s what you need to know to start planning your southern African safari to this amazing destination. It’s great for honeymooners looking for something intimate and totally unique.
Set on the banks of the Obias River in north-western Namibia, you’ll discover a truly remote luxury experience among the shifting sands and timeless hills of the Sesfontein Conservancy. Hoanib Valley Camp is a joint initiative between the conservancy and the Giraffe Conservation Foundation and looks set to become the premier eco-friendly offering in the area.
Here you will find just six elegant guest suites nestled inconspicuously among the dunes and crags of the desert. Nearby, a tented dining area offers refreshment and respite with comfortable indoor and outdoor seating areas, a bar and fire pit perfect for evenings under the stars. All the tents mimic the natural flow of their environment and are made from sustainable, locally-sourced materials.’
The interiors echo the geometric designs beloved by the local Herero people and pay homage to the giraffe – both of which benefit from this generous initiative. The furnishings are minimal, yet plush, showcasing the handiwork of local artisans. Top quality linens adorn the spacious beds and comfortable wooden chairs offer opportunities to watch the passing parade of wildlife from your private shaded deck. A laundry service, wi-fi and en-suite bathrooms with both indoor and outdoor showers complete the picture. It’s the perfect destination for a luxurious African honeymoon and for couples seeking understated solitude.
Just as the design of Hoanib Valley Camp is centred on the environment, so too are the activities. You’ll spend your days walking and driving among the resident game including zebra, kudu, giraffe, oryx, klipspringer and springbok. There’s even a chance to see some of Namibia’s rare desert-adapted rhino, elephant and lions.
Bird lovers delight in the chance to tick off Verreaux’s eagles, Ruppell’s Korhaans and Monteiro’s hornbills from their lists.
A trip to join in the research activities at the Giraffe Conservation Foundation’s field base is a highlight of any trip, as is the chance to witness the culture of the Herero tribesmen first hand.
Hoanib Valley Camp brings the incredible beauty and diversity of Namibia into sharp focus throughout your stay, without sacrificing on luxury and style. When you make a booking at this prestigious wilderness camp, a portion of the fee is donated towards the important research done here and to the local communities of Sesfontein.
