The Hoanib Valley Camp is in the spectacularly beautiful Kaokoland which lies in the northwestern region of Namibia.
The unique tents blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings, and guests experience unforgettable wildlife sightings. The Hoanib Valley Camp is open all year round.
The Hoanib Lodge features six Luxury Tents for which patterns, colours and textures and patterns of the Hoanib are used. Some of the furniture is shaped by the local Himba carvers and Rundu carpenters while the baskets are weaved by the people of the Omba Project in Windhoek.
The beautifully appointed Luxury Tents are set on decks which are made of bamboo, wood, and 70% recycled-material composite. This camp is entirely solar powered which allows for carbon emissions to be kept to a minimum.
The summer months (December to March) fall into the green season during which time the rain comes; the rocky landscapes are changed into vibrant scenery. Depending on the amount of rainfall, the riverbeds flow. Although temperatures can be high, this is a beautiful time to visit during which the sunsets are often characterised by heavy clouds and short rain bursts.
Midwinter, which is from May to July, usually has cooler temperatures in the mornings and evenings. By October, this landscape in Namibia is at its driest and the temperature at its warmest. Genuinely incredible wildlife sights await when the desert-elephants start to gather around the last drops of water.
Guests enjoy thrilling safari drives through the dry sand riverbeds and explore the desert-adapted lions, elephants and giraffes. Tracking the endangered black rhino is an unforgettable wildlife experience. Travellers also have the unique opportunity to visit the Giraffe Conservation Foundation field-base where they can meet the leaders in giraffe research.
While spending time with the iconic Himba and Herero people, visitors learn of their fascinating lifestyle in such a harsh climate. During the guided nature walks one discovers the smaller flora and fauna of the desert.
