Straddling the iconic Skeleton Coast National Park and the remote Kaokoland region, Hoanib Valley Camp is only accessible by light aircraft. Providing a true wilderness experience in one of the most stunning locations in Namibia this is a really special place.
There are just six tents at camp, including one family tent. Each tent features an eye catching sloping roof, an en suite bathroom with both an indoor and outdoor shower, and a private shaded deck. Inside, the tents are incredibly stylish, exuding an understated bohemian luxury thanks to the soft ochre colours, exposed hardwood and various textures - including hand woven furniture from the local communities.
The main camp area includes a dining room, inside and outside lounge areas, a bar, a library and a plunge pool. All meals and drinks are fully inclusive and as with the tents, the central area is incredibly stylish and perfectly designed to make the most of its striking desert location.
Flanked by beautifully stark scenery and surrounded by unique wildlife, the main activities here are game drives to track desert adapted lion, elephant and giraffe, and excursions into the Skeleton Coast National Park. Guests can also enjoy nature walks, specialised rhino tracking experiences, visits to the nearby Giraffe Conservation Foundation, and authentic cultural encounters with the local Himba and Herero people.
Sitting on your private terrace, sipping a G&T and gazing across your vast desert surroundings you'd be forgiven for forgetting anyone else ever existed.
