2018 is set to be an exciting year with new openings and new experiences.
Hoanib Valley Camp, Namibia – opening May 2018
A joint venture between the Sesfontein community and the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, Hoanib Valley Camp is located deep in north-western Namibia. In a country packed with vast and spectacularly beautiful landscapes this Kaokoland region, with towering mountains, sand dunes and huge expanses of desert, is certainly no exception. With six stylish, solar powered tents overlooking the Hoanib river valley, the camp is elegant and intimate, blending seamlessly with the environment. It is the perfect location to take desert drives to track desert adapted lion, rhino, elephant and giraffe, and to meet the Himba, Herero and Damara communities in the area.
