Opened in May 2018, Hoanib Valley Camp overlooks the seasonal Hoanib River and will offer visitors a luxury base from which to explore the wonders of one of the last true wildernesses of Namibia.
Accommodations at the camp will consist of six spacious and stylish tents with an en suite bathroom. Each eco-friendly tent is solar powered and enjoys panoramic views of the game-rich Hoanib River Valley.
The Hoanib River Valley is located in the famed Kaokoland of north-western Namibia. This area is still considered some of the most remote terrain in a country known for desolate spaces. The region is also renowned for two of its more famous inhabitants: the desert-adapted elephants of the Namib, and the nomadic Ovahimba tribe. While relatively new on the tourism scene, it is very well known to us here at Piper & Heath. The Hoanib River featured strongly in Chris’s pioneering ‘Rivers of Kaokoland’ safari which he developed and guided in 2002-2003. This was one of the first destinations Chris shared with Emily, his wife.
