Where The Elephant Roam
In a country jam-packed with vast, spectacularly beautiful landscapes, Kaokoland may just be the most incredible of them all. Deep in north-western Namibia, the area is a melee of towering mountains, sand dunes, and huge expanses of desert, scattered with unique wildlife and nomadic Himba settlements. It’s also one of Namibia’s most remote and wild environments, and one that not many will get the chance to discover in a lifetime. And that’s exactly why we’ve decided to build Hoanib Valley Camp. A joint venture between the local communities and the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, the world’s only Africa-wide giraffe conservation organization, the camp is an elegant, intimate affair that immerses you into the wilds of the desert.
Cradled in the protective embrace of a crescent-shaped mountain above the ephemeral Hoanib river, deep in the heart of Kaokoland on Namibia’s isolated north-western fringes. The camp, which has been designed to be removed without trace at the end of its natural life, occupies a magical spot from which to observe lions, elephants and giraffe parading among the ana trees.
