Hoanib Valley Camp is situated in the remote Sesfontein Community Conservation Area in Namibia’s Koakoveld – one Southern Africa's last and greatest untouched wilderness areas. The camp overlooks the picturesque Hoanib River Valley, a linear oasis of vegetation that runs through the oldest desert on earth, the magnificent Namib.

This wonderful eco-camp was built in partnership with the Sesfontein community and the Giraffe Conservation Foundation – the most successful, longest-running giraffe research organisation in the world. They are experts on the desert-adapted giraffe species of the Hoanib area, and monitor the region’s elephant and general game. Grab the opportunity to learn more about the foundation’s research into these long-legged giants.

The focus at Hoanib Valley Camp lies on the astonishing diversity of desert-adapted animals that survive in the Koakoveld’s demanding ecosystem. Spend your days tracking these giraffe, elephant, springbok, oryx and lion on desert game drives and guided nature walks. The Himba, Herero and Damara communities of the area have ingenious ways of thriving here and will teach you how to adapt to the desert environment.

The camp’s blockbuster, however, is the stargazing. Spend your evenings around the campfire after dining al fresco, and be dazzled by the jaw-droppingly sensational African night sky in a place with very little light or air pollution.

Leaving virtually no carbon footprint, Hoanib Valley Camp runs on solar power – enough to maintain low voltage charging points and Wi-Fi throughout the camp for your devices.

'It is hard to understand just how remote the location of this lodge is but you will be amazed by the genuine wilderness. The lodge is surrounded by the never-ending dunes of the Namib desert. It is one of the only locations in the world where you can look forward to spotting desert-adapted lions.'
