Hoanib Valley Camp


The beautiful Hoanib Valley Camp was created out of a joint venture between the local communities and the Giraffe Conservation Foundation.

This small stunning camp is a remote retreat and can be accessed by light aircraft from Windhoek. Road transfers are possible from the capital which would be around an 8 hour drive or 7 hours from Swakopmund. If you decide to self drive then it is possible to park at Fort Sesfontein and enjoy the final part of the journey on a game drive provided a member of the camp staff.

The tents are raised from the ground but not too high so they are easily accessible without lots of steps. Each of the tents come with private verandas overlooking the valley and with a rugged mountain backdrop behind. The tents have comfortable beds, bedside tables, a seating area, wildlife artwork and ensuite facilities with both indoor and outdoor showers. Five of the tents can accommodate 2 people and there is one family tent that can comfortably sleep two adults and two children.

The accommodation is booked on a full-board basis, including all meals which are provided in the main building dining room or outside on the deck.
The fire pit is a perfect spot to unwind at the end of the day and socialise with other guests if you wish to.


A restaurant, bar, dining room, lounge, fire pit, free WIFI, viewing deck and laundry service. Solar energy provides the electricity and water heating.

Beautiful country with a wide range of opportunities on offer – wildlife viewing, varied scenery, culture and memorable sunsets. The colours, shapes and shadows of Deadvlei at dawn will stay with me forever. Very helpful and informative discussions with Alan Godwin before booking.  Everyone in country did their bit at the right time in the right place. I felt very well looked after. The care and attention to detail was outstanding and this helped me to relax and enjoy the experience and enabled me to begin to make new but different memories.
