Overview

Hoanib was opened in August 2014 by Wilderness and has set Namibia alight ever since, this amazing camp is located in one of Namibia’s most wild and remote areas – you will not see another soul but can explore everything from the Skeleton Coast National Park to the Kaokoveld.

 

The camp is only accessible by light aircraft which explains the lack of other people. The scenery is stark, dramatic and beautiful and you will never want to leave. Here you can see all kinds of wildlife, and combine this isolated camp with a scenic flight over the Skeleton Coast to peer at the shipwrecks and seal colonies.

  • The Place

    Remote Hoanib rests in Namibia’s ancient Namib Desert’s famed Kaokoveld, an otherworldly landscape hewn over the ages into immense dunes and rocky mountains.

  • The Experience

    Explore the Namib Desert’s rust-coloured crags and arid plains in search of desert-adapted wildlife – elephants, lions, hyaenas, giraffes, oryxes among the regular sightings. Take a rollicking drive over the floodplain and dunes to the Skeleton Coast, a wild stretch of the Atlantic where the desert meets the sea, where white sand beaches are littered with whale bones and shipwreck remains.

    Fly back to camp for an aerial view of what seems uninhabitable but is full of life. Walk with a guide to witness that life, including the smaller creatures, a fascinating variety of birds and unusual flora. Discover the remnants of Strandloper – Beachcomber – lifestyle from centuries past. Linger in the camp’s wildlife research centre to learn about the latest local conservation initiatives.
