Hoanib Valley Camp
Skeleton Coast

Enveloped by otherworldly sand dunes and phenomenal mountain vistas, Hoanib Valley Camp sits in a prime position in the Kaokoveld region of Northwestern Namibia.

This hotly-anticipated luxury camp is a collaborative venture between Natural Selection, the local communities and the world’s only Africa-wide Giraffe Conservation Foundation, so truly embraces its striking location in an ethical manner. This, along with the supreme comfort of its tents and the excellent safari sightings to be had here, means that this safari camp has been on every discerning traveller’s radar lately – even winning a spot on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s honeymoon hotlist – and we’re delighted to say that the mesmerising property lives up to the hype.

Sophisticated in style, Hoanib Valley Camp’s six tented suites blend seamlessly into their natural, moon-like environment with their earthy-toned canvas canopies and sweeping verandas. Inside, the understated interior design highlights the beautiful furnishings and comfortable beds, which are all made from locally sourced materials by local carpenters, carvers and weavers.

There are plenty of ways to experience the seemingly endless desert here, from rhino tracking and guided nature walks to spending time with local Herero people during cultural activities. It goes without saying that the game drives offered here are a huge draw, for you’re likely to witness desert-adapted lions, elephants, giraffes and more wandering the wilderness among the wind-swept dunes and winding rivers.

Friendly staff are always at hand to ensure you have a wonderful stay here, and the guides really are impressive trackers with an extensive knowledge of the local flora and fauna. Post-safari, we're sure you won't be able to resist taking a dip in the camp's inviting swimming pool: a total luxury to be found in such a remote location.

We recommend ending an unforgettable day out here by enjoying a striking sunset over the valley and sipping G&T around the flickering campfire and soaking up the dramatic surroundings, before dining under the stars and swapping stories with the other guests staying at this exclusive camp.

Discover Namibia in all its glory here, where the sheer size and beauty of this country's special landscapes is captured perfectly.

Client Testimonials

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
