Huab Under Canvas – Stellar Escape

Huab Under Canvas is an exclusive seasonal camp offering phenomenal luxury glamping and thrilling desert encounters, nestled in a grove of Mopane trees on the banks of a tributary of the Huab River. Protected from all the prevailing winds and sun, the camp is virtually invisible from anywhere around and it carries perhaps the lowest environmental footprint of any camp in Namibia. Tents are raised on mobile platforms and have basic infrastructure that allows for important comforts such as en suite flushing toilets, but the essence of the camp remains Under Canvas, mobile and experiential. There are provision for up to eight tents. The camp is operated seasonally between April and November, but it is also possible to set it up at other times 'at special request'.

The experience is redefining desert luxury in the modern age of permanent camps and going back to a foregone safari era, catering to people’s desire to wander and roam as they touch, smell, feel and truly experience the wilds of Africa. New for 2017, Huab Under Canvas launched Stellar Escape, set in an ancient dry riverbed on a private concession in the Huab Conservancy, offering a "sleep out" or "sky bed" under crystal-clear skies and the brilliant stars of the Namibian night sky.

Guests are escorted by their expert guide, and there is plenty of time for a leisurely pace of trekking, picnics and a cocktail or two at sunset! Sumptuous bush dinners are prepared on an open fire and when you’re ready to require your crew will leave you with a radio (for communication in case of an emergency) for an enchanting night under a billion stars.

Client Testimonials

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
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
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!

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
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
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning 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
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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
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
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.
