Hoanib Camp

Accommodation in Skeleton Coast

This extraordinarily remote luxury tented camp, accessed only by light aircraft, is located next to the Hoanib River in a special concession area just outside the Skeleton Coast Park border.

With the Hoanib riverbed and its ancient floodplains being home to a host of fascinating flora and fauna and its close proximity to the Skeleton Coast National Park, this exclusive camp, with an emphasis on warm and engaging personal service, is the ideal desert sanctuary.

Hoanib Camp is luxurious without compromising on its light footprint, an important consideration in this fragile ecosystem. There is no wifi here, no TV and all electricity is supplied by their ‘solar farm’. The eight stylish tented units all have a contemporary, almost minimalist feel that borrows its colour palette from the arid surroundings. With wall-to-ceiling glass frontage and shaded decks, outside and inside feel as one and the wilderness enfolds you.

Game viewing is possible from your own deck or while cooling off in the communal pool, but there are also several options for heading out into this magnificent area. Morning and evening game drives reveal the surprising diversity of this harsh land. Desert elephant and lion, honey badger, hyena, lappet-faced vulture and entertaining meerkat (suricate) are just some of the creatures you will see here. Nature walks give an opportunity for an even deeper connection with the environment, a quiet time to focus on and learn about the myriad smaller creatures and plants that have adapted in wonderful ways to eke out an existence in this bone-dry wilderness. The rare beauty of pools of water in the midst of dunes can be witnessed at the desert oases of Klein Oase and Auses Spring, which provide further opportunities for game viewing and bird watching. Picnics and sundown cocktails are set up in remarkable and unexpected places to the delight of visitors. When wildlife researchers are back in camp after trips out in the ‘field’ they offer lively talks on the ecology and the various research projects of the region.

A 4×4 trip of a lifetime can be arranged for guests staying three days or more. This excursion takes you down to the Skeleton Coast, with a magnificent return flight to camp offering you a bird’s-eye view that will give you the full perspective of this vast place.
