Hoanib Valley Camp
Set amongst the mountains, dunes and desert of Kaokoland in the wild north-west of Namibia lies a sophisticated and elegant retreat, the Hoanib Valley Camp.

Days are spent tracking endangered rhino, desert-adapted elephant, and of course desert-adapted giraffe, before retiring to your private veranda to marvel at the magnitude of your surroundings (G&T in hand).
