Huab Under Canvas just got more luxurious… Located in the heart of Namibia’s Damaraland, it should be high on your list for more reasons than one…
Huab Under Canvas now offers an even more enjoyable experience thanks to the latest addition of a rock pool.
Namibia is known for its heat and having a pool provides the opportunity to cool off after your morning adventures. Nothing beats a pool with a view and this is rather spectacular. It’s equipped with pool loungers and a self-help minibar.
Let’s find out more on the camp.
About the camp
Located in the core desert-adapted black rhino area of the Huab Conservancy, this tented camp is nestled in a grove of Mopane trees on the banks of a tributary of the Huab River in Damaraland. The camp is protected from the winds and sun and virtually invisible from anywhere around thanks to clever design and our favourite – the lowest environmental footprint of any camp in Namibia. There are only eight tents and each is raised up on platforms. Inside is simple with single beds, cupboards and an ensuite flush loo and bucket shower. The dining room and small lounge provide a social area and central charging station for your tech and our favourite is the fireplace deck and now plunge pool.
What to expect
This camp is under canvas, mobile and experiential for the guest. Activities are truly rewarding. Guests track to find the desert-adapted black rhino in an area with the highest success rate in northwestern Namibia. It’s less crowded too as you’ll search for desert-adapted elephants. Nature walks, scenic game drives and a stunning sleepout called ‘Stellar Escape’ awaits. Now this entire offering is exclusive use only! You’ll be there privately with nobody else around.
About the landscape
The Huab Conservancy is largely sparce semi-arid mountainous savanna (say that in a hurry!). There are wooded ephemeral river valleys that separate the hills and plains. With natural springs throughout the landscape, the desert-adapted wildlife have a water source so you can spot elephant and rhino, general plains game like kudu, giraffe, springbok, oryx, klipspringer and steenbok. Predators lurk like leopard, cheetah and the spotted and brown hyena.
