Journeys Under Canvas camps allow guests to enjoy a quality camping experience while ‘roughing-it in style’. This exclusive Namibian camp is perfect for those who want to connect with the earth, culture and wildlife in a very up-close way.
Namibia is a vast country, even by African standards, covering an area approximately twice the size of California and four times the size of the United Kingdom, but with a population of a mere 2 million. This gives one of the lowest population densities in the world. It is also an 'ageless land’; visible through the heritage of rock art created by stone-age artists and geological attractions such as the petrified forest where fossilized tree trunks have lain for over 280 million years. When added to the space and silence, these factors all contribute to a feeling of antiquity, solitude and wilderness.
//Huab Under Canvas is a semi-permanent tented camp where you’ll feel the solitude and wilderness of Namibia in a very personal way. Located in the remote reaches of Damaraland, the //Huab Under Canvas offers privacy and exclusivity. For use only on our privately guided safaris. If you’re booking a private safari, we can include the //Huab Under Canvas as an alternative to a traditional lodge.
- 8 large rectangular Meru tents customized and suited to Namibian conditions.
- En-suite bathrooms with hot bucket showers and toilet (flush or field loo depending on the location of the camp)
- Exclusive use area in the //Huab Conservancy, with private rhino tracking and exploration of the upper //Huab River.
- Fully-catered – non-participatory camping, inclusive of three meals a day (including hot breakfast, freshly prepared lunches and three course dinner), all local drinks and limited laundry service.
