This semi-mobile camp is set up in the remote Huab Conservancy in northern Damaraland. Found on the banks of the Huab River, its green canvas tents sit amongst the shade of mopane thickets.
The area is remarkable for its population of desert-adapted black rhinos, which survive in spite of the harsh conditions.
Eight tents sit on raised platforms, all with en-suite flush toilets and bucket showers. Although comfortable, this simple camp remains true to the essence of mobile camping, blending seamlessly into its natural surroundings.
Available activities include tracking of desert-adapted elephants and rhinos, nature walks, scenic game drives and visits to the nearby Twyfelfontein petroglyphs.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Booked on an exclusive basis, Huab Under Canvas offers total seclusion and freedom to explore one of Damaraland’s most interesting ecosystems. The camp works closely with Save the Rhino, who have been instrumental in ensuring the survival of this dwindling population of desert-adapted rhinos.
