In Damaraland, the //Huab Under Canvas mobile campsite offers a chance to return to the foundations of an African safari with a truly back-to-nature experience. //Huab Under Canvas' exclusive location within the //Huab Conservancy of Damaraland is 90km north west of Khorixas and ideally situated for black rhino tracking and conservation efforts.
The emphasis at //Huab is not on thread count or creature comforts, but rather on the experiential nature of safaris - the touch, smell and feel of the wild. The camp is semi-permanent and seasonal, booked and staffed on a completely exclusive, private basis for its guests. The camp's commitment to preserving wild places is exemplified through agreements with the local conservancy to promote wildlife and environmental conservation, particularly of the endangered black rhino.
The staff at //Huab are some of Namibia's finest guides, "safari magicians" and chefs working to ensure that each moment is as memorable as the last. //Huab is impossibly remote and incredibly wild - Activities include tracking desert adapted rhino, noting that this is completely private and in an area that has the highest tracking success rate in north western Namibia; exploring the upper and less crowded //Huab River in search of desert adapted elephants; nature walks and drives; as well as the possibility to visit some nearby prehistoric rock engravings.
Your experience at //Huab Under Canvas will allow you to connect with the earth, wildlife and culture a very up close and personal way, leaving you with memories to last a lifetime.
