Huab under Canvas, Damaraland


Huab Under Canvas is an exclusive-use camp nestled in a grove of Mopane trees on the banks of a tributary of the Huab River in the heart of Damaraland. Protected from all the prevailing winds and sun, the camp is virtually invisible from anywhere around and it carries arguably the lowest environmental footprint of any camp in Namibia.

Eight large rectangular Meru tents are raised on mobile platforms and have a basic infrastructure that allows for important comforts such as en-suite flush toilets and hot bucket showers, but the essence of the camp remains adventurous.

The area is home to Hartmann’s mountain zebra, oryx, springbok, elephant, rhino, jackal and leopard in addition to several others. Boasting the highest tracking success rate of desert adapted wildlife in north western Namibia, activities include tracking rhino with Save The Rhino trackers, exploring the upper and less crowded Huab River in search of desert adapted elephants; guided nature walks and drives as well as the possibility to visit some nearby prehistoric rock engravings. Sleep outs are also possible at an additional charge (minimum 3 night stay).

Please note: the camp will be operated seasonally between April and November, but it will also be possible to set it up at other times at special request.
