With only eight tents, an intimate dining area and an inviting fire pit, the Camp exudes an uncharacteristic warmth.

Situated on the NamibRand Private Nature Reserve, this incredible area is a model for private conservation in Southern Africa. It's main objective is the conservation of the land on a self-sustainable basis.
The tents are pitched on wooden platforms and are comfortable and spacious. The en-suite bathroom consists of double vanity, shower and toilet facilities. A generous deck allows for safe sleep-outs under the stars.

Etosha, meaning ‘place of dry water’, and refers to a flat calcrete depression (or pan) of about 5 000km². The ‘Pan’ (overlooked by the Onguma Reserve) provides a great, parched, silver-white backdrop of shimmering mirages to an area of semi-arid savannah grassland and thorn scrub. The pan itself contains water only after very good rains and sometimes for only a few days each year, but is enough to stimulate the growth of a blue-green algae which lures thousands of flamingos.

You may wish to enjoy your breakfast on the boat while meandering down the Kwando.
"The early morning suns rays reflect off the waters edge, the soothing sound of the water as it is gently broken by the bow of the boat cutting through the waters surface. The varied landscape of papyrus islands, reed floodplains and moving past petrified dunes, leaves me in awe of the vast open space. Around every corner a new bird, antelope or a carnivore quenching its thirst. A sudden fountain of water followed by a deep grunt reveals the large pod of hippos curiously gazing upon our arrival. The boat comes to a halt."
Morning or afternoon Game Drives within the Bwabwata National Park.
"As the midday sun retreats and the afternoon shadows lengthen we depart on a journey, an adventure to discover the unknown behind every bend. Observing every branch for a rare endemic bird, to be rewarded instead by an elusive leopard. The silence broken by the deep low rumble vibrating through the bush, which could only belong to a large herd of elephants. Out of nowhere they appear with a focused determination towards the life-giving water up ahead. Knuckles white, as I grip the seat of the game viewer, relishing the moment as a highlight of my journey through Africa."
Explore the fauna and flora up close and personal on a bush walk with our experienced guides.
“Look”, says our guide Beaven, pointing past the big camel thorn tree in front of us at the herd of buffalo. As our guide describing the behavior we get an insight into the lives of these extraordinary beasts. He shifts our attention swiftly to the tracks of the hyena that passed the night before followed by her cub. I am in awe of the knowledge Beaven has parted. He teaches us the medicinal value of the knobthorn tree, the techniques to use for making rope and the ‘toothbrush’ bush.
