“We pride ourselves on offering journeys that change people’s lives in order to build conservation economies in Africa and are delighted that the editors of Condé Nast Traveler have endorsed Hoanib as one of the world’s best new remote hotels. The camp truly embodies a sense of place, offering travellers unparalleled luxury in one of the most secluded areas of Namibia; unlike anything that can be experienced elsewhere”, said Mike Wassung, CEO of Wilderness Safaris Namibia.

Described by Condé Nast Traveler as an “African game changer” and a “state-of-the-art camp with eight tented bedrooms”, Hoanib is located in the Palmwag Concession, straddling the Palmwag area and the Skeleton Coast National Park. It combines luxurious comfort with a low-impact design that is sensitive to the fragile desert environment, operating on 100% solar power. The area is home to desert-adapted elephant, as well as gemsbok, giraffe, springbok and occasionally lion.

Hoanib can be combined with Wilderness Safaris’ other exceptional offerings in Namibia’s north-west region to create an authentic and evocative desert experience, from Damaraland and Desert RhinoCamps to Serra Cafema in the far north.

The 2015 Hot List will be published in the May issue of Condé Nast Traveler or click here to read the online article.
