New Camps in Namibia and Botswana
Wilderness Safaris announces the building and opening of the long-awaited Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp, projected to be completed in July 2013.
This exclusive camp will be located in one of the most remote areas of the Kaokoveld, a land of rugged beauty featuring coastline, mountains, vast plains, and dry riverbeds. Despite its arid climate, the landscape hosts one of the world's greatest concentrations of desert-adapted elephant and lion - along with giraffe, antelope, black rhino, leopard and cheetah.
Visitors, led by expert guides, will unravel the enigmatic history of the original Strandlopers ("Beachcombers"), their stone circles lying in hidden valleys, marvel at the ancient Welwitschia plant, track herds of elephant and other wildlife, explore the Hoanib floodplains and their series of oases, and savor the endless untouched coastline.
Reservations are open! Please contact us for more information.
Wilderness Safaris is also thrilled to announce the re-opening of Duma Tau Camp in an exquisite new site on the banks of the Linyanti River in northern Botswana. This pristine area's range of habitat supports prolific wildlife populations including enormous elephant herds, abundant hippo and plains game, and copious numbers of predators. The Linyanti Wildlife Reserve is also an integral stronghold for the critically endangered wild dog.
Duma Tau's ten tented rooms evoke the age of colonial exploration and are raised off the ground overlooking the Osprey Lagoon. The main lodge features a wraparound clear-story window allowing dramatic views of the Linyanti River.
The new camp operates completely on solar energy for hot water, lighting and other energy needs, uses a water-wise waste removal system and is built of sustainable lumber and green insulating materials, serving as a prototype for future eco-friendly camps.
