The word “Hoada” is the Damara-Nama term for “everybody”, reflecting the core values of Journey’s Namibia and the ≠Khoadi-//Hôas Conservancy in their commitment to benefitting the community, the environment, and the adventurous travellers experiencing our beautiful country.
The campsite is owned by the ≠Khoadi-//Hôas conservancy, along with Hobatere and Grootberg Lodge, and is a testament to the efforts in creating sustainable tourism and self-sufficiency for the local communities. Managed by Journey’s Namibia, this group of spectacular accommodations in the wilderness of Damaraland will awe you, whether you are seeking camping or comfort. Through our collaborative endeavours to enhance the well-being of the local community, we prioritise the employment of local staff.
The name ≠Khoadi-//Hôas, means “Elephant’s Corner”, and you can hope to see these desert-adapted elephants as they wander the area. Although we cannot guarantee sightings as the animals roam free in these vast open spaces, do keep watch for them as they are a spectacular sight.
A stay at the Hoada Campsite will ensure you leave with your heart light, your soul restored after evenings stargazing around the fire, and renewed energy to further your travels through this remarkable country.
