Located on the north face of the Huab River Valley, ninety kilometres inland from Torra Bay on Namibia's Skeleton Coast, the camp presents endless vistas across stark plains, ancient valleys and soaring peaks. The brooding mass of the Brandberg provides a focal point almost a hundred kilometres to the south. Early morning mists, generated by the icy Atlantic and the warm land mass of the Coast drift inland along the river line, providing sustenance to life forms.
The river flows only once or twice during the short rainy season, seldom breaking through the dunes to the ocean. Wildlife is not concentrated, and the natural laws of food and water availability dictate the movement and cycles of the rare and endangered desert elephant, black rhino, oryx, kudu, springbok and other species that have come to terms with life in the tinder-dry desert environment. The scenery is quite magnificent - a harsh, wide landscape of sand, shrub and shimmering horizons under sapphire skies.
Activities centre around nature drives and walks into the Huab River system. A natural rock swimming pool is a welcome oasis in the heat of the day. Eight large comfortable tents face the valley view and each has a private bathroom and a roomy verandah. The main living area combines dining room and bar under canvas, and an open fire is enjoyed on calm evenings. The camp is the result of a community project, where the local Riemvasmaker people have worked with the camp in land and wildlife management. They have now formed the Torra Conservancy to protect the wildlife. This is the real wilderness, where the monumental beauty of nature can truly be appreciated.
