Hoada Campsite - Our Lodges | Journeys Namibia

Hoada Campsite

This rustic camp is spread across large spaces that can hold numerous tents or vehicles with rooftop tents, ensuring comfort in this wilderness. Each can accommodate eight persons, and there are two campsites that can hold larger groups of up to fourteen guests. All are equipped with a quaint kitchen and braai (BBQ) facilities, a flushing toilet and open-air showers, while the group sites have separate bathrooms. A charming detail of this camp is that the fire for your meals heats the water of your shower; yet another aspect of our attempts to lighten our footprint wherever possible. 

Our four permanent tented camps accommodate two people per tent and exemplify the essence of relaxed camping, offering cosy beds and private bathroom facilities. They also include a kitchen area. 

With a strong focus on nature conservation, the campsites have been thoughtfully designed to minimise environmental impact while ensuring a comfortable experience. Situated in the rocky outcroppings nearby you can also find decks to relish the view and cool off in the small pool nestled amongst the boulders with a drink in hand. In the evenings have your camera at the ready to capture the spectacular sunsets, or marvel at the brightness and clarity of the Milky Way.


Hidden amongst large grey granite boulders and flourishing mopane trees, Hoada Campsite is situated on the #Khoadi//Hoas Conservancy close to Grootberg Lodge and just 75 kilometres from Kamanjab. It is another effort on the part of the community to raise funds for their people and showcase this isolated and unspoiled wilderness, with gratifying results.

A night or two here will ease the stresses of the modern world, as you take a step back in time and savour the basics of life again, with solitude, peace, views, and wilderness at your fingertips. This is the perfect place to rest on a tour of the vast open spaces of north-western Namibia.

In addition to the campsites, there is also the option of permanent tents should you need a little more luxury, and there is wood, braai packs, cutlery, and crockery available for purchase and rent at reception.

By day you can indulge in the rich experience of learning about the local inhabitants of the area. As the sun sets, unwind by the poolside, savouring a quiet drink and basking in the beauty of the surrounding landscape. Embrace the serenity of the night as you disconnect from technology and gather around a crackling fire to prepare a hearty meal, before falling asleep under the starry sky, accompanied only by the soothing silence. A night or two at Hoada is truly a wondrous experience for the nature lover.


Hoada Campsite is an ideal destination to unwind during your exploration of the captivating north-western regions of Namibia.

Fort Sesfontein, a two-hour drive away, is another captivating attraction, having been constructed in 1896 and recently renovated. Additionally, you have the option to visit a local village in the #Khoadi//Hoas Conservancy and immerse yourself in the authentic life of the locals.
