Wilderness Safaris will ensure that guests are taken care of every step of the way, in line with the company’s stringent health and cleanliness standards. Its camps accommodate small numbers of guests and, thus, provides ample space for comfortable social distancing. The wide variety of activities on offer, from adventurous e-biking and climbing the iconic Sossusvlei dunes, to discovering rare desert-adapted wildlife on game drives along the Skeleton Coast, also allow for physical distance between guests.
What can guests expect at Little Kulala? Eleven climate-controlled, thatched suites, each with a private plunge pool, as well as a “Star Bed” on the deck for romantic star gazing. To take in the history of the region, visit Doro Nawas, where guests can see geological phenomena, petroglyphs (prehistoric rock engravings) and San rock art at Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first World Heritage Site. Lastly Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is a joint venture with the neighboring conservancies of Anabeb, Torra and Sesfontein, and hosts researchers committed to conserving desert-adapted lion, brown hyaena and more.
The camps are located in remote areas, which means that camp staff reside there for six weeks at a time and exposure to villages or towns is limited. In accordance with government regulations, staff teams will be monitored daily.
In addition, being able to host guests once again will help Wilderness Safaris continue its community support, as well as its conservation and human-wildlife conflict mitigation efforts in north-west Namibia, both of which have been a key focus for the company during this time.
