Here you will experience a different side of Namibia, not just lounging around by the pool but also becoming involved with the projects, even if it is just for the weekend. Harnas has rescued more than 380 indigenous wild animals to date, many of them are still living here.
From rooms to cabins, there is a variety of accommodation for you to choose from, but overall they are simple, old school safari with just the basics to make you feel comfortable. The rooms come with an en-suite, coffee station, Wi-Fi, minibar and either 3/4 beds or a king-sized bed.
At the main area, there is a pool and a thatch-roof outdoor area, or as we call it, the Lapa with a bar and dining area. Behind the Lapa you will find the baboon area, so don't be shy and go say hi.
The chefs will make sure that you are sorted for meals, you might even be treated to an outdoor dinner around a boma fire, but do note that you need to prepare in advance for anything else. While this is paradise, it is isolated, so make sure to pack what you might need. Luckily they speak Vegan so you should be fine in that domain.
Obviously, you can expect some activities to keep you busy. Here you have the choice of either morning and afternoon tours, sundowners and radio tracking. The morning feeding tours will give you a bit of brief history and get to join the rangers as they go around to feed the animals.
In the afternoon you can enjoy a more in-depth experience in what happens at Harnas while witnessing the animals right in front of you.
No evening can be completed without a sundowner and here you can do it in the company of lions. Just kidding, but you can definitely have your drink while enjoying the lions at a distance. Finally the radio tracking, here you will learn how they catch and release animals back into the wild.
Harnas has a simple way to make one feel involved but also completely comfortable by the pool. If "isolation, privacy and animals" is your thing, then here you go.
