Situated 4km off of the road between Uis and Khorixas, it’s only accessible by 4x4. The location of this basic tented camp is off-road and it’s fantastic. It’s all about being in the middle of nowhere with little else but the characteristic granite boulders of the area and the possibility of elephants wondering through.
It’s quiet and peaceful in the Ugab River and the sweeping views are as impressive by day as are the brilliant dark skies by night. It’s an intimate experience. A laid-back camp where the focus is on the incredible setting and the hospitality more than the accommodation itself. You came for the elephants right? Well now you need only sit back, relax and with a little luck, keep your eyes peeled.
Sold on a 2 night fully inclusive package basis only, you’ll only get to experience this camp if you’re 16 years or older. You’re off on a guided tour with a local farmer and a local village and school visit before a sundowner walk. And that’s only on day one. The next day you’re off on a full day nature drive, joining EHRA on patrol in search and study of the ellies, add a picnic midday and return to camp in time for another epic sunset. It all sounds pretty good if you ask us.
Ozondjou Trails Camp is not much more than a basic tented camp,but it’s well located in the heart of Damaraland in the Ugab River.
Your activities are planned out and included in your stay as follows:
Day 1: An afternoon visit to a local farm, village and school ending with a short walk and a sundowner.
Day 2: The day is spent on a nature drive in the Ugab River area joining the EHRA team. In an open or closed game drive vehicle (weather dependent). Track the elephants and learn about the work EHRA does. A picnic lunch is served en route.
Get in touch with nature and see first-hand how human wildlife conflict is mitigated. The challenges faced by the local farmers with an abundance of free-roaming wildlife inhabiting the same area. It’s a chance to get involved and experience it for yourself.
