  • Description
  • Facilities
Nhoma Safari Camp is a small, activity orientated tented camp located 80 km from Tsumkwe within the traditional area of the Ju/’hoan San or Bushmen. The camp is adjacent to a Ju/’hoan village and, on a four-wheel drive track, is 40 km from the Khaudum National Park.

Accommodation comprises 10 safari tents with proper beds and en-suite bathrooms offer 180-degree views over the Nhoma Omuramba fossil river bed, with meals and drinks provided in the central dining area. There are no electrical points in the tents, but batteries can be charged in the dining area and all lights are solar powered.

Activities consist of traditional games on the first afternoon, a half-day hunt the next morning, and the making of hunting equipment after the hunt. This is followed in the evening by the powerful healing dances. A five-day bush craft and tracking course is also offered on set dates. The best Bushman hunters will demonstrate and teach their hunting techniques, with special emphasis on reading tracks.

In addition, day and overnight tours are offered to the Khaudum National Park and can be added on to the normal two-day stay. Khaudum escorts, whereby a guide and vehicle accompany a group through the park, are also offered.
