NWR re-opens refurbished Hobas Camp

13 April 2017

Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) has officially re-opened its Hobas Camp in the south after months of refurbishments. Hobas previously operated solely as a campsite, but with additional rooms, a restaurant and new swimming pool, there is now more to offer to clients that frequently visit the area during the hiking season.

Hobas camp is situated at the northern end of the second largest canyon in the world, the Fish River Canyon, making it one of the main tourist attractions in the South of the country.

It is also known as the starting point of the Hiking Trail, which was previously just a campsite where hikers would camp before embarking on the hike.

The camp now boasts of six rooms, 16 camping sites, facilities and amenities, picnic sites, kiosk, swimming pool, restaurant and other activities.

NWR’s Managing Director, Zelna Hengari said the new developments at the camp serve as a reminder of Government’s efforts and commitment to developing and growing the tourism sector.

“As the custodians of the establishments within Namibia’s National Parks, NWR is pleased with these new additions,” she said.
