We caught up with Simon, the general manager of Hoanib Valley Camp to find out more about life in the area.
“Elvis Machana Swenyeho.”
“Liashulu Village, which is located east of Mudumo National park in the Zambezi Region (formerly the Caprivi Strip).”
“I was introduced to nature and the outdoors at the age of five years by my late father who by then was employed by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. He could take me along during every school holiday to the camps he was working at. In 2010 while doing an electrical internship with an off-grid power company that offered services to almost ninety percent of lodges in Namibia, I had an opportunity to work on most camps in Etosha National Park, Damaraland, and Kaokoland. Two years later I joined a safari company as a maintenance manager. I boosted my guest relations and became a host. That’s how I got into the industry.”
“General manager for Hoanib Valley Camp, located in the Sesfontein Conservancy on the banks of Obias river overlooking the Hoanib river.”
“I run the broad day to day operations of the camp.”
“The biomes, lovely ecosystems, and amazing contrasts.”
“The spectacular landscapes, the few animals and how they survive, the Nomadic Ovahimba and their settlements and the true African sky.”
“To visit this beautiful arid destination is amazing, but to be part of the adventure is memorable.”
