Welcome to Huab Lodge
Huab Lodge stands beside the Huab River in the heart of Damaraland, some 35km west of the C35 road between Khorixas and Kamanjab.
After discovering Huab, Jan and Suzi van de Reep settled here to begin their ‘semi-retirement’ in 1992. By gradually restoring 8,000 hectares of badly damaged land and encouraging the well-being of the few remaining animals, they soon found themselves once again in full-time work, this time as custodians of this land and all living on it.
At Huab today, the amazing results of this hard labour are evident everywhere you turn. Not only are there healthy wild animals free to roam throughout the reserve, and beyond, without fences to hinder them, we humans can also enjoy a little pampering, luxurious surroundings and the benefits of an eco-friendly existence within the recently built Lodge and its bungalows.
All the associated facilities and activities that have been built up around the success of the couple’s endeavours make for a truly memorable holiday experience accompanied by undiluted exposure to something approaching the natural state of the land in this very special place . . .
. . . “the place where kopjes grow like giant mushrooms and elephants tread like ants”
– Oria Douglas-Hamilton.
Now you are welcome at Huab – where you can discover relief from the stresses of everyday life and absorb the soul of the African bush.
Soak up the relaxing ambience, delight in the attentive care, discover the wonders of the landscape and its myriad animal and plant life.
