EHRA ECO CAMP NAMIBIA | ÝÕÐÀ ÊÅÌÏ ÍÀÌÈÁÈß
EHRA Camp is located on the northern bank of Ugab River, which is home to two herds of desert elephants. Camp is not fenced but it is safe and cosy. It is built to be environmentally friendly, which means we only used local materials and blend into the surrounding environment.
EHRA’s Treetop Base Camp Is the ultimate escape. EHRA is offering its treetop Base Camp to families who want to enjoy the benefits of the outdoors in one of Namibia’s most remote areas. Located 50 km outside of Uis, towards Khorixas in the Erongo Region, EHRA’s famous treetop Base Camp is nestled between the Ugab valley in a secluded area next to the Ugab riverbed. The perfect answer for those seeking privacy, guests can soak up the sun, enjoy unparalleled views of the Ugab valley, and, if lucky, enjoy special visits from Namibia’s free-roaming desert elephants at EHRA’s manmade water point. This self-catered escape features artistically designed kitchen facilities, a large dining space, braai area, a tree-top platform overlooking the riverbed and eco-friendly ablution facilities.

Accommodation at EHRA
EHRA base camp offers accommodation in a large tree on a wooden platform. There are showers and long-drop toilets.
EHRA’s Elephant Waterhole
Base Camp is a very popular attraction for local Ugab River elephants, with Mama Afrika being the biggest herd consisting of 12 elephants. EHRA has built a manmade waterhole close to camp, which is regularly frequented by the various Ugab elephant herds. It may be that the elephants roam through or past Base Camp during your stay, or take a refreshing shower in the water. The Ugab River was flowing several times during the year, with elephants basking in the water.
EHRA Base Camp provides the unique opportunity to camp out
in Namibia’s wilderness but within the safety of a tree house. There is a huge
wooden platform built within the strong branches of a beautiful Ana Tree. You
can pitch your tents on the platform or simply roll out your mattress and fall
asleep under the stars and occasional shooting stars. This is a magical
experience! The platform was built to provide a safe place to sleep in case
elephants visit during the
night! Elephants may come and eat on the branches of the Ana Tree or simply walk by to drink at a near-by waterhole. The platform can take up to 14 people.
Group-catering facilities: There is a large kitchen with a sink and running water, a big table and benches. A large braai/fireplace and large table which can seat at least 20 people. There are lights and enough electricity for charging cell phones or camera batteries. There is very little phone signal, so you can totally switch off from your daily life.
The Eco Loo
There are male and female eco toilets in camp. The Eco Loo is a composting longdrop toilet, which works very well. There is instructions of how to use it inside.
There are two showers with solar powered hot water. They are built beautifully into the granite hills. The showers are open air.
EHRA Camp camping: under shady trees. Hot water: the “donkey” (traditional wood-fired boiler).

Acitivities at EHRA Camp
Elephant Tracking (all day)
During the tracking guests will be given a workbook and be taught about elephants and how to track. A visit to local people: to see how they live and the problems they have with desert elephants. If the elephants are down river guests will also stop at EHRA's partner school and show work there.
Nature Walk (around 1.5 hours)
Guests are taken on a guided walk to the spring, looking at different tracks and plants and ends for sun down on the top of the cliffs. It is an easy walk.
