18.04.2017 / Introducing Ultimate Safaris' STELLAR ESCAPE

Last year saw the introduction of our first exclusive seasonal camp, //Huab Under Canvas. It has been a phenomenal first season with fantastic guest feedback. From being pampered in camp, to having days filled with thrilling encounters (our first season saw 100% success in our engaging rhino tracking activity) and enjoying nights entranced with exclusivity beyond most people’s expectations, our guests are looked after by a tribe of magicians who aim to leave lasting impressions. //Huab Under Canvas is redefining luxury, going back to a foregone safari era and foregoing some of the creature comforts of permanent camps or lodges of the modern safari era. We have identified a strong desire in many travellers to go back to the roots of safari, to touch, smell, feel and experience the wild, with their feet firmly in the dust that covers Africa. 2017 will see a number of new experiences offered at //Huab Under Canvas, and one of these is our new STELLAR ESCAPE. read more
