When Outside Reopens: Visit Habitas Namibia

The brand-new concept, which is situated on a 123,500-acre wildlife reserve, offers a total of 15 custom lodges and one 10-person villa—each constructed to have minimal environmental impact.

Aiming to shake up the traditional safari model, hospitality group Habitas has launched its second hotel in Namibia, Africa. Opened in February, Habitas Namibia was crafted by the company’s in-house design team, Habitas Design Labs. The multi-million-dollar project is constructed on land owned by Comsar Properties, a company wholly-owned by Russian tycoon Rashid Sardarov.

The hotel was built using the latest sustainable technology and using renewable energy.
The guest rooms – each a custom-built private lodge constructed with minimal impact to the surrounding environment – has outdoor and indoor showers, and private viewing decks with their own telescopes for star gazing. The main lobby overlooks the property and has communal gathering areas, a restaurant, fire pits, and a variety of areas to relax and lounge.

According to CEO Habitas Oliver Ripley, he said the Habitas experience for guests and members will be focused on adventure, education and learning, including viewing and studying the surrounding wildlife, learning about local tribes, customs and history, local and international food experiences, music concerts (local and international artists) and working with on-site wellness practitioners.

“We are very happy to have chosen Namibia as our first home in Africa. We thank Comsar for its vision and support to transform a historic hunting lodge into a world-class wildlife reserve for the conservation of species. This is our first step in a long-term partnership to bring a new generation of conscious tourism to Namibia,” Ripley noted.

He said Habitas will attract new international tourists to Namibia, leading the way as pioneers of authentic responsible tourism and travel, adding that their holistic high value – low environmental – and high social impact approach, makes Habitas Namibia a unique destination with the future traveller.
