The founders of Natural Selection, Dave van Smeerdijk, Colin Bell, and Dr. Jennifer Lalley, bring over a century of combined experience in the safari business to Hoanib Valley Camp. Their vision was to create a safari experience that not only offers luxury but also actively contributes to conservation and community development. This vision is evident in every aspect of the camp, from its construction to its daily operations, highlighting their commitment to responsible and sustainable tourism​​​​​​​​​​​​.
