Damaraland Camp is situated within the Torra Conservancy on the north face of the Huab River Valley in the mountainous region of northwest Namibia. This eco-friendly lodge combines modern technology with ancient wisdom and enjoys a fascinating view of the rocky desert and ancient landscapes on the doorstep of Brandberg Mountains.
The 10 elevated, thatch-roofed safari cottages of Damaraland Camp are uniquely designed to capture the best views. Inside, the spacious abodes are fitted with en suite bathrooms and accented with traditional safari décor. Each cottage has a private deck ideal for enjoying dramatic vistas of the surrounding region and relaxing in between activities.
The spacious communal area features a bar, dining room, and lounge complete with a fireplace to ward off the chill in the evenings. Alternatively, the swimming pool next to the bar is a welcome sight during the arid heat of the day. Guests may gather and recount the day’s sightings and adventures around the open campfire, in prime position for stargazing in the clear night skies.
Activities at Damaraland Camp reveal a marvelous untouched desert landscape and its rare wildlife population. Large groups of wildlife do not concentrate here year round, but the thrill of discovery is achieved with the expert guides and trackers pioneering through the Huab River Valley. Guests can enjoy game drives and sundowners into the plains and valleys beyond in search of the elusive desert-adapted species, including thriving groups of desert-adapted elephant and oryx. The expert guides will accompany guests on walking or mountain biking safaris to investigate the smaller details of the surrounding environment, pointing out rare succulent plants and hardy insects. Guests making three night stays at Damaraland Camp can even participate in rhino tracking excursions.
Damaraland is an ancient region of Namibia with evidence of human activity stretching back thousands of years. Day excursions can be arranged to see the famous Twyfelfontein rock art and etchings in the granite at Brandberg. Further cultural excursions include a visit to a local farm homestead and learn about the local way of life. Follow the hiking trail up to the Etendeka Mountains nearby for a captivating view of this beautiful place.Request Information
