Damaraland Camp


Damaraland, Namibia

Situated on the northern bank of the Huab River Valley and looking south toward the imposing Brandberg Mountains and the region’s endless rock vistas, stark plains, ancient valleys and soaring peaks, Damaraland Camp provides an experience of wild Africa like no other. Early morning mists, generated by the clash between the cold Atlantic Ocean and the warm desert air of the Skeleton Coast, drift inland along the sand river canyon, providing moisture to sustain the flora and fauna of the area.

Damaraland Camp accommodates guests in 10 comfortable tented rooms, each with en-suite facilities including flush toilets and showers with hot and cold running water. The stone living area combines the dining room and pub, and an open fire crackles on calm evenings. A refreshing pool is located next to the bar area.

Wildlife in this area fluctuates with the rainfall and the flow of the Huab River. Guests may see the uniquely adapted desert elephants, gemsbok, greater kudu springbok, and occasionally cheetah and black rhino. The area is also home to intriguing flora such as euphorbia and shepherd's trees. Activities include nature drives, walks and mountain biking. Visitors may also have an opportunity to visit some of Africa’s best rock engravings.
