Doro Nawas Camp is situated in the ruggedly beautiful Damaraland area, on a small rocky outcrop within the floodplain of a small tributary of the Huab River. The unique lodge design allows for an uninterrupted panoramic view of this diverse and dramatic landscape, which varies from tabletop outcrops, small canyons and dry riverbeds to savannah and grassland vistas.
Guests stay in 16 units that combine natural stone and canvas walls with wood and glass doors, shaded by a thatch roof. Each unit includes a bedroom that leads out to a private veranda, en-suite facilities, an outdoor shower, and a staircase up to a private rooftop terrace. The main area comprises indoor and outdoor rooftop dining areas, bar, pool, curio shop, small gallery and a picturesque courtyard.
Activities include nature drives and walks to absorb the spectacular views and desert scenery. Rare succulent plants somehow manage to eke out an existence in this harsh landscape, and the magnificent terrain holds possibilities for sightings of the rare desert-adapted elephant along with gemsbok (oryx), springbok, ostrich and other hardy desert animals. A highlight is the fascinating expedition to Twyfelfontein with its renowned San art engravings, and the largest collection of petroglyphs – prehistoric rock art – in Africa.
