Damaraland Camp is located in the Huab River Valley, in one of the most pristine wilderness areas in Namibia. This fabulous camp is owned and now largely run by the local community. The camp offers superb views over the surrounding plains, valleys and of the Brandberg Mountain. The Camp integrates the community, environment and wildlife on a sustainable basis. It has won an impressive collection of honors, including the 2005 WTTC Tourism for Tomorrow Conservation Award.
Evening meals are served in an open area, close to the camp, lit by small lanterns. The swimming pool is conveniently located next to the bar. There are 10 elevated chalets, with thatched roofs. They have all been recently re-furbished and each has an en-suite bathroom and a large deck with great views of the surroundings.
Activities include guided nature drives in search for desert-adapted elephants; gemsbok, greater kudu, springbok, and occasionally lion, cheetah and black rhino can also be spotted. Walks and mountain biking are also available. Trips to some of Africa’s best known rock engravings, including the famous Twyfelfontein etchings, can be organized from Damaraland Camp.
This region is a vast prehistoric grassland, almost the epitome of rugged beauty and definitely remaining an untamed environment. It is home to Namibia’s highest mountain – the Brandberg – as well as the amazing Petrified Forest, which has incredible examples of fossilized trees.
