      Damaraland Camp

      Locally-Owned Sustainable Camp in Pristine Wilderness

      Damaraland Camp is situated in the Huab River Valley, arguably the most pristine wilderness area in Namibia, 55 miles from Torra Bay in the Torra Conservancy. It is lauded as one of the country's best camps, with sensational views of the surrounding desert plains, ancient valleys and soaring peaks of the Brandberg Mountains. The eco-friendly construction of Damaraland Camp has merged new technology with ancient methodology in an incredibly inventive manner. Another unique feature of this sustainable ecotourism venture is that it is owned and largely run by the local community, who have injected their own distinctive optimism and cheerful nature into the Damaraland Camp experience. This unusual flavor comes from the mixed heritage of the local peoples, which include Nama-Damara, Herero, Owambo, and the displaced Riemvasmakers of South Africa. Accommodation at Damaraland Camp consists of 10 adobe-style thatched units, each raised on individual wooden decking, part of which extends out to form a large viewing deck with magnificent vistas. Recently refurbished, each tent has en-suite facilities (shower only), a walk-in dressing area and built-in fan. Mosquito repellent is also provided. The spacious, thatched living area features a restaurant and bar, complete with fireplace. Evening meals at Damaraland Camp are often prepared over an open fire and served out in the open in an area near the camp, lit by an assortment of small lanterns. The swimming pool is conveniently sited next to the bar. An open campfire and outdoor boma can be enjoyed during calm evenings, with superb stargazing in the crystal-clear night skies. Large game is not concentrated year round here, with the natural cycle of rainfall dictating the seasonal movement of wildlife along the Huab River. Activities at Damaraland Camp revolve around exploring the Haub River system, featuring guided nature drives and walks. Morning and afternoon drives in search for desert-adapted elephants are a favorite. Gemsbok, greater kudu, springbok, and occasionally lions, cheetahs, elephants and black rhinos can be spotted. Interesting flora such as euphorbias and shepherd's trees can be viewed on the way to some of Africa's best known rock engravings, including the famous Twyfelfontein etchings.

        Six Countries Summer Special

        Available

        01 Nov 14 - 31 Mar 15

        Ever increasing in popularity, the summer months in Southern Africa (November – March) offer a different safari experience as short showers green the dry grasslands and clean the bright blue skies. Photographers delight in the clear light, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and rare bird sightings. Because the resident wildlife disperses to many abundant water sources, you may have to work a bit harder to see the animals, but you will have the added benefit of seeing many babies who arrive at this time of year. read more
