Damaraland Camp is situated in the Huab River Valley in one of the best wilderness areas in Namibia, offering endless vistas across stark plains, ancient valleys and breathtaking mountain scenery. The clear skies make it an excellent location for star gazing.
This lodge was the first successful community venture in Namibia. Working with the Torra Conservancy, excursions include authentic community visits to meet members of the local village and see this partnership in action.
Guests eat together around a large table in the dining area, often sharing tales from the day.
Damaraland Camp features ten large adobe-style thatched units (including one family unit), raised off the ground with a large deck to take advantage of the views.
- Swimming pool
- Outdoor boma (fire pit)

The following optional activities are available from Damaraland Camp:
Wildlife and scenic drive
Venture out on a nature drive looking for wildlife. Damaraland is the best place in Namibia to see animals completely unfenced and in the wild. You will not see animals in large quantities here, but the sightings can be more rewarding. Desert adapted elephants are probably the best known of the region’s unique wildlife but it is also possible to see springbok and oryx in this area too.
Enjoy a guided tour of Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. Twyfelfontein boasts the best examples of bushman paintings and engravings in Southern Africa, featuring 2,500 examples dating back 6,000 years. The rock engravings are found on a number of smooth rock surfaces and most of them depict animals and their tracks.
Guided nature walks
Set out on foot with a guide and learn more about the unique plants, birds and reptiles that have adapted to live in this incredibly harsh environment.
Learn about the unique heritage of the local peoples, which include Nama-Damara, Herero, Owambo, and the displaced Riemvasmaakers of South Africa. This activity allows you to respectfully engage with these communities and it also includes a visit to the local Bergsig School.
