Damaraland Camp is renowned as one of Namibia’s best camps, providing breathtaking views of the rugged Damaraland terrain from desert plains to ancient canyons to the soaring peaks of the Brandberg Mountains.
Each of the camp’s ten adobe-style thatched tents are built on raised platforms that extend out from the tent to create a large viewing deck with expansive views of the desert. The camp blends modern techniques and ancient construction techniques to form eco-friendly rooms that blend in with their desert setting. There are nine standard tents including seven with twin beds and two with double beds. There is one family unit which sleeps four in two adjacent rooms connected by a walkway with a door. In addition, the rooms feature built in fans and an en-suite bathroom with double sinks and a shower.
The camp is located in the Huab River Valley in the Torra Conservancy. The Conservancy sits within one of the driest and most desolate regions in all of Africa. Because water is scarce, this scrubland is home to a varied assortment of desert-adapted wildlife including elephants and black rhinos. Gemsbok, kudu, springbok, Hartman’s mountain zebra, southern giraffe, gemsbok, lion, cheetah, and spotted and brown hyena call this desert home too. Birdwatchers will delight in the over 240 species recorded here.
