Just outside Khorixas, the traditional capital of Damaraland, Khorixas Restcamp is an oasis of comfort in this vast and arid desert.
Accommodations at the camp consist of a variety of rooms. There are ten Single Rooms with an en suite bathroom with shower, a tea station, and air conditioning. The twenty-six bush chalets have two beds each and even include a barbecue area for every two rooms. The camp has two family units that are comprised of two bedrooms and a self-catering kitchen and also equipped with TVs. For the budget traveler, there are twenty-five campsites with a kitchen area, a barbecue, and shared bathrooms.
The camp is located just outside the city of Khorixas in the dramatically beautiful Damaraland en route to the ancient Twyfelfontein engravings. The lodge 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 who can go for days without water. 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.
