Namibia - Damaraland


Damaraland Camp

Damaraland Camp is a rare venture which integrates communities, the environment and sustainable wildlife and is rated as the most successful ecotourism venture in Namibia. Located on the north bank of the Huab River Valley, 90 kilometers inland from Torra Bay on Namibia's Skeleton Coast, the camp presents endless vistas across stark plains, ancient valleys and soaring peaks. The brooding mass of the Brandberg provides a focal point, almost 100 kilometers to the south. Early morning mists, generated by the meeting of the icy Atlantic and the warm land mass along the Skeleton Coast, drift inland along the river line, providing sustenance to varied life~ forms. Damaraland Camp is hosted entirely by the Local Nama people who provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere with in my opinion the highest standards of service and care anywhere in Namibia. 'Mama Namibia' will make you feel at home and she will make you will wish you had longer to stay when its time to leave !

Nine large comfortable walk in luxury tents with doors. All tents have valley views and each has en suite facilities and a covered veranda. The main living area made from local rock and canvas combines the dining room, lounge, curio shop and bar. A feature of the camp is a stunning rock plunge pool tucked away in a mini gorge behind the camp. Dinner can be enjoyed beside a roaring fire in an open air "kraal" under a billion stars. The natural laws of food and water availability dictate the movement and cycles of the elusive and majestic desert adapted Elephant, the rare Black Rhinoceros, Oryx, Kudu, Springbok and other species that have come to terms with life in a desert environment. Even Cheetah move in and out of the area occasionally.

Damaraland Camp Attractions

The brooding mass of the Brandberg provides a focal point, almost 100 kilometres to the south. Early morning mists, generated by the meeting of the icy Atlantic and the warm land mass along the Skeleton Coast, drift inland along the river line, providing sustenance to varied life~forms. The river flows only once or twice during the short rainy season, seldom breaking through the dunes to the ocean. Damaraland Camp was rated as one of the top destinations of the 'Ultimate Safari' in the March 1999 issue of Conde Nast Traveler. The natural laws of food and water availability dictate the movement and cycles of the rare and endangered desert Elephant, Black Rhinoceros, Oryx, Kudu, Springbok and other species that have come to terms with life in a desert environment. Even Lion and Cheetah move in and out of the area occasionally.

Damaraland Camp Facilities

Nine large, comfortable, walk-in tents face the valley view and each has en suite facilities and a veranda. The main living area combines the dining room, lounge and pub under canvas, and an open camp fire is enjoyed during calm evenings. A feature of the camp is a rock swimming pool.

Damaraland Camp Additional Information

Activities revolve around nature drives and walks into the Huab River system. Star-gazing is "par excellence" because of crystal clear night skies. There are no fences in the area which gives one a complete feeling of freedom.
