Damaraland Adventurer Camp
The landscape here is startling - almost other-worldly and unlike anywhere else on earth. The kind of place that once experienced is never forgotten.
Although it’s not immediately apparent, this is one of the best wilderness areas of Namibia and this harshest of environments supports a surprising variety of mammals birds, reptiles and plants. These include the rare desert-adapted elephant as well as other species tough enough to survive, such as oryx, springbok and ostrich.
As per the name, Damaraland Camp is for guests with a sense of adventure. Accommodation is extremely comfortable, however, and the extraordinary setting highly romantic. There are six dome tents positioned on wooden platforms, each shaded by a separate canvas overhang for protection during the most intense heat of the day. All accommodation is en-suite, with flush toilets and showers with hot and cold running water.
Food is of a high standard and the communal dining/bar area has an open fire for guests to stay cosy while swapping stories and sharing the events of their day under the magnificently starry sky.
Activities include game drives in 4x4 vehicles as well as game walks, breakfast in the mountains, trips to local springs, mountain biking and viewing local rock engravings.
The camp is not marketed as a stand-alone destination, only as part of Wilderness Explorations trips.
