Damaraland Camp is a comfortable, friendly camp, situated in the Huab River Valley in one of the best wilderness areas in Namibia; as such it offers endless vistas across stark plains, ancient valleys and soaring peaks of the Brandburg Mountains. Ten large Meru-style walk-in tents with en-suite facilities provide accommodation. The main living area is under canvas and comprises a dining room, lounge and pub. An open campfire and outdoor "boma" are enjoyed during calm evenings and stargazing is superb thanks to the crystal-clear night skies. The camp boasts a natural rock swimming pool.
Early morning mists generated by the clash between the icy Atlantic Ocean and the warm desert air of the Skelton Coast drift inland, providing precious water to the flora and fauna, all of which has adapted superbly to this harsh environment. Guests can see species such as desert elephant, oryx, kudu and springbok, occasionally cheetah and black rhinoceros as well as rare succulent plants. Activities include mountain biking, nature drives and walks. Damaraland Camp is located within the Torra Conservancy and has been successful in integrating the local communities, the environment and wildlife.
