Nine large, comfortable
walk-in tents with doors. All tents have valley views and each
has en suite facilities and a covered veranda providing stunning
views of the valley. The main living area made from local rock
and canvas combines the dining room, lounge and bar under canvas.
An open camp fire area is perfect for after-dinner drinks. A feature
of the camp is a stunning rock plunge pool tucked away in a mini
gorge behind the camp. Dinner can be enjoyed in an open air "kraal"
under a million stars.
Activities revolve around nature drives into the Huab River System
in search of Desert Elephants and other specially adapted flora
and fauna. Walking in the Damaraland area is spectacular and is
highly recommended as an afternoon activity. With prior notice,
a trip can be arranged to the famous Twyfelfontein rock engravings
located nearby. A full day excursion is available to track the
endangered desert-adapted Black Rhino, subject to the availability
of a vehicle. Private vehicles for these excursions can be booked
at an additional cost subject to availability either prior to
departure or directly with the Camp Manager. Star-gazing is "par
excellence" because of the crystal-clear night skies.
The natural laws of
food and water availability dictate the movement and cycles of
the rare and endangered Desert Elephant, Black Rhinoceros, Oryx,
Kudu, Giraffe, Hartmann's Mountain Zebra, 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.
About 85% of guests who spend two nights or more at Damaraland
Camp see the Desert Elephant. Birding specials include Monteiro's
Hornbill, Carp's Black Tit, Ruppells Korhaan and Ludwig's Bustard.
Children 6 - 12 years are welcome.
There is 24 hour
electricity to all rooms.
