Doro Nawas Camp is situated in
the ruggedly beautiful Damaraland area, on a small, rocky outcrop
within the floodplain of a small tributary of the Huab River.
This exciting new destination is a joint venture between Namibian
investors, the local Doro Nawas community and Wilderness Safaris.
The camp is located in the valley of the dry Aba-Huab River with
spectacular views of the Etendeka Mountains to the north and the
red sandstone cliffs of Twyfelfontein, famous for its San petroglyphs
(rock engravings) to the south.
The unique lodge design allows for an unspoilt panoramic
view of this diverse and dramatic landscape, which varies from
tabletop outcrops, small canyons, dry riverbeds to savannah and
grassland vistas. The magnificent terrain holds all the possibility
for a sighting of the rare desert-adapted elephant while enjoying
a nature drive or relaxing, viewing the stars from the rooftop
of the main area or from your private veranda. Doro
Nawas provides quality service and an excellent base for self-drive
and fly-in guests to explore the local area in game drive vehicles.
The camp also creates a wonderful opportunity to contribute to
the economic empowerment of the local community while enjoying
a luxury safari experience. The combination of Africa past and
present makes for a memorable experience.

Activities include nature drives focusing on appreciating the
spectacular views and desert scenery. Wildlife viewing concentrates
on the game found in the riverbed and along the valleys that sometimes
fill with floodwater in the rainy season. A highlight is a fascinating
expedition to Twyfelfontein with its renowned San art engravings
and the largest collection of petroglyphs – prehistoric rock art
– in Africa.

includes the desert-adapted elephant, oryx, kudu, springbok, ostrich
and variety of other species that can live in a desert environment.
