Damaraland Camp, Damaraland
Excellent standards without the big price tag
Our rating: Premium | Property style: Tented Camp
Tucked away in Damaraland’s Torra Conservancy in the valley of the Huab River, Damaraland Camp offers guests unrivalled access to one of Namibia’s best wilderness areas with huge open plains, ancient valleys and beautiful purple mountains in the background. Ten canvas sided, thatched-roof rooms, including a family room, provides a wonderfully intimate wilderness experience, complimented by some friendly staff and excellent guides in Namibia. All of the rooms are raised up off the desert floor with large private decking areas at the front on which to enjoy a good book and the views across the ancient desert. The main area of the lodge has a dining room, lounge area with sofas and open sides so the views can be enjoyed. A swimming pool, campfire area and outdoor dining space are also found at the main section of the lodge. Guided nature walks and drives are the order of the day and great way to see and learn more about the incredible, adapted animals and plants found in the area. Day trips can also be organised to the nearby rock art sites and the area supports a surprising variety of birdlife, especially during the wetter summer months.

Doro Nawas Camp, Damaraland
Tucked away deep in Damaraland and run in conjunction with the local Doro Nawas community, Doro Nawas Camp is a wonderful camp for guests looking to explore the vast expanses of Damaraland and learn more about the people who live in this harsh environment. Although a relatively large camp at 16 rooms, including a family room, the camp is sprawled out across a large area so the remote and isolated ambience is preserved. The indoor sleeping areas are spacious and beds can be rolled out onto their large private deck so they can spend a night sleeping beneath the starry skies. Bathrooms are found at the rear of the rooms and have fantastic outdoor showers with plenty of hot running water. The main area offers wonderful 360-degree views across Damaraland, an open plan lounge and dining sections as well as a small swimming pool. Game drives, guided walks and visits to the local community who help run the lodge and maintain the conservancy can be enjoyed at the camp. The location of the lodge also means guests can visit the nearby San Bushmen rock art site at Twyfelfontein.
