Situated on the northern face of the Huab River Valley and looking south toward the imposing Brandberg Mountains, Damaraland Camp offers its guests endless vistas.
Early morning mists generated by the clash between the icy Atlantic Ocean and the warm desert air of the Skeleton Coast, drift inland along the river sand canyon, providing sustenance to the flora and fauna of the region. This comfortable and friendly camp offers walks and drives in one of the best wilderness areas in Namibia. Although wildlife is not concentrated, Damaraland Camp is situated where the rare Desert Elephant roams, alongside Gemsbok (Oryx), Springbok, Ostrich and other hardy desert animals. Rare succulent plants somehow manage to eke out an existence in this harsh countryside.
The Camp has 10 tented rooms each with an en-suite bathroom including flush toilet and shower with hot and cold running water. A laundry service is offered.
The stone living area combines the dining room and pub and an open fire is enjoyed on calm evenings. There is a swimming pool next to the bar. Activities throughout the area are in 4×4 vehicles and on foot. Mountain bikes are also available for guest use.
Damaraland Camp Game Viewing
The natural laws of food and water availability dictate the movement and cycles of the elusive and majestic desert adapted Elephant, the rare Black Rhinoceros, Oryx, Kudu, Springbok and other species that have come to terms with life in a desert environment. Even Cheetah move in and out of the area occasionally.
We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed the location and camp. Area is rather desolate and foreboding but has more game animals than you would expect. Camp is well run and staff is very good. Tents are nice for the area and it can be cold at night. Food was good and overall we enjoyed the stay.
