Damaraland Camp (Wilderness Safaris)
|Booking Office: c/o Schinz & Merensky Streets, Ausspannplatz, Windhoek, Namibia
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 and/or mountain bike trails 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.
Damaraland Camp accommodates guests in 10 large en-suite adobe-style thatched units that are raised off the ground, with walk-in dressing areas and enough on each deck to sit and contemplate the wonders of the desert. The spacious living area combines the dining, bar and fireplace. There is a swimming pool next to the bar. New technology combined with ancient knowledge has produced an eco-friendly yet high performance design.
Activities throughout the area are in 4x4 vehicles.
