Damaraland Camp is a comfortable, friendly camp, situated in the Huab River Valley in one of the best wilderness areas in Namibia; as such it offers endless vistas across stark plains, ancient valleys and soaring peaks of the Brandberg Mountains.
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 Huab River 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.
This Huab River Camp offers up ten large en-suite, adobe-style thatched units that are raised off the ground, each with a walk-in dressing area and a large deck on which to sit and contemplate the wonders of the desert.
The stone living area combines the dining room and bar and an open fire is enjoyed on calm evenings. The spacious living area connects the dining area, 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.
An open campfire and outdoor 'boma' are enjoyed during calm evenings and stargazing is superb thanks to the crystal-clear night skies.
Large wildlife is not concentrated year-round here, the natural cycle of rainfall dictating its seasonal movements along the Huab River.
Activities include nature drives, walks, and mountain biking during which guests can see species such as desert-adapted elephant, gemsbok, greater kudu springbok, and occasionally cheetah and black rhino as well interesting flora like euphorbias and shepherd's trees.
The area also has some of Africa's best rock engravings including the famous Twyfelfontein etchings.
Family and child-friend accommodation and activities are on offer.
