Location: Within the 352,200 hectares’ Torra Conservancy in a vast rocky area of rugged beauty. The private concession supports a diverse complement of desert-adapted wildlife, including several herds of Namibia’s acclaimed desert-adapted elephants.
Rooms: 10 adobe-styled, thatched rooms each raised on an individual wooden deck – part of which extends out to form a large viewing platform with magnificent vistas. Each room has en suite bathroom facilities (with shower only), a walk-in dressing area and built-in fan.
Facilities: The spacious, thatched main camp area features a restaurant & bar, complete with fireplace. Evening meals at Damaraland Camp are often prepared over an open fire and served out in the open in an area near to the camp lit by an assortment of small lanterns. The swimming pool is conveniently sited next to the bar. Outdoor ‘boma’ dining can be enjoyed during calm evenings, with superb stargazing in the crystal-clear night skies.
Activities: Activities at Damaraland Camp revolve around exploring the Haub River system, featuring guided nature drives and walks. Morning and afternoon drives in search for desert-adapted elephant are a great favourite. Gemsbok, greater kudu, springbok, and occasionally lion, cheetah, elephants and black rhino can be spotted. Interesting flora such as euphorbias and shepherd’s trees can be viewed on the way to some of Africa’s best known rock engravings, including the famous Twyfelfontein etchings.
Children: Children over the age of 8 are welcome.
Our Opinion: A classic, luxury camp in a land of stark desert beauty, offering the full Damaraland experience. The conservancy is the result of a highly successful partnership between Wilderness Safaris and the local Torra community that has become an inspiration throughout Africa.
