About This Accommodation

Damaraland Camp is a little haven in the middle of nowhere. Its elevated adobe-style thatched chalets gaze out over a beautiful valley offering silence and tranquility after a day out on the reserve. The camp provides gorgeous views of a grassy flatland in the foreground with reddish mountains in the background. The gentle winds and endless skies offer incredible serenity.

We love the look and feel of Damaraland Camp. The décor is clean, spacious, and comfortable and we find this camp to almost induce a spa-like refreshed feeling. The main areas are very inviting and the communal dining and friendly staff provide a really warm and pleasant environment. The food here is fantastic and they offer wine pairing at dinner. Regular activities include long nature walks, visits to Burnt Mountain and the Twyfelfontein rock art, and relaxing at the camp and its pool. This is an excellent base to go desert elephant tracking, but don't expect to see the Big Five because Damaraland is more about the scenery.

Damaraland Camp is sustainably owned and run by the local community and we think they do an outstanding job. We highly recommend it!

Videos from Damaraland Camp

  • Damaraland Camp in the Huab River Valley, north-west Namibia is a shining example of the 4Cs -- Commerce, Conservation, Community and Culture. It is renowned for being the first genuinely successful Namibian joint venture between the community (Torra Conservancy) and private sector (Wilderness Safaris). Experience sensational desert views, unique desert-adapted wildlife, authentic community visits and warm Namibian hospitality - all from the luxury of Damaraland Camp.
  • A Wilderness Safaris journey stretching from dune to sea, Sossusvlei to Damaraland, Skeleton Coast to Kaokoveld… Endless vast wilderness | Of animals | Of wanderers and nomads | Of sand and sea
  • Damaraland Camp and the Torra Conservancy are proof that when ecotourism and local communities join forces, the result is tangible benefit for people, a change in attitudes and an increase in wildlife numbers. We were the first safari operator to create an equity joint venture with a rural Namibian community. The result: increased employment, higher standards of living and increased wildlife.
