Damaraland Camp is located in the Twyfelfontein area of western Namibia.

Situated a large private conservancy in the basalt mountains to the north of the Huab river, this is a luxury camp is rather separate from the main cluster of lodges in this area.

Built across a small upland valley, the camp consists of an open-sided adobe and thatch public area with a small pool. Guest accommodation is in ten comfortable rooms ranged either side.

Activities are centred on vehicle safaris in search of desert elephants and other wildlife down in the river valley, plus walks, bush meals and village visits closer to camp. It is also possible to visit the main rock-art and geological sites down in the Twyfelfontein area itself, but we much prefer to head to more remote and little-visited rock-art sites tucked away amongst the wild landscapes to the south of the river.

Damaraland Camp is a very intimate, friendly and well-hosted place which tends to be most often included in high-end flying safaris, primarily so guests can get a high chance of encounters with desert elephants. We also include it in overland guided and self-drive trips, for guests prepared to pay a little more for a more exclusive experience.

Modest downsides are that it can get very windy in camp and that the main safaris areas are shared with vehicles from other camps.
