• Location: Namibia, Damaraland
  • Type of Accommodation: Lodge
  • Comfort Level: Comfortable


Situated on the northern face of the Huab River valley and looking south towards the imposing Brandberg Mountains, Damaraland Camp is rated as the most successful eco-tourism venture in Namibia. It's also big game country, and although wildlife is not concentrated like it is at Etosha, Damaraland Camp is situated where the rare desert-adapted elephant roams alongside gemsbok (oryx), springbok, ostrich and other hardy desert animals. Lion and black rhino are also sometimes seen. 

This comfortable, friendly camp offers guided nature walks and game drives in one of the most beautiful wilderness areas in Namibia. And when you aren't out looking for wildlife, you can set off on a mountain bike excursion or head for to Twyfelfontein - a World Heritage Site - to view ancient Bushman rock art.


  • Remote Damaraland location with luxurious comfort
  • Captivating scenic beauty
  • Rare desert elephants, lion & rhino
  • Owned & run by the local community
  • Sustainable approach to the environment

The simple and stylish main camp features extensive shady decks with scattered seating and a long communal dining table.

Adjacent to the bar, you'll find the camp's swimming pool where you can enjoy a refreshing swim after your activities, or you can laze around on the large day beds, admiring the desert landscape.

The campfire at Damaraland Camp sets the atmosphere in the evening, and is the perfect place to watch the sunset with a drink in hand after a day's safari activities.

After dark, lanterns are lit to illuminate the walkways, and stargazers can enjoy an amazing, star-studded African sky.

General Facilities

    Swimming Pool


Excellent meals are prepared with fresh produce that is flown into Damaraland Camp on a regular basis. The chefs and their team are very creative with their excellent African dishes and fine desert cuisine.

Meals can be enjoyed at the long dining table in the main area, but more often you’ll dine outside around the open fire, your table lit by lanterns.

Traveller Reviews

  • We had a great time in Namibia, especially in Damaraland where the lodge and activities were just fantastic.

  • Damaraland Camp is definitely a unique place with a very friendly and exotic atmosphere. Travellers should be advised that driving there takes a while.

"This Camp offers comfortable accommodation and great food. But what draws most is the sureal views, an opportunity to see the desert adapted elephants and the silence. When you leave your soul will feel renewed."
