overview

Located on a rocky outcrop in ruggedly beautiful Damaraland, Doro Nawas Camp is set on the floodplain of a small tributary of the Huab River. The unique lodge design allows for unspoilt panoramic views of this diverse and dramatic landscape through either the lodge's large glass windows, its open roof-top terrace, or from your chalet's verandah. Evenings are a spectacular event as you sleep out on your verandah under the star-filled sky. Guided game drives are an excellent opportunity to appreciate the spectacular views and desert scenery.

Game viewing concentrates on the wildlife found in the riverbed and along the valleys that sometimes fill with water in the rainy season - if you are lucky, you may see the rare desert-adapted elephant or black rhino. Another highlight is an expedition to nearby Twyfelfontein, home to renowned San art engravings and the largest collection of petroglyphs - prehistoric rock art - in Africa. The combination of Africa's past and present makes for a fascinating visit.

Facilities

Perched on top of a small hill, the main camp's open-plan areas house the lounge with its big fireplace, a curio shop, small gallery and welcoming bar with large glass doors that fold away to give easy access to the extensive wooden deck and gorgeous views.

A staircase leads to the roof where you can enjoy relaxing sundowner drinks and incredible stargazing while the swimming pool is tucked away between rocks and looks out over the dramatic landscape.

Standard Tent

Accommodation at Doro Nawas Camp comprises 16 chalets which combine natural stone and canvas walls with wood and glass doors, all shaded by a thatch roof. The chalet's design and décor blend into the surrounding scenery and each one delivers comfort and luxury in the sometimes abrasive and arid semi-desert conditions.

Each chalet has a large comfortable bed that can be wheeled out onto your verandah for an incredible night's sleep under the stars. Rooms are en suite with a shower, 'his and hers' basins and a flush toilet; there is also an outdoor shower on your private veranda.
