Things to do at Doro Nawas Camp

An excellent base for self-drive and fly-in guests, activities here include nature drives and exploratory hikes to catch a glimpse of desert-adapted life, as well as discovering the geology and ancient rock engravings of this stark landscape.

Wildlife and scenic drives

While the landscape does not support huge herds, desert-adapted life such as springbok, gemsbok and even elephant do occur. We therefore offer nature drives in Land Rovers which can end with a river lunch or scenic walk ending at "Little Table Mountain."

Geological excursions

Visit the ancient San rock art at Twylfelfontein, a World Heritage Site, as well as the Petrified Forest, Burnt Mountain and Organ Pipes, all incredible geological phenomena.

Cultural visits

Back of house tours, and camp chats about the Doro !Nawas Conservancy, the Damara/Nama language and traditions all give insight into the community, while the Damara Living Museum shows off the traditional culture of the Damara people.

Guided nature walks

Learn more about the flora and fauna in this incredibly harsh environment. Adaptation to the desert environment is the miracle of all that survives here.

Scorpion night walks

After dark, another realm of the Namib awakes. Walks reveal some of these captivating critters such scorpions which fluoresce under UV lights.

Star bed

Sleep out under the starry starry skies of the Namib and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of Africa on your veranda.

Star gazing

Namibia is known for its clear night skies, and with no light pollution this is the ideal spot from which to learn about the stars and planets that whirl above us.
