Climate and Landscape
Damaraland Camp reported some moderate temperatures and cooler nights, and they even had a few drops of rain including one good shower of 20 mm, making a total of 80 mm for the month.

The area still looks dry but the rain should revive some of the grasses.

The elephants moved from the Huab River to the Twyfelfontein area as there is a bit of grass here; in fact, most of the game has also moved to this area.

Camp News
The De Riet Community’s Kindergarten received some books and stationery from guests and everyone was very excited about this donation.

The community has also started making bricks to generate a bit more income.

Ouma Rhyn from Fonteine, one of the founding Riemvasmakers, turned 93 years young, and Damaraland Camp staff attended a church service for her and celebrated with cake and drinks afterwards.

A new tourist centre is being built at De Riet, which is nearing completion.

Camp Activities
Surprising Damaraland Camp guests with our culinary delights is an ongoing passion, and boma evenings, breakfasts-with-a-view and teatime treats are always met with enjoyment and wonder by our visitors.

Guest Comments
“From start to finish was all excellent, the boma dinner, the food and the staff were amazing. Well run camp with great managers Jacques, Gwen and Emsie, and friendly staff.”

Staff News
Damaraland Camp welcomes Emsie Skrywer as its new F&B Manager, as well as Boetie, a new guide, to the family.

Everyone wishes Vanessa Beukes and Chris Matamola all the best with their new positions at Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp.
