Things to do at Damaraland Camp

Activities at Damaraland Camp revolve around exploring the Huab River system, surrounding desert plains and ancient valleys framed by the Etendeka Mountains. Guided nature drives and walks are a feature as well as engaging with the communities of the area.

Nature drives

Morning and afternoon game drives reveal the dramatic scenery and fascinating wildlife of the region. Desert-adapted elephant are the highlight of the area, although the natural cycle of rainfall dictates the seasonal movements of wildlife along the Huab River.

Cultural activities

Learn about the unique heritage of the local peoples, which include Nama-Damara, Herero, Owambo, and the displaced Riemvasmaakers of South Africa. This activity allows you to respectfully engage with these communities and it also includes a visit to a local farm at either Fonteine Pos or DeRiet.

Guided nature walks

Learn more about the ancient geological past and present of Damaraland as well as about the unique plants, birds and reptiles that have superbly adapted to this arid area.

Rock art excursions

Damaraland is world-famous for its ancient rock art; guests on stays of three nights or more can take a day drive to visit some of these remains and marvel at the artists of ages past. *On request; extra cost
