Damaraland Camp

Namibia Coast

Rating: Deluxe    

Damaraland Camp overview

Part owned and run by the local community, Damaraland Camp is in the private Torra Conservancy, an unspoilt region of stark natural beauty and home to the desert-adapted elephant. The camp is a little piece of luxury in the wilderness, a place you enjoy returning to after a safari and one where you always receive a warm welcome.

There are 10 chalets built on decks just off the ground with the dual benefits of lessening their impact on the environment and optimising the views. Constructed of wood, adobe and canvas and topped by a thatched roof, they are spacious with surprisingly cool interiors, though there are ceiling fans should you need them. There is a dressing room off the bedroom and an en-suite bathroom with twin vanities and a shower. Help yourself a cup of tea or coffee in your room and stroll out onto the veranda to unwind.

The main camp building is a large thatched area comprising the lounge with comfy sofas and coffee tables and the dining area with a long communal table. The whole structure is open sided so you can always enjoy the panoramic views, and is lit by lanterns after dark, bestowing a cosy ambience. Outside there's a secluded pool and deck with loungers and parasols, and a boma where you can sit and watch the stars at night, warmed by the camp fire.

Nature and wildlife are the focus of a stay at Damaraland Camp. You'll be able to take 4x4 drives and go on guided walks in the conservancy in search not only of the elephants, but also gemsbok, springbok, zebra, giraffe and, if lucky, black rhino, lion and cheetah. Bush breakfasts and sundowners make your time here that little bit more special.  


Open: Damaraland Camp is open all year.

Location: The camp is in the Torra Conservancy in northern Namibia.

Rooms: There are 10 adobe and thatch chalets including 1 larger family unit with 2 bedrooms. They are set on raised decking and have verandas. Inside, as well as the bedroom there’s a dressing area and a roomy bathroom with twin hand basins, a shower and supply of toiletries. Rooms are cooled by ceiling fans and are equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water and a safe.

Activities: Morning and afternoon nature drives along the Huab River, guided nature walks, follow walking trails in the Etendeka Mountains led by a guide, visits to local communities and star gazing. If staying 3 days or longer you’ll have the opportunity to drive out to see ancient rock art at Twyfelfontein.

Facilities: The central area is sheltered by a thatch roof and contains the lounge with a tea and coffee station, bar and dining area, and has a fireplace to ward off any cold weather. Also here you’ll find a gift shop and a small library. Outside there is a boma with a campfire, a popular spot for pre-prandial drinks and, later, for stargazing. The camp has an outdoor pool. The camp offers a laundry service.
