Damara Mopane Lodge is an ideal base for exploring the unique gems of dramatic Damaraland - from prehistoric Twyfelfontein rock engravings and towering sandstone formations, to desert-adapted elephants and the Petrified Forest. Each quaint chalet features its own little garden complete with flowers, herbs and vegetables that are used to prepare fresh and tasty meals at the excellent restaurant. The charming setting and friendly staff really make the lodge.
Owned and largely managed by the local community, Damaraland Camp is a model of a successful community partnership. Eco-friendly, yet luxurious, this intimate safari camp offers first-hand encounters with some of the most highly-adapted local wildlife, particularly desert elephant and black rhino - in starkly beautiful surrounds.
Although not in a game-rich area per se, Doro Nawas Camp is an excellent base from where to explore the dramatic and stark Damaraland landscape. Arid and inhospitable, it's surprisingly home to a diverse range of desert-adapted wildlife, including desert-elephant, gemsbok, springbok, bat-eared fox – even the odd black rhino or cheetah.
Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp sits in scenic, wide valley where two tributaries of the Hoanib River meet. It straddles two wilderness areas: private Palmwag Concession and the iconic Skeleton Coast National Park in one of Namibia’s most remote areas. Dramatic scenery, sightings of remarkable desert-adapted wildlife and huge seal colonies are just some of its attractions …
Set in the starkly beautiful Hartmann Valley in the remote north-western corner of Namibia, Serra Cafema Camp is luxurious, intimate and peaceful; providing one of the most authentic interactions with the fascinating Himba people – one of the last semi-nomadic people on Earth.
