Damaraland Camp (Damaraland
Damaraland Camp is a rare venture which integrates the
local villagers, the environment and sustainable wildlife.
Located on the north face of the Huab River Valley, 90 km.
from Torra Bay on Namibia's Skeleton Coast, the camp
presents endless vistas across stark plains, ancient valleys
and soaring peaks. The brooding mass of the Brandberg
provides a focal point, almost 100 km. to the south.
Early morning mists (fog) generated by the Atlantic and
the warm land mass along the Skeleton Coast drift inland
along the river line, providing sustenance to varied life
forms. The river flows only once or twice during the short
rain season, seldom breaking through the dunes to the ocean.
Nine comfortable walk-in tents, face the valley view and
each has en-suite facilities and a roomy verandah. The main
living area combines dining and pub under canvass, and an
open fire is enjoyed during calm evenings. The camp features
a lovely rock pool.
Game Viewing / Activities:
Wildlife is not concentrated, and the natural laws of
food and water availability indicate the movement and cycles
of the rare and endangered Desert Elephant, Black Rhino,
Oryx, Kudu, Springbok and other species that have to come to
terms with life in a desert environment. Activities center
around nature drives and walks into the Huab River system

Through the camp providing income, training and pride of
ownership, the community are realizing the value of their
wildlife assets. They are actively involved in the
protection and management of wildlife and the land we are
privileged to share with them. Star gazing is "par
excellence", with crystal-clear night skies. There are no
fences in the area which gives one a complete feeling of
freedom not often found, but in Namibia!
