Wilderness Damaraland Camp is situated in one of the most pristine wilderness areas in Namibia. Located on the north face of the Huab River valley, with sensational views of the surrounding desert plains, ancient valleys and soaring peaks of the Brandberg Mountains, activities centre around exploring this ephemeral river system.
Large game is not concentrated year-round here, with the natural cycle of rainfall dictating the seasonal movement of wildlife along the Huab River. The Huab River only flows once or twice a year during the short rainy season but morning and afternoon nature drives in search of the desert-adapted elephant are a great favourite. Gemsbok, greater kudu, springbok, and occasionally lion, cheetah, and black rhino can be spotted and interesting flora such as Euphorbias and Shepherd’s Trees can be viewed on the way to some of Africa’s best known rock engravings, including the famous Twyfelfontein etchings.
The camp consists of 10 thatched ensuite units raised on individual wood decking – part of which extends out to form a large viewing deck with magnificent views down the valley. One of these is a family unit consisting of two ensuite tents with separate entrance but shared deck. The main area features a restaurant and bar, and a swimming pool. An open campfire and outdoor ‘boma’ can be enjoyed during calm evenings, with superb stargazing in the crystal-clear night skies.
