Damaraland Camp Attractions
The brooding mass of the Brandberg provides a focal point, almost 100 kilometres to the south. Early morning mists, generated by the meeting of the icy 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 rainy season, seldom breaking through the dunes to the ocean.
Damaraland Camp was rated as one of the top destinations of the `Ultimate Safari` in the March 1999 issue of Conde Nast Traveler.
The natural laws of food and water availability dictate the movement and cycles of the rare and endangered desert Elephant, Black Rhinoceros, Oryx, Kudu, Springbok and other species that have come to terms with life in a desert environment. Even Lion and Cheetah move in and out of the area occasionally.
Damaraland Camp Facilities
Ten large, comfortable, walk~in tents face the valley view and each has en suite facilities and a veranda. The main living area combines the dining room, lounge and pub under canvas, and an open camp fire is enjoyed during calm evenings. A feature of the camp is a rock swimming pool.
Damaraland Camp Additional Information
Activities revolve around nature drives and walks into the Huab River system. Star~gazing is "par excellence" because of crystal~clear night skies. There are no fences in the area which gives one a complete feeling of freedom.
