We arrived at Damaraland Camp after 2 nights in Sousevelei (Little Kulala). From the arid desert, we were transfixed to a semi-arid desert. Much more green and a bit more plentiful wildlife (especially birds). The staff were welcoming and warm, the meals very good, and the tours (the highlight) great. Our first afternoon we took a nature drive that often... More

This camp is amazing for so many reasons - the staff, the rooms, the food and the location. There is the ability to charge electrical items in their main office and the pool has lovely views over the desert. The Food was excellent, we had a boma meal the first night and then a meal at a large table in... More

A thing that makes the difference: an amazing and lovely staff! The cheff, the waiters, our guide, everybody did the best to make our stay an enjoyable experience.

Our wonderful stay here started with a short but very scenic flight from Doro Nawas. A few minutes later, after a short drive, you turn a corner and there is the camp. On arrival we were welcomed with singing and the usual towels and drinks. Our tented chalet was very comfortable with plenty of hot water, incredible views from the... More

We drove a very long way from Ongava Lodge, another special Wilderness Resort in Namibia. It is an adventure to get to Damaraland, endless dusty rocky roads ( without many signs to assure you of your path.) The staff are exceedingly friendly and welcoming, you feel at home on arrival, the scenery is breathtaking! Our tent was roomy and clean.... More

I stayed in three camps in Namibia and this one really was whimsical in its setting. The landscape lent itself to beautiful purple and orange sunrise and sunsets over mountains that look almost fairytale. The Huab River Valley lends itself to desert adapted elephant, springbok, desert adapted giraffe, oryx and the rare black rhino. The staff at this camp along... More

Other reviews tell the whole story. A great and dramatic location after a very long drive but excellent service from a well-trained young staff. Agnes, in particular, deserves to be snapped up by a London 5 star hotel for her customer focus!

D-Camp, as this camp is called, is a true oasis in the desert. The hotel staff welcome you with song and refreshments every time that you return to camp. The guides are amazing and will respect the land and animals. The family style dinners in the "bush" are exquisite.
