Our stay in this camp has been fantastic. It is different from all the other places we have been in Namibia, some more luxurious but none friendly and making you feel the guest they expected to have like this one. What Maggie and her staff do for the guests is something different from what happens elsewhere. Dinner in the bomas, breakfast perfectly prepared on the top of a hill to let guests enjoy the sun rising in a wonderful contest, lunch is the middle of the savanah prepared, I would say, with a touch of love. No words to explain how you feel there.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Damaraland Camp is situated in the Huab River valley in one of the best wilderness areas in Namibia, offering endless vistas across stark plains, ancient valleys and a stunning ochre-purple mountain backdrop. Ten large en-suite adobe-style thatched units are raised off the ground, each with a walk-in dressing area and a large deck on which to sit and contemplate the desert. The spacious living area comprises a dining area and swimming pool. New technology combined with ancient knowledge has produced an eco-friendly yet high performance design in this unique camp. An open campfire and outdoor ‘boma’ are enjoyed during the calm evenings and stargazing is superb, thanks to the crystal-clear night skies. Activities include nature drives and walks during which guests can see species such as desert-adapted elephant, gemsbok, kudu and springbok, and black rhino as well as rare succulent plants. Further afield, ancient rock art and the Petrified Forest are just some of the geological wonders in the area. Damaraland Camp is the result of an award-winning partnership between Wilderness Safaris and the Torra Conservancy ; visits to the local farmstead allow guests to see this relationship in action. ... more less
