We stayed 2 nights as part of a tour and could not have been more pleased. It is a bumpy 20 minute drive to the "camp" but worth it for the views and sittings of mountain zebras. Staff greeted us with cool washcloths and big smiles. Attentive staff. Great food. Note though that not all rooms have electrical outlets so... More

We spent two nights at Damaraland Camp and really enjoyed it. It is very remote and with just 10 rooms/houses, it is very peaceful and in a beautiful location. The Damaraland area is pure, raw beauty. There is no phone signal or internet access available so be aware of that if you can’t live without it. Each house is situated... More

I have heard about Wilderness Safaris for years - and finally I was fortunate to stay in their camps this month. Damaraland Camp was absolutely fantastic and 1 night there was not long enough.

We stayed at Damaraland Campt for two nights in June, as much for the ever-changing, starkly beautiful scenery as for the animal life. We were not disappointed.
