Owned and for the most part, operated by the local community, Damaraland Camp offers a unique desert safari experience in the well-managed Torra Conservancy. Encompassing ancient valleys, arid plains and the dramatic peaks of the Brandberg Mountains, this region supports healthy populations of rare desert-adapted elephant. The presence of large game at Damaraland Camp is dictated entirely by rainfall; however, the area’s fascinating human residents and incredible geology could keep you entertained for days.
Spend a morning at a local community, learning about the history and culture of the Riemvasmaakers and Damara people. A guided walk through the Etendeka Mountains might reveal unusual bottle trees and mysterious fairy circles. Of course, if elephants are in the vicinity, go on a game drive to observe these gentle giants. At night, sit by the open fire and try to identify the many different constellations.
