Damaraland Camp

A unique desert experience in Namibia’s Torra Conservancy.

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.


Accommodation at Damaraland Camp is offered in simple but very comfortable adobe-and-thatch chalets. All have their own private verandas and open-air ensuite bathrooms. Meals can be enjoyed at the main lodge, where you’ll also find an inviting plunge pool and furnished sundeck.
