Damaraland

About the area

During the day, Damarland’s boundless sceneries, breathtaking boulders, and vast mountains will have your eyes locked on its landscapes. At night, the African sky is switched on, and you’ll be enchanted all over again. As one of Namibia’s last “unofficial” wildlife regions, the desert-adapted lions and elephants, gemsbok, zebra, giraffe, and spotted hyena are all sights to see. Hosting some of Southern Africa’s finest prehistoric rock art engravings, an iconic petrified forest, and home to the Damara people, every inch of the magnificent 160.000 ha area will transport you into another world.
