A serene camp in the Huab River Valley centred on community-based conservation

Situated in the Huab River Valley, with the striking Brandberg Mountains as a backdrop, Damaraland Camp is set on arid land where guests have the unique opportunity to admire the rare desert-adapted elephant roaming the sandy valleys alongside gemsbok, springbok, ostrich and other hardy desert animals. The camp is not only powered by a hybrid system, with each adobe-style tent having its own small solar panel and inverter as a solar-powered geyser to provide hot water, but it has also been a model for community-based conservation initiatives since 1996. Guests can enjoy several conservation-centred activities during their stay, like guided nature walks and drives or travelling to Tywfelfontein to view intricate San rock art dating back 6.000 years.
