Set in the Huab River Valley, arguable the most pristine wilderness area in Namibia, Damaraland Camp offers extraordinary views of the surrounding desert plains, ancient valleys and the soaring peaks of Brandberg Mountains. This community run, eco-friendly Camp has fused new technology with ancient practices in an incredibly inventive manner. Accommodations consist of 10 adobe-styled, thatched units each raised on individual wooden decking, part of which extends out to form a large viewing deck with magnificent vistas. Each tent includes a walk-in dressing area, an attached shower facility, mosquito repellant, and a built in fan.
Meals are cooked over the fire and served out in the open area. The thatched common area features a spacious dining room and bar. Enjoy a break for the heat in the swimming pool, or tell stories around the campfire in the camp's boma on your Africa tour.
Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
