Madisa Camp & Campsite
Madisa is a wonderful camp with meru-style tents and a campsite in Damaraland in prime desert-elephant country.

Twyfelfontein Country Lodge
Damaraland is a region of ancient oddities and Twyfelfontein Country Lodge is slap bang in the middle. Its cool interior, camouflage exterior and all-important swimming pool turn this humble lodge into a veritable oasis.
Doro Nawas, in the Abu-Huab River valley, is a classic safari camp with the benefit of modern architectural and design inspiration. Everything opens from floor to ceiling to include the spectacular views of the Etendeka Mountains and the red sandstone cliffs of Twyfelfontein - famous for its San rock engravings.

Malansrus Tented Camp
Half an hour from Twyfelfontein, Malansrus is a tented camp in the heart of Damaraland. Spacious. Private. Remote. Immersed in nature. True wilderness.
No joke, you’ll feel like you’re in a modern art installation. On another planet. A remote desert one. Think Star Wars’ Tatooine, this place is cool. Stylish, contemporary, minimalist it’s literally embedded into the rocks of Spitzkoppe.
The soft interiors make a striking statement against the bold backdrop of the Klip River Valley; Grootberg Lodge stands on the edge of the Grootberg Plateau in the heart of Damaraland half way between Etosha and the Skeleton Coast.
Erongo Wilderness Lodge
For its beautiful setting, striking chalets and elegant style, Erongo Wilderness Lodge is a fine example of Namibian hospitality. Built in and around hulking granite rocks, the lodge features spectacular views of the Erongo Mountains, an exceptional wilderness encounter and a tranquil, refined atmosphere.
Brandberg White Lady Lodge
At the end of a long, dusty, bumpy road is an oasis called the Brandberg White Lady Lodge: a pool, a cool drink and a secluded shady campsite with the Brandberg Mountain - Namibia's highest point - in full view.
On the north bank of the Huab River Valley, Damaraland Camp looks south over bleached grass, clusters of wild mustard bush and acacia thickets towards the Burnt Mountain - a variable-coloured throwback from the days of volcanoes and dinosaurs.
Camp Elephant Erindi Private Game Reserve
Erindi is a resort-like private game reserve in a 70,000-hectare swathe of African bush in central Namibia with a diversity of habitats. Camp Elephant offers self-catering chalets and campsites inside this vast conservation area.
The campsite is part of Palmwag Lodge. Beside the Uniab River in North Western Namibia. A place of myth and legend. Animals who have changed themselves. To survive. These guys really, really want to live, wow, how they say no to extinction. They demand life. Oh the dramatic resilience of nature. A sweeter place to rock up and roll out the ground sheet would be harder to find.
Tucked into and built around a jumble of elephant-size boulders, each campsite has its own ablution facilities, own kitchen and wonderful private settings. Your water is heated by a donkey - a wood-fired, boiler - and you have flushing toilets, sinks and and a glorious outdoor shower. What more could you want?
The Ugab Terraces in central Damaraland occupy an area of outstanding beauty and Vingerklip Lodge is a one of the best places to experience the endless vistas and vast open skies of Namibia.
Climb, stop, stare. Emptiness everywhere. And picture this. When these rocks were formed, T Rex’s were prancing all over North America. Yup. The Tyrannosaurus Rex. The big guy. Living in America. Welcome to the Cretaceous Period. Jurassic World has ended and life, as it now exists, came together. Flowering plants made their international debut, Spitzkoppe creaked into form.
Ask any Namibian tour guide where his favourite place is and the answer will be Damaraland. Something to do with the wide open spaces, the isolation, and the tenuous balance of nature in a rugged and dramatic landscape; or it could be the Huab Lodge.
